Chapter 27 Bass fishing in hostile territory

One of the guards came to see me while he was doing his call-up in the Army and wanted to know if I wanted to go fishing with him and his troops.

I still had my camo from the Air force and quickly got dressed and off we went on an army truck. A few miles south of Wankie we turned off the main road and proceeded to the most beautiful dam I have seen. A few guards were placed around the perimeter because this was terrorist country and we proceeded to catch bass. This really was a special dam as we caught some nice bass around 5 to 8 pounds while the guards were on the outlook for terrs. We filled the keep nets with some lovely fish.
