    ^ Aquaponics is a few levels up from what I'm blundering around with... See Will has an excellent thread on that stuff and it's very involved.

    I decided to take Baldrick's advice and try out fish pellet bait... it can't be worse than my last advice to use peas!

    I cut off an old sock at the ankle and the littlun put a few handfuls of pellets inside.



    Banged the stake in to tie the trap tether to... in case we get a big one!



    And we're set! Roll on tomorrow!



    I'm quietly confident this time... but I can't see us catching a pla chon with fish pellet bait. More likely one of the big catfish... but we shall see.

    Mendip,
    I always wonder why when I see Thai's using hammers they hold them up by the head losing all leverage and pounding force. My FIL, wife, BIL and my few neighbors do the same. I see your daughter holding the hammer the same way.

    Its a weird thing here. Maybe its the cheap nails that bend so they tap them in little by little versus a few swings and done.

    ^ Something I'd never really noticed, but I think in this case the lump hammer is just too heavy for my daughter to lift from the end.

    Hammer lessons coming up!

    Absolutely. Likely the case with your daughter. I was in no way picking on her. I just see adult Thais hold them the same way and I figured someone taught them. Same with Swimming here, they all seem to "dog paddle".

    We went down to the pond today full of hope.

    The littlun started pulling in the fish trap... baited using Baldrick's great idea of fish pellets wrapped in a cloth.

    Dan joined us during a rare break between modelling assignments!



    It took some getting in... I'd thrown the trap right out into the middle of the pond, where the big fish should be.

    Finally it was near the bank...




    And.... nothing.




    That was a waste of a perfectly good sock.

A certain Mr Fish along with 4 page 3 girls got invited down (he'd retired by then). Mr Fish its turns out he liked a drink and on one night (allegedly) made quite a number of inappropriate remarks and goosed up one of the female civilian staff. He left on the next flight.
    The Met Office lot were a bit weird, one bloke had to be restrained on a flight back to Brize and he was pissed when he got on the morning flight to the Ascension Is stop off and had a stash of vodka, continued to get pissed and stripped off shouting about how he was going skydiving. Does funny things to you the Falk Is.
