It Pays To Be Patient…Really.

What made me noticed this young man was he was fishing without a rod, just a hook and string. I was taking a walk along the seafront of Kota Kinabalu deciding where to have lunch when I saw him throwing and pulling something from the waters. Having found a shaded area, I stopped and watched him. I don’t know how long he’d been standing and sitting and fixing his bait and throwing it back again but I think I watched him for over an hour.
