Salam semua, Hari ni aku nak cerita pasal ikan puyu? Tahu tak apa itu ikan puyu? Ok. Itu ikan ‘darat’ tersangat la hanyir dan hanya orang-orang tertentu seperti my mum je dapat menahan diri untuk menyiang ikan-ikan nih tapi yang penting ia sangat sedap kalo dibuat sambal tumis. Seriously! Well, sekarang let me tell you guys how actually the process of catching this kind of fish. Firstly you must wait untill the padi started turn into yellowish color. Dah masak la tuh dalam erti kata laen. At this time, the farmers normally letting the water flow out from their field in order to make sure that the process of harvesting the padi run smoothly and easy breezy. Then, my mom and dad will find something like net to tight it at the end of the pipe which flowing the water from padi field to the main stream. Tersangat la kotor sebab stream tuh sometimes air nye kaler hijau ninja turtle. Why??? Sebab ade kilang paper yang discharge unwanted liquid to the stream. Salah sapa? After fitting the net and ensure the opening of the net is well fitted at the end of the pipe, then balik umah lah makan2, minom2 or tido sepam dua. Normally, we set the net in the evening and come and do a routine check up at night once, after the dawn and in the middle of the day. At first day of checking the net, it was super duper awesome!!! Alhamdulillah. I didn’t believe that we did catch a lot of em. Repeat.. A lot included Haruan (Snakefish). It has been quite a long time since I ate Gulai Ikan Haruan with Cucumber. My lovely grandma’s recipe. It tastes very scrumptious~ all we have to do is some cooperation to relocate the fishes into big plastic bag which is thick enough. If not, the plastic might tear off due to the fins of ikan puyu. Sangat tajam OK dan berbisa kalo kene duri ikan nih. Then, we have to put back the net and set the opening of the net and secure it with wire line. The main problem is biawak!! Tahu apa itu biawak? Not biawak hidup. Itu peribahasa OK. This creature will just simply kidnap the fish caught inside the net. *pemalas* .The other option to avoid kidnapping from biawak is doing the routine check frequently. Sometime anaconda pon ada..hihi.. When the rains pouring down heavily, then the chances to get more fish is augmented. Well, when the velocity of flowing water increases, it will definitely attract more fish to swim into the stream and at the end caught in the net. Alhamdulillah.
