Thanks to Chris who I met on this forum, the day before yesterday, Sunday, we (my Brother, Dad and Bro in Law) had a great day learning to fish the rod and reel way - we were ur old time bamboo-peacock feather float-and earthworm anglers till then.

The spot was great, the bites were frequent, the catch was exciting, the company great, the sport the best!

While we all learned a few tricks from Chris about not using the float sometime (u get a better cast) Dad choose the old way with the float (he claims to like fishing when he can see em bite - thru the bobble of the float)...

Left the place after 2.5 hrs with 15 rohu a bit larger than the palm of our hands! (released all tiny catches) but had to take home the rest, for our wives and mothers have been teasing the fishing rods and fishing trips that always ended with us returning with no fish! the 15 were evidence!

The spot was surrounded by small hills covered in green carpet grass, the morning had the lake covered in mist, a peacock kept calling from the opposite end, the coconut trees added to the scenic splendor while the meandering road that led us to the spot added the anxiety - what a thrill and that too 30 KM from Bangalore

Thanks Chris! and Vijay if you are reading this...next time hopefully you can join us!

PS: I have pictures and the moment I can resize them I'll post them here!
