Excerpt from the note of SEAIR InFlight Editor:
“Experienced angler Tony Barrios hadn’t been able to make it on the flight out to Batanes for our fishing cover story. But another angler, Gordon Uy, was willing to help. Our writer wasn’t able to make it either and recommended Chip Childers, who comes from a family of anglers.
…Chip wasn’t able to catch a fish. The weather was not good, fierce waves rocked the boat, photographer Ferdz Decena was seasick and threw up. And then there was an accident at sea, when the fishing boat the editorial group was renting broke its propeller.
When I finally got the story and the photos, it was with a sigh of relief.
When you go out at sea to fish, you put yourself in the hands of the elements, and learn to respect and enjoy it. As one fisherman once said: “Fishing is like lovin. You have to take it slow.”
