What you'll do

I will be your guide to a random fishing spot in Singapore.
There are 15 reservoirs available for fishing and freshwater fishing will be the main highlight. I will bring you to one of the favorite angler spots.
I can't promise a sure catch, but I can promise amazing scenery and the opportunity for good pictures.
This experience is open to ALL, even those who know nothing about fishing.
If you know nothing, I will teach you how to start fishing, maybe you will be hooked on fishing too!
If you already know, I will teach you techniques we Singaporeans use to target the monsters in our waters.
Rod and lures will be kindly provided free of charge. No using of smelly Baits, only artificial plastic Lures.
Catch-and-release techniques will be practiced, that means absolutely no bringing of fishes home so as to preserve Mother Nature. Catching of fishes are not guaranteed but you will definitely learn something new about fishing and Singapore.
Your main takeaway is that you will be able to fish anywhere whenever you want after this lesson, from a complete newbie to an experienced angler in a few hours.
Hit me up with any queries, any special arrangements required can be discussed.
Other things to note
We provide fishing rods if you do not have.
Bring along water and your camera.
If the weather is bad, we will either have to cancel or postpone. No fishing experience required.

Hi, I'm an avid angler, and I have been fishing at the reservoirs, and by the sea, for five years. I went to Jeju, Korea last year to fish and realized that it would have been so much better to have a local guide take us to the good fishing spots. Hence, I decided that I want to host fishing enthusiasts when they come to Singapore. The prized peacock bass can be caught in Singapore freshwaters. Snake head, tilapias, pacu fish, and several other species can be caught too. Note that it will be catch-and-release, so our future generations can also know the joy of fishing.

Where you'll be

We will be in a pleasant place for leisure activities—on land and in the water. A fishing jetty extends from the park into the reservoir, for avid anglers who cast their rods in hopes of hooking snakeheads, tilapias, peacock bass. Benches along the edge of the reservoir provide a great view of the beauty and tranquility of the surroundings. Location options include Lower Pierce Reservoir, Bedok Reservoir (East), and Pandan Reservoir (West).

It was my first time fishing but Rodney was a great teacher and he taught me all the basic techniques I needed to know to get started. What I love was that we jump right into action, which means that you have a full 2.5hrs to fish. We were really luckily to catch a fish! I also enjoyed my conversations with Rodney while we were casting our lines. Although I was alone, he made me feel very comfortable and coached me whenever necessary. I will definitely recommend this experience for those who want to try their hands at fishing!

Rodney and his brothers made sure that we were well equipped with both knowledge and equipment for our first fishing experience. My 6 year old son totally loved it, even though he didn't catch anything. I think that says a lot about how comfortable he felt with the whole experience. We came away feeling confident of casting, changing lures etc. Thanks again to Rodney, Benjamin & Brian.

The Fishing Air BnB Experience I had with Rodney was very educational and memorable. In the few hours we had together, Rodney and his Brother Ben took me along a very quiet and peaceful bank of the reservoir. There, the weather was cool and the view, captivating. The first segment of the experience was highly educational. From form and function, techniques in casting to the various types of lures in Rodney’s ever growing arsenal, there was so much more to learn than I had originally expected. Nevertheless, we started casting our rods into the water. Every so often, Rodney and Ben would change the lures, giving me another opportunity to learn how different lures would transform the way an angler has to reel in and twitch the rod. These are just some of the few that I learned. Standard Fish lure with a weight in the head: Causes the ‘Fish’ to dip downwards into the rocks to mimic foraging for edibles. Slowly reeling and tugging slightly at the rod causes a fidgety intermittent darting of the ‘Fish’ as if it were alive and actively foraging. Popper (Almost a headless Fish lure with a concave opening where the head should be): The concave feature causes a small but intense wave of water splashing onto the surface of the water when reeled in. Anglers jerk the line fairly aggressively to cause a loud splash to catch the attention of passing fish, but after the jerk, leave the lure alone for 3-4 seconds to give the local Peacock bass to strike. Gummy Worm: The lure although light, was heavy enough to sink to the bottom of the water. Anglers would lift the rod (wrist only) twitching the lure just enough to lift the ‘Worm’ near the surface. Doing this repeatedly causes the Worm to bob up and down, almost as if a helpless Worm was aimlessly floating by. The few hours we had were definitely not enough for me as there was so much more to learn and explore. This experience was one worth having, be it for a local such as myself or a tourist. It’s a great experience to start the day fresh, catch the sunrise and have some adventure in the waters! P.S: Fish were caught, Fish were released. Probably had less fun than we did!

Rodney was warm and patient with the 3 kids and they felt very comfortable with him. He taught them the basics of fishing and took the time to correct and improve their efforts. The kids can’t wait now to go fishing again.

Rodney and brother Benjamin are very kind and patient. They allowed me to bring my five-year-old daughter and really made her feel special. Although we didn't catch any fish, she got to learn about fishing and made new friends.

This was quite a surreal experience for friend and I. The atmosphere is great, we found the fishing itself quite therapeutic. If anything, come here to get away from the hub-bub of Singapore.
