Was surprised that no body from Pune posted this important News article published in Pune Times ,Pune edition of Times of India Dated 10 of December 2009. on this forum , even I was bit confused where to post /in location-trip/bait tactics / environment conservation ? Since the article is general in nature but about Pune which is in broad sense a location ..therefore reproduced below :
HOOKED TO ANGLING
Sports fishing is the new activity that is making waves in the city PT reports
By Amit Durgapal times newsnetwork

Pune is rife with activities amidst its bountiful natural surroundings . The most exciting among its back to nature pastime is angling or sport fishing .At the placid water bodies in the suburbs of the city anglers can be seen waiting patiently to hook their favorite fish something unseen previously is the interest evinced by youngsters in sports fishing .Bhima river , other smaller water bodies in the city and the bigger lakes in lonavala are heaven for anglers in pune Rohu , mirgal, catfish, catla and murrel are some of the local fishs that afford anglers a pleasant catch it was mostly Anglo Indians who indulged in angling outing earlier . But now ,the sports has won over many individuals in the city.

For someone uninitiated in the sport ,angling might seem a game of chance rather than skill .but that is not the case Col. Pratap Nair ,a veteran angler ,says the usual method of hooking a fish is handling ,which is practiced by villagers .an angler learns to use a rod and reel to hook and land a fish .The skill lies in landing the fish with lightest tackle . A pro angler has sometimes land a 15 pound fish with a 10 pound line. So it is about putting your wits against an animal which can elude you or break the line ,he adds . When an angler lands a big fish ,he moves on to try a lighter line .Thus he adds to the joy of angling.

Many have been attracted to this engaging sport pranav Waghchavare , a businessmen ,got addicted to it as a kid. Later with the help of senior anglers he learnt how to catch a fish and land it .it needs a lot of patience ,doesn’t it ? well pranav says “you don’t mind being patient when you know what you are up to .its part of the game .some time it takes a very long time to land a fish, but it’s worth the wait ‘.

Mukund Choutoy ,a standard 12 student ,learnt a lot about angling in just a year’s time .He was always fond of fishing ,and angling came naturally to him. He says ‘its not as simple as it appears to be. Hooking a fish is one thing and landing it is a Herculean task .the line one use is always weaker than the fish so, one has to be adapt at playing the fish properly.’

Aglig demands a good knowledge of fishes and their habitat. Neil Pimento ,a professional deep sea diver ,explains “one needs to read the water .every location is different .One also needs to have a good knowledge of fishes, their habitat and their eating patterns which decides the use of baits, shags and lures.” Neil was a winner of the All India Angling under the maximum catch category .The competition was held in Harihareshwar in November this year and anglers from all over the world took part in the competition

It would be unreasonable to label anglers as hunters. Sanjay Nagarkar,a passionate angler says “An angler would never want water bodies to be devoid of fishes. Some of the fisheries that have been setup to breed endangered species have been the result of anglers love for fish.” More anglers anoint the punctured wound of the fish with antibiotics and release the fish back in to water after reviving them ,he adds .besides ,angling do not to go fish sporting during the breeding season. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Angling could be your way of connecting and reaching out to nature.
(There were two beautiful colour-full photographs one of Our Mukund and other, i had seen but not recollecting, photographs are already are there on this Forum . Hi mukund if you can post those photographs?my scaner not working.)

Thanks to all the hard work put in by Pranav to ensure that Angling got an exposure in the media. While speaking to Amit Durgapal, I too had requested him to mention that we are all part of the Indian Angler group, but I believe it was edited out. The reporter had no idea about angling & I was quite apprehensive about how he would interpret our remarks. Luckily no major goof-ups except for the "Shag" part.
Regards
Cavalier

Hmmmm.... I think it will also be a very nice story for the media that a senior angler, dressed up as santa distributing fishing tackles.. :lol: :lol:

Bobby, incase i can help you to change your mind, here is the good news. The fishes are returning to your home hunt. I caught a good snapper last week from a rock where no one belived that snapper existed and last night Scott landed a 8kg Barra from the rocks. All in Mumbai man.. Our old good mumbai... :D :D :D

Come and we will go fishing :wink:

Regards,

Ali. :lol:

i came across this artical while surfing the net.. don't know who wrote it..
its on www.punesite.com

___________________________________________________________

Pune is an abuzz with abundant activities in its natural vicinity. A less-known but more exciting activity Pune is fond of nowadays is Sport Fishing. At the city’s local water bodies, you will find people angling patiently to catch their favorite fish.

The sport fishing might be unadventurous for people who have already enjoyed it, but for youngsters, who have not tested the sport before, it is most exciting and exhilarating. Places like Bhima River, lakes in Lonavala, Khandala and in the city are haven for the anglers now and are becoming a favorite spot on weekends. Among the variety of fish anglers catch are like mirgul, catfish, catla, and murrel.

What’s more, people are becoming more interested to learn the sport and enjoy the angling. Some folks are also looking fishing as a special weekend hangout activity which enables them to spend their time happily- catching fish and enjoying angling.

Fishing, for some people may seem a game of chance rather than skill, but that is not the case at all. Col Pratap, a veteran angler says “what skills one requires for fishing is handling of the hook and keeping your patience in control. If you have mastered these two things, you can be a good angler.”

The budding anglers may take a long time to brush up their fishing skills of handling rod and reel, but once learned it’s tempting and one can not stop oneself angling.
An angler can easily land a fish of 5 to 6 kgs if he/she is skilled at the handling of reel. As you go on landing a fish, you become even more cautious and full of patience as a fish may play a game with you.

“It’s a very engaging sport,” says Pranav Waghchavare, who got addicted to the sport long back. Earlier he would go with his friend, to learn how to lure the fish. Having been trained in the fishing sport, he does not need anybody to teach as he has mastered the angling skills. Angling is not a sport that takes a lot of effort to learn, but what it needs is the knowledge of fishes and their habitat. If you are looking forward to fish in deep waters of the sea, then you must read water first as every location differs, same is the case with angling.

Neil, who has won the all India Salt Water Competition held at Harihareshwar in November, says,

One needs to know the variety of fishes first and then you learn their behavioral skills such as their location, eating habits and location most of the time they stay in
This competition is held every year at the same place where anglers from all over the world participate. I think angling is becoming demanding sport and it should be introduced in all sports clubs all over the country, says Neil.

Well, we can’t say whether angling will be introduced in sports club or not but sport fishing should not be considered lesser important for its a thousand year old profession.
Angling could be a way for all human beings to reconnect and care for nature which is a need of the day today. This will also educate people of the frequently occurring changes.
