 This  was  one  classical  trip!
 
 Me:  Driver,  Logistics,Fish  catching  and  Flora  collection.
 Trevor:  Navigator,  Fish  care  and  Time  keeper.
 Madhu:  Fish  catcher,  Fish  Identifier  and  water  changer.
 Deepak:  Location  study,  Fish  catcher  and  water  changer.
 Rufus:  Fish  catcher,  water  changer  and  Flora  collector.
 
 A  few  human  interest  stories  and  pics........
 
 It  was  a  last  minute  decision  to  explore  the  Sita  river.  The  planning  had  been  going  on  for  the  past  year.  Being  a  Naxalite  infested  area  the  problems  of  logistics  was  daunting.  We  were  keeping  a  keen  eye  on  the  ground  situation  there  and  when  the  Almatti  dam  trip  was  postponed  we  started  exploring  the  posibility  of  Sita  river.  Being  the  time  of  the  start  of  Monsoons  there  was  a  lul  in  the  Naxalite  activity  and  hence  a  reduction  of  vigil  on  the  part  of  the  security  forces.  There  was  a  small  window  open  for  us  and  we  decided  to  go  for  the  opportunity.(  Madhu,  the  reluctance  on  our  part  for  night  fishing  was  for  security  reasons!)
 
 But  once  Madan  dropped  out  due  to  some  reason  we  too  were  ready  to  back  out.  But  then  he  asked  us  to  proceed.  So  Trevor  and  me  decided  to  go.  Madan  mentioned  Rufus  as  a  possible  company.  Rufus  was  enthusiastic.  
 
 Since  the  trip  was  starting  the  next  day  morning  at  5.30am,  we  decided  to  concentrate  on  B'lore  Fish  Chasers  first.  But  Friday  being  a  working  day  they  could  not  make  it.  So  at  6.00pm  we  called  Madhu.  We  asked  him  to  drop  everything  that  he  was  doing  and  take  the  next  bus  to  Bangalore  from  salem!  He  thought  we  were  kidding  him.  But  on  assuring  otherwise  he  was  keen  to  join  and  made  it  to  Bangalore  at  4.00am  on  the  day  of  the  trip.  That  made  four  of  us.
 
 That  night  on  thursday  at  8.00pm  I  called  Deepak  to  ask  for  some  information  on  the  region  we  were  going.  On  being  told  about  our  destination  he  too  was  keen  to  join.  So  he  caught  the  next  bus  to  Shimoga  where  we  picked  him  up  at  10.45am.
 
 Part  of  the  Bangalore  "Fish  chasers"  group.  L  to  R:  Deepak,  Madhu,  Rufus,  Trevor  and  me.
 
 
 The  two  Fish  Chasers  Madhu  and  Deepak  waiting  motionless  in  the  water  so  as  not  to  scare  the  fish.
 
 
 Water  changing  using  Oxygen.  Trevor  made  sure  there  was  no  slack  here.  You  ignored  the  captured  fishes  at  your  own  peril.  Any  mistakes  and  Trevor  sir  would  blast  you  to  the  Moon.Chuckle  
 
 
 Rufus  enjoying  a  fresh  plucked  Guava.  Being  the  spring  time  we  got  to  eat  a  lot  of  fresh  fruits.
 
 
 Trevor  Sir,  the  Navigator  and  my  station  wagon  on  a  lonely  stretch  of  Road.
 
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Some  food  fruits  near  the  biotopes.  Fruit  ripened  and  fell  into  the  biotope.  Higher  concentrations  of  fish  were  found  near  these  over  hanging  fruit  trees.
 
 
 Jackfruit  -  Pods.
 
 Gauva  fruit.
 
 Cashew  fruit  with  the  seed  outside  the  fruit.  The  cashew  tree  is  one  of  the  only  trees  to  grow  on  laterite  rock.  These  trees  were  found  at  a  much  higher  level.  This  fruit  was  not  eaten  by  fish.  Collected  by  our  able  bodied  Fish  Chaser  Rufus.

 More  updates,
 
 There  are  unclaimed  articles  in  my  car.  They  being  the  following.........
 
 1)  A  pair  of  Bata  leather  slippers.
 2)  A  pair  of  shorts  32  inch  size.
 3)  A  soiled  T-shirt  30  inch  Size.
 4)  A  opened  dried  Amla  packet.
 5)  A  un-opened  pack  of  Coffee  powder.
 6)  A  opened  Cocum  (Kokam)  syrup.
 
 Unless  and  until  guys  come  forward  to  claim  this  by  this  Saturday,  these  things  are  going  to  be  Ruby's  play  toys.  And  no  Madhu,  I  am  not  talking  of  Trevor's  Ruuby!
 
 Murphys  Fish  chasers  axiom  #  1256342,
 The  driver  of  a  fish  chasers  trip  will  always  end  up  with  articles  which  are  a  size  too  short  or  a  size  too  large  for  him  to  use.

 The  choice  of  taste  of  the  edible  articles  left  behind  in  a  fish  chasers  trip  will  always  be  on  the  negative  side  of  the  taste  of  the  driver.
 
 Corollary  to  Murphys  fish  Chasers  axiom  #  1256342,
 The  driver  of  a  Fish  Chasers  trip  will  always  end  up  loosing  articles  which  are  very  useful  and  favorite  to  him!
