Savusavu Weather

17th August
The weather has been really fantastic for the last couple of weeks.
Terry was busy, painting on the boat last week, so wasn't able to get out on the water until Sunday.

This time we took out a Father & 2 young sons.
They hadn't ever caught anything, or used rod & reels, so this was going to be a new experience for them.

They were late getting to the boat, as the resort had forgotten to pack them breakfast.
We finally got away from the resort jetty, just before 7.30, & already the sun was up & it was starting to get hot.

There were fish around, when we arrived at the fishing spot, & soon had a double hook up, it took a while to bring the fish in, as Terry had to show them the workings of the rod. We lost a few fish, but at least they were learning how to use the equipment.

By the end of the charter, the boys had managed to master bringing fish in very well.
Just as we headed in for home, Dad caught himself a nice Walu, this was a excellent ending to a very, relaxing day on the water.
