The Fisherman’s Tail

paulfriendA few years ago my mate Paul was out fishing, and managed to land one of these beauties. I won’t tell you where she was caught, because the locals get a bit sensitive about that sort of thing, but I can tell you he used the normal sort of bait – a box of salmon-flavoured chocolates. I believe a bottle of anchovy wine works just as well though.
As with any specimens of hominus piscatorius, the local ones are not compatible with humans. They are caught strictly for sport, on a “catch, kiss and release” basis.

When beach fishing, you need to cast out into deep water and wait for a gentle tug on the line. Then just reel in slowly until the catch is landed.
A word of warning – if you feel a sharp tug on the line, DO NOT reel it in. It is probably a male, and they are big, ugly, more fishlike and very aggressive! If you try to kiss one of them you’ll probably get your head bitten off.
