Ducked out for an early morning fish! Yes, Hamo was sitting chatting to someone on the coast yesterday looking at how flat the ocean was and decided that instead of meeting me on the land today at 10, we could change the time for a few hours earlier and meet ‘off shore’ and dangle some lines.
Well, lets just say – it was not ‘flat and glassy’ as suggested by my skipper. There were some fish pulled in, but nothing to keep, I think I pulled in the same poor little weed eater twice, he looked up at me with exasperation the second time!
It was not long after that I noticed Hamo looking like he was not handling the swell to good. I asked quietly if he thought we needed to return for coffee on the land. He was very grateful for my suggestion, a little embarrased, humbled, but nevertheless grateful. I know he would have thrown up if I had insisted we remain any longer…poor guy, bit soft around the edges when it comes to sea-sickness I think!
