Sample Answer 2

My neighbourhood is not on the coast. It is a landlocked place surrounded by major cities. So, except for a few ponds, there aren’t many places to go fishing. However, there is a body of water around 85 kilometres from my hometown that has an excellent fishing location.

My passion for fishing and fishing gear began in my early infancy when curiosity was at its best and the drive to learn was strongest. Nangal is a small town where the majority of the people is involved in some way with the dam and reservoir.

There are several distinct species of fish at this dam. In geography class at school, I learned about the dam and reservoir. My uncle used to take me there when I was little. He drove from our town to Nangal once a week. He extended an open invitation for me to spend the holidays there with my pals.

So, on Monday morning, my uncle and I went there. We explored the town until around 5.30 PM, and then he joined us in the evening and showed us all the sights. He drove us to a reservoir where we observed numerous local fisherman selling their catch.

We saw several fishing nets in the lake, but most of the fishing was done in the morning. We went along the reservoir’s rim, which had a lovely river walk along its edge, and enjoyed the cool breeze. The next day, we spent the entire day by the reservoir, swimming, playing volleyball, and even attempting and failing terribly at fishing.

Anyway, this would have to be my favourite memory of a fishing spot I visited once.
