I first met Giorgi from Georgian fishing tours back at the end of 2013, when we did a fishing tour at Jandari lake organized by his company. I noticed a free fishing tour offer on their Facebook page. I claimed that offer and I was the lucky to actually get a free fishing tour. Make sure you follow their Facebook page as well - who knows, maybe more such offers will follow. If not - price for such tours are not very expensive and is worth of every tetri spent.

So, that's how I get familiar with Girogi and his friend Temo from Georgian Fishing tours. Couple of days later a fishing tour to Jandari lake near border of Azerbaijan was organized.

Girogi arrived to our apartment at around 4AM in his 4x4 wheel Nissan car, he had prepared spinnings, nets, bait and all the rest what is necessary for a decent fishing tour, we just took a waterproof clothing, boots and some snacks.

We arrived on site about after an hour drive (which led us through Rustavi town). It was still dark and I had an option to capture sunrise over Jandari lake

I was limited to my old Sony DSC camera (bridge camera), which was still able about two years latter post - post - processed in Adobe Lightroom get me a decent exposures from here. See: Digital photography school

I'm not addict fisherman, so I don't know much about fishing actually, Giorgi was keen to give me a quick lesson on basics, like how to throw spinning correctly in the water and so on...

To get here to Jandari lake, a 4x4 wheel is a must have. Georgian Fishing tours had that Nissan SUV car .

The bottom line

Cows, a lot of fish, homemade vodka (chacha) and  plenty of great emotions. Our catch that day - about 8 kilos of fish (most of our catch was actually catchef by Girogi and his friend, we got the cath as a present - that's what passionate fisherman does - they catch the fishes, they don't eat them)

Thank's Giga and Temo for such a wonderful expierence!
