    Yes, the boat fee is to and from the jetty to the island.

    I do understand that the fee sounds expensive but we have no choice. Accessiblity to the island is restricted.

    Hi All

    Most interesting is join the group of Sport Fisherman organizes by Sport Fishing Association (Singapore) www.sfas.net

    Every month till Oct 2008, there's a fishing league on Semakau Landfill.

    Next League is on 20th April.

    I was there for this month league.

    Your photo shoot is more interesting with these Sport Anglers doing their things.

    You need a tele-lens to capture them in action. These anglers do not seat and wait for the bite. They move around quiet often to catch the fishes 'cos only artificial lure or flies are used. And strictly Catch & Release of the fishes.

    Interested can call me at 90298883 (ed chen)
