Is there any specific way of tackling with the locals ? In maharashtra, I learned that if you know marathi its well and good...

the problem is, me being a patil, marathi isnt one of my strong points...get nervous when talking with strangers in marathi...so is there any specific way you can explain locals about your good intentions of catch and release, without you being chased by locals carrying sickles trying to get a piece of you ?(Figuratively speaking) [smilie=headfuck.gif]

The best way is to be courteous, give respect and communicate only when necessary. Being flashy and loud is the worst thing you can do to draw hostilities. Even in case of confrontation, remain calm but firm. I have fished a lot in Maharashtra and to me, Marathis are true hearted gentleman and I have never faced any situation where I have to face any hostility due to me being a non Marathi.

Regards,

Ali.

i completely agree with what Ali Bhai has to say, and this applies not only to MH, but across the country... do keep a few things in mind: A) You are on their turf and their backyard, so its best to be polite whether you like it or not. B) The local fellow is as curious about you as you are about catching a fish... We guys have noticed that its best to befriend a local who is keen on your tackle... they know more about the waters than you do, so it helps in the long run... furthermore, if you befriend even one guy there, you automatically become their guest rather than an 'outsider'...
All it takes is a few kind words...

tight lines...

walk away... no point ruining your fishing trip! Find another spot!!! Whatever you do, dont get agressive! The native is the home team and you are the visitor!!! Best thing to do is to befriend a local before you start!!!
