Hi board

I am coming to india from the uk for 6mths beginning of feb 2008, & was wondering if anyone could suggest a couple of fishing locations nearby (freshwater) i want to catch anything that will put a decent bend in the rod, I am also geared up for mahseer.

hope someone can help,
best regards
Paul............

The most important thing to remember is not to overdo the tackle.
(Bops has just fallen over laughing, cause I had five rods and all the kit to fish them in a backpack when we met)
Just think through what gear you need rather than what gear you'd like. If you're starting off somewhere like Goa, drop me a line. Think about rods - travel rods are good 'cause unless you're going hi-lux, two piece rods in a travel case are a pain in the bum.
Personally, I wouldn't go the uptider route that everyone seems to recomend, heavy spinning rods are the way to go and will cope with most bait fishing senarios.

Remember, it's a big country mate and if you have six months you can cover a lot but there's no point in starting out in the north and heading south if you're arriving in Feb 08. The north will still be frijid in February and that's no fun.

Also, don't ignore the saltwater. Barramundi are great fish (do a search on here and on anglersnet.co.uk) and if you're a lure nut, you'll love them.

As to locations. Do an internet search for "mahseer angling in india". You can do it independently, but you have to be very lucky (like I was) and then you get sworn to secrecy (like I am) about locations. I do know of one place where there are mahseer that I can tell you about but I honestly don't know if I was fishing it legally and as far as I know, the fish don't get very big - 3 or 4lbs. PM me for details.

Essoxx, please introduce yourself in the introduction section so that you can have more members answering you.

As for locations around Thana / Mumbai, there are few good ones and one in particular is a heaven for float fishing.

Santosh

Lots of locations around Thane, since you will here for couple of months you can land some mahseer too. And if Ali bhai takes you to Powai then Game On!!!!!!

You will need 50lb braid for salt water rock fishing and trolling, for fresh water 40lb will be too much to cast spoons... Bops what do you think???

Actually, on my last trip, I started using the lighter of my two spinning rods for the barra fishing and found that the combination of having a softer rod and slackening off the reels clutch as soon as I hooked up was resulting in a lot less fish throwing the hooks.
