Tilapia beware

Today we got fishing gear in the local market. We are going to go our to the river and fish. We made our own fishing poles out of bamboo.  One of our neighbors cut down some bamboo and had a big pile. We went and collect some of it to make our own fishing poles.

I am trimming up my bamboo with a panga (machete)

Dad, Everett and I went to the market today to buy fishing line and hooks. We got 20 hooks for 100 shillings each, Dad says that is about 4 cents each!  We bought 100 yards of fishing line for 1000 shillings, that is about 40 cents.

                                                                                          Tilapia beware!

                                                                                          Tilapia beware!

We hope to catch tilapia tomorrow when we are at the river.  We are going to dig for worms in the rice fields right by the river to use as bait. 

Watch for pictures of our fishing adventure! Stay tuned until next time....
