Kap. Larry's Pond at Brgy. Coloong, Valenzuela City: One Valenzuela's First Fishy Visit

The signage about the 5th Fun Fishing Tournament on the community bulletin board definitely tickled One Valenzuela's "Happy Feet" instinct. She has never been to Coloong and the generic invitation of the tournament seemed to be the sign she has been waiting for from the heavens.


5th Fun Fishing Tournament at Coloong, Valenzuela City
From Malinta, she rode a jeepney going to Malanday at around 2 o'clock in the afternoon. From Malanday, Kap. Larry's Pond is just a quick tricycle ride away. 


Almost there!
Since One Valenzuela does not own a fishing rod (Translation: She has never tried fishing before.), she courteously asked the person in charge that afternoon if she can just take a look at the place, snapping photos here and there. Gladly, he said "Opo, Ma'am" (Yes, Ma'am). Later on, One Valenzuela learned that the person she has spoken to is JC Montemayor (Jhay C/JC, hope the spelling is right), a graduate of Valenzuela City's local university.

Kap. Larry's Fish Pond Rates
Upon entry, One Valenzuela saw several cottages by the pond's bank (pilapil). There were many trees which offer shade to those patiently luring fishes with their worm and masa baits. And yes, the gentle breeze definitely gave coolness against the hot summer heat.

There were a few individuals casting their lines on a pond near the entrance of Kap Larry's. The area where bigger fishes can be caught is closed in time for the tournament which will take place on the 20th this April.

Masa,a type of bait, can be seen in this photo as a lump of dough on the bamboo end.
The fishes that you catch will later on be weighed. They got an ayungin here.
So serene
According to Paolo, he sometimes sees some individuals selling masa, a type of bait made of flour and bread, at Php30 and cups of worms at Php20. JC said that one can rent their pavilion for special events. You can also grill your catch from the pond at the available grilling stations. 

Grill your catch!

One Valenzuela would like to thank a group of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Valenzuela graduates (see photo above) for making her visit more lively and fun. She is already thinking of trying her hand on fishing soon after the many stories they have shared.

How to reach Kap. Larry's Fish Pond (via public transportation):
From Malanday, McArthur Hiway, ride a tricycle (red) at the COTODA/Malanday Terminal (Php12 per head; Php36 special ride). 


Brgy. Malanday. The terminal of tricycles going to Coloong is just at the right of  7-Eleven.

Photo is quite dim since One Valenzuela took the shot when she  was on her way home.

COTODA
The tricycle will be traversing M.H. Del Pilar Road and will turn right at Coloong I Road.

  2. would you suggest that this could be a great family activity? I want to try this as well as my kids but we don't have any fishing experience as well as equipment. Does the Kap Larry's Pond provide rods for rent or something?

    1. Yeah, you can bring your kids there for a change.I brought mine last summer and she tried fishing using just a line and hook rolled on a plastic bottle. You can rent rods there too. JC and other folks who fish there are very helpful to us who are new to fishing. Don't be shy to ask for help. I suggest that you bring food and drinks so you can munch/gulp on something while waiting for the fish to bite your bait.
