Funny thing is... on my 3rd cast of the morning, I struck the Mango tree branch above me when I casted. The guys were all laughing, -Wow! Ang laki ng huli mong puno ng Mangga! Namely UU, Booger, Dongkiev and Moleman.

Took me a while to get it free, I almost fell in the pond trying to do so.

Got it free, casted, retreive... STRIKE!

Weeeee! After UU scooped it with the landing net...

guess who was laughing then? Hehehehe!

*Even won the Berkley Soft Plastic Competition for the month of October with this entry of mine. Received my prizes, an Abu Garcia Ultracast 2000 spinning reel and a Fenwick Eagle Rod.

Thanks to Berkley and Fishing Buddy.
