On a recent visit to the Peak District Lead Mining Museum I noticed these two boys hanging over the railings, trying to catch the attention of the fish in the pond outside the museum.
A pet shop in the Northern Quarter in Manchester.
Banded jewel fish – Hemichromis elongatus – probably not for sale at Hilton Aqua Emporium. I caught these fish in the Zambezi River, above the Victoria Falls, and kept them in my tank at home. I love the subtle, piggy-pink belly.
A fishing trip to the Lower Zambezi, near Mana Pools – one of my favourite places on Earth.
The first catch of the day.
A Tigerfish – Hydrocynus vittatus – definitely a catch worth smiling about!
A more traditional method of fishing.
Tradition meets modern.
