During the December vacation, Lim, Ali and I decided to go fishing at the
lake near my house. We brought along our fishing rods,
baits, and cold drinks. Soon, we found a shady spot, fixed the
bait, threw our lines into the water and waited. Half an hour later, there
was still no sign of any fish.
Suddenly, Lim shouted excitedly that he felt a strong
tug at his line. We became excited too,
and helped him to pull the fish out as it was heavy. Lim was overjoyed at
the sight of the huge fish. We tried our luck again and waited patiently.
Soon I felt a strong tug but it turned out to be on old rusty tin can. We
had a good laugh and threw the can away. I was quite disappointed.
We then drank some cold orange juice and chatted for a while. The next
time we threw in our lines, we were lucky. All of us pulled out more fish.
They were smaller but good for frying. We were now quite satisfied with our
As it threatened to rain, we picked up our fishing rods and our basket of
fish and returned home happily. My mother was glad to see us home safely,
and promised to fry the fish for us. It was a good
attempt at fishing and we hope to get a better catch next time.
