:?: :?: I thought it was one team :?



And I thought that it was the individual performance ....anyone remember COMPETITION ???

Anyway, Rajat aka Partner, I dont care if its one report or one hundred reports...its info that we want, the more reports, the more pics, in bits & parts helps me paint a vivid pic in my mind of all the fun you guys were having......

Btw, I'm still wondering who tipped of the fish that the mumbai leg of IA was coming there for a competition.....guess they all buggered off well in advance. Next time, plan only 1 or 2 days in advance...this way the fish wont be able to get too far away :lol:

keyur sorry mate i don't agree with you about the hundred reports and I don't see this forum for info only.I think it is little more then that
The competition was a great success as we all worked as team if it was individual then no body would have helped any one about any thin which we all did in every possible way, with Abhi literally showing as guide some prime spots to all which no one would have known other wise . People who did not know each other shared tackle and info and tactics about how to land a big one. So although it was a competition but i think it was a one team spirit behind it that's the reason of my comments cheers

Hi guys, Congratulations to all of you to make the trip successful !

Although I couldnt be there, I was on my toes & eager to hear any & all the news possible about the trip. You surely had a blast. Wish I was there. Hopefully next time. The pics speak for themselves & ultimately it comes down to having a good time & enjoying yourself.


HI Rajat, aka Partner,


sorry you didnt catch on to what I was trying to say........I'll make it really simple. :lol:

Since I knew that all of you had a blast, I was just looking for some news, update (like many others here) :? . I was not referring to team spirit, or friendship. So it doesnt really matter if you agree with me or no. :roll: Its about feeding our hungry mouths with information/news about the trip.
Now, if each one of you who went on this trip added their own experience & thoughts, wouldnt this forum be a bit richer ? 8)

Sigh !

Hi Santosh,

Super report & even better pics. Will be remembered for a long time to come. The camaraderie, advice & unstinted support for the "Bacchas of Angling" was mind boggling. Rock ON.

First of all, congratulation to every one who participated in this competition. It was a grand success, not only in term of fishes landed, but how many of us met for the first time and walked away becoming great friends. In totality the assembly was nothing less than an extraordinary league of gentlemen. The eagerness of every one in extending a helping hand to others was exemplary in it self. Congratulation also to Neil and Abhijeet for winning the first ever competition in salt water category but I am sure that all of us, who participated walked away, in the end, as winner in term of sheer joy of the extraordinary company and great fishing we had.

I would like to extend my special thanks to Boppanna for providing us opportunities through INDIAN ANGLER and all of the members, who have made this forum a great success. Long live our community.

I would also like to thank Santosh (Our RCO) for making this trip a great success.

Let’s take such kind of events to another level and organize our fresh water competition on same day throughout India as well as any Pakistan. I know it is difficult in term of organizing hassles but if all of us can put our heart to it, it can be done.

Regards,

Ali.

Finally! Guys's I'm really sorry for not having posted earlier but I've managed to crawl out of bed only today after a five day long attack of influenza. I'm still running a temperature but just had to login and see what became of the competition.

Thanks to all of you for making the competition a resounding success! It looks like all of you had a great time and came back safe!

I will prepare and send out a letter of appreciation for each of the attendees from IndianAngler.com as soon as i'm back on my feet.

Cheers
Bopanna

Hi Fellow Anglers,

Here are some more pics taken by me of All India Saltwater Meet at Harihareshwar.

Your attention is especially called to "The One that Got Away"! The Barra caught by Neil, which subsequently managed to give him a slip by freeing itself from the rope that was supposed to secure it through Gills in a natural pool in the rocks.

Few of the Anglers tried to catch it from the Pool but without success. You would see the picture of those buddies looking down with all their concentration inside the Pool.

The Baramundi would be looking forward to Highest Tide which would take it to the Sea once again! javascript:emoticon(':D')

With Warm Regards,

Arun :D :D :D
