#365 - Let's walk

Little Max decided to take a walk with us today.
His owner wasn't too pleased after he woke up, but what should I have done? Wake him up for that ;)?

Max is supposed to be the watchdog at the lake when he's grown up. So he shouldn't have contact to anybody, only his owners.
But give me a break,. Then you need to put him in a cage from baby days on, no? ;)

He had fun :)

(Why is it so hard to take a decent shot from a little puppy? Do they really have to start moving every time you point that camera in their direction? ;)

#365 - Proud

Yepp, I am.
I caught my first Pike (Hecht) yesterday.
Only a baby, but nonetheless my first "real" fish caught with a Lurer from Salmo :)

Only had time to download pics from the last few days and upload this one and we are heading out the door again in a few minutes ;)
Have a great weekend - we will enjoy some good fish later again and hopefully some sunshine. But it looks a bit cloudy and cold...oh well :)

We were trying these new Lurers from Salmo and were lucky quite a few times. Floyd caught three Pike off them and I caught my first one.
Pretty cool :)!

#Hungary - Rinyaszentkirály

Quick catch over my shoulder

Caught this one last night while fishing. It's the lake on the other side of "our lake".
Right now you have bunches of Carp jumping there. I try to catch a shot of them today, it's amazing!
We are on the run again. In a few minutes we get ready to go over there and fish a bit ourselves and watch Andreas do some flyfishing :)
It's a holiday over here today, so there will be quite a few people, I guess.
I wish you all a great week, have fun!

Too bad... ;)
We would have needed that 6.8 Kilo Beauty yesterday.
Floyd caught it with a baitfish. Somehow the bigger ones like these better then the lurers it seems. Maybe fish DO learn over the years ;)
I fished all afternoon too (with lurers) and had my first hit from a pike, but I lost it. Oh well :)
Now I'm dead tired and will go to bed soon!
Take care out there and see you whenever .... sigh.....!

#Hungary - Rinyaszentkirály

Beautiful start

We have been on the Balzer fishing tournament Saturday. It was a great experience.
This time they fished from the shore instead of boats.
The areas were sepreated in two sides of the lake. First part was two hours on one side
and then two hours on the other.
No huge fish got caught, neither by us nor by any other.
The biggest was 3 Kilo. But our friend Patrick (a 13 year old local boy)
did win the first price and Floyd got the price for the best "Auslaender" (foreigner ;).
It was a pretty cool day with lots of great people.

Early morning

Goofing with long exposure. It was early morning and not many people there yet. Just the organizers and a few other people. I like the ghostly effects :)

Cooking starts early in Hungary...

....it was a different sort of goulash and it was delicious. It cooked for at least 4 hours. He started at 6.30 a.m. and we ate at around 1.30 p.m.

Humming "Early morning yesterday...."


Waiting too

Short speech from the Boss

Getting the number and the spot


I'm walking......

Getting ready, if they ever get the idea how ;)
At the starting line, get in line (like in school - counting the numbers - not so easy for grown up men... ;), and get to the spots where they want to fish.

#365 - Stormy day

We planned to do a camping weekend and a little party at "our" fishing lake. I made pasta salad and some other stuff, they were going to do some good food, called Pacal here in hungary and menudo in mexico. It is some sort of goulash, made of cow stomach. Doesn't sound very great, but cooked right, it's awesome :)!

Wir haben ein Campingwochenende mit kleiner Party an "unserem" See geplant. Es hat allerdings etwas stuermisch angefangen.
Ich hatte Nudelsalat , Brot und Griebenschmalz gemacht, die anderen wollten eine Art Gulasch aus Kuhmagen machen. Klingt nicht so klasse, schmeckt aber richtig gekocht, absolut genial!

Hey, why does the water move now?

Hey, warum bewegt sich auf einmal das Wasser?

#365 - The new family member at the fishing lake

This is the daughter of the owner of the lake and their new family member "Max".
8 weeks old and cute as can be :)

Das ist Rika, die ochter von dem Besitzer des Angelsees mit ihrem neuesten Familienmitglied "Max".
8 Wochen alt und total suess.


Too cute to stay in focus ;)

Zu suess um im Fokus zu bleiben.... ;)


Hey, we want to see him too.....!

Hey, wir wollen ihn auch sehen.....


Hey, I want to be part of that party too!

Hey, ich will auch bei der Party mitmachen....!


I'm not sure about YOU!

For some reason, King didn't get along well with this little fellow, as much as Max tried, King kept growling and even snapping at him. Maybe because he gets as big as him soon?

So sehr sich Max auch angestrengt hat, King konnte sich nicht fuer ihn erwaermen. Er hat ihn angeknurrt und sogar nach ihm geschnappt.
Ob es daran liegt, dass er bald fast so gross sein wird wie King?


Don't be too rough, ok?!

Roughies :)
It went on like that the whole weekend. We had a high count of 5 dogs on saturday afternoon, all ganging up at each other randomly :)

So ging es das ganze Wochenende. Samstag hatten wir eine Hochrechnung von 5 Hunden, die immer abwechselnd gegeneinander "gekaempft" haben ;)


I'm having a blast, can't you tell?

Take that thing out of my face, will ya?!

Give me a break, alright?!

Ode to the Goddess ~ Ode an die Goettin

I know you are there
sometimes I ignore you
I would love to praise you

Warm my heart
it's cold like ice
that'll make me love you


Ich weiss Du bist da
manchmal ignoriere ich Dich
ich wuerde Dich gerne verehren

Waerme mein Herz
es ist kalt wie Eis
das wird mich Dich lieben lernen

#Korea - Seoul airport

After finding this bridge, you can't miss the airport anymore. But when you come the wrong way, it can take you ours to get there. No signs and nobody that knows, what an airport is, or where to find it ;)

I tried to get a snap from the red beach and the island here...oh well :)

Wenn Du diese Bruecke erreicht hast, kannst Du den Flughafen nicht mehr verfehlen. Aber wehe, wenn Du sie verpasst. Keine Schilder und keiner, der weiss, wo der Flughafen ist ;)

Hier wollte ich den roten Strand und die Insel knipsen, naja ;)

And I always thought, a limousine is only a car....

Und ich habe immer gadcht, eine Limousine ist nur ein Auto......

They never work alone ;)

Die arbeiten nie alleine ;)



Always in twos or threes

Immer zu zweit oder dritt...
