With the Mumbai shootouts i advise all my mumbai anglers to refrain from going fishing for some time,the reason being a angler with a rod on his back and a rucksack may send wrong signals to security personnel and local population.I got myself into a sticky situation some years ago during a similiar situation and was detained by the police and then let go.

But on a serious note, heliox is right! Let's not make the Police's job any harder, given the present scenario.
Especially, as it have been proved that terrorists have come via sea route, I guess the coast line will be closely (read suspiciously) watched by cops.

Let's hope better sense prevail soon :roll:

Cheers

Hi Guys,

Does not matter, I have been stopped and questioned so many times when fishing, by police, coast guard and navy. Especailly in places like Srivardan and Murud.

The way they do things is quite haphazard especially the police and customs (Navy and coastguard are thorough), I mean they question and thoroughly check you sometimes escort you away, however they do it because we are open about it. If terrorists want to get in they can so in effect they only harass innocent people and the real bad guys get way and get in to create mayhem.

You clearly get the impression from the Police and Customs that they know who you are but just want to harass you. With the Navy it is very clear cut and that is something I apprecaite even if they ask you to vacate.

Bobby

Can understand if one is in the boat and looks suspicious as Niel says.

I had a very funny encounter with two constables near bandra Gymkhana.

Went there with Dean & his wife, and while returning was showing a fishing rod to dean when two beat marshal saw us. Had a tough time convincing them that the thing in my hands was not a gun but a fishing rod which is used to catch fish. Don't ask what happened when I showed them the reel :x

Santosh

One has to co-operate with the authorities requests for checking the rod tubes and stop when directed. Most of the fishing is early morning and late evenings in far out areas. this is part and parcel of the joys of fishing

Dear Prashant,

Here is an open letter:

Please do not to carry that ugly sewage pipe that you passes off for a rod holder. trust me, it crudely resembles a RPG or maybe to a Bazooka. Put it back in the sewage where it belongs. Not in the front AND back seat of my car.

Your well wisher!!

once traveling with rod as soon as i entered airport premises a thousand eyes gazed at me looking suspiciously at my pipe rod case further put in a hard plastic bag cover. a security man asked me bout it confirming its not a gun or mortar. i had to take a connecting flight from kolkatta . i had to collect and again give to another airliner. As i was bout to do that two policeman in plain cloths came to me and asked me to come along. they took me to airport security chief office where i was asked to open and show it.chekin counter guys again enquired bout its contains. good that i didnt carry it as cabin baggage otherwise fellow passenger would had a "troubled" flight. :wink:

Our police force really need an education....it will help them to quickly identify stuff and concentrate on more important things, however corruption is another thing.

Can you believe on the 26th night/27th morning my friend was going to the airport (Bombay) to catch a flight to Hong Kong, the security was max with several check points. Believe it or not at check points they were asking for "Chai-pani" my friend had half a mind to tell them to go to the Taj for their damn Chai-Pani. This was around 2 am on the 27th actually.
