Living overseas, I'm not familiar with Indian protocol as regards permits, licences etc.

Here in the U.K. we need to buy a national licence, you can't fish anywhere without it. On top of that you need to seek permission of the owner of the water. This could be a fishing club which you could become a member of, or a private individual who might charge you a daily rate to allow you to fish.

How does this compare with India?

Cheers
Ric

Dont need one for Saltwater, but you would need some permit of sorts for fresh water in certain places. I am sure someone will inform you in more detail.

Ric,
There are no national fishing licenses out here. We don't even have a national angling association :lol:
Most rivers or stretches of rivers with potential, are controllled by local bodies from whom you need to acquire a permit to fish.
The trick is that sometimes the place that you can obtain the premit from is a hundred miles away from the place you want to fish, so make thorough enquiries to save time and bother.
Some of the lakes are out on contract for fish harvesting, and permission to fish can be sought from the local contractor (with some bucks of course :lol: ), but most of these lakes are not really worth fishing if you are after specimine fish. The fish are mostly harvested within a year of being introduced into these waters.
The potential therefore comes from waters where there is no netting allowed, and finding them will take a bit of researching.
If you have some places in mind, guys from the forum can help you with more details.
One such water is the Wasi lakes which are about 130KM from Bangalore.
Hope this is of help.
Regards
Owen

OMO and others, When at the Nilgiris-please get a fishing licence from the Dept of fisheries, when at Kadai, get a licence from the dept of fisheries, the hotel will help you. When in Manali get a fishing licence from the dept of fisheries. This is an important licence, for your safety. Ok, you mention abt local water bodies which are leased out to private bodies. You have to approach them.

Talk about licenses. Jude's wife now has a license to kill :evil:
I sent him a list of things that he will need for the trip, and right at the end of the list i added "2 Blond Bombshells".
Darn nut shows it to his wife without reading it and asks her to pack things for him and keep it ready for his return from Chandhigarh.
I had a panic call from him yesterday, seems he was pronged. :lol: :lol: :lol:
He got no sympathy from me :twisted:

I think the best permit to flash around is a US $100 bill. 10's will work also, but not so effectively.

HinAndy,


Not all the places needs to be paid $100. So if we all start paying them bribes, The scene will become different.

Later the poachers will also start paying bribes and we will be left with the water only. We should not encourage it.

Cheers,
Apoo

Hi Guys,

the trip was a li'l jinxed ... :(

Our siarra brokedown at the entrance of Sangam,at around 0900am.Just 10kms away from Galibore. :x

By fortune, we met Naren and Sid, who were a great help .
They have a farm at the Sangam entrance.
They even offered to drop us .. Gracias Guys !!!

Luckily the JLR jeep came by and could take Owen and Gavin till croc rocks.

I took off looking for a mechanic from Kpura 38kms away.
By the time I got the siarra fixed( right wheel wing bracket broke) it was 1100pm night in Kpura. A long and slow drive back and I got to camp by 1215pm. :cry: :cry:

Fishing was not too good either with both these guys catching a small lot of tilapia,catfish and a 1gm Mahseer.
I wonder whether to post.
It could a new record for smallest ever caught :lol:
Will give a cd of all pics to Owen tmrw . Let him decide.

I didn't catch anything !!! Not even a cold :!:

By now I've patched up the holes the wife made...

But the blondes were good fun..

Checkout the view on this one.. :twisted: :twisted:

Image

But the next trip gonna be great !!! :roll: :roll:

Owen ....You there ??? Can you hear me ???

Jude

Talk about jinxed :cry:

We camped at croc rocks and were greeted by a sad looking Bola who had been flooging this spot for a week with a bong gentleman for the last week without success.

The heat was so bad that we could not fish past 10am and before 5 pm.
There were some very big fish working out at the gym near the other bank and they gave us sleepless afternoons, but as hard as we tried, they would have nothing to do with our offerings.

I had hoped that the rains we had the week before would bring fresh water into the river, but evidently the rain wasn't enough. There was little or no water in the rapids, and people had been flogging croc rocks continously. Probably scared the fish into "keep your mouth shut " posture.
Even tried a little rain dance to liven things up.

We did get a few small mahseer at night, and a few cats that made it to the pot. The tilapia however were very obliging and made no fuss at all.

The elephants, some big langur and deer on the far bank kept out of sight but let us know of their presence. A big croc took to cruising the deep pool in front of us twice a day, and even gave the bathing buffaloes the eye, but i guess it was just too hot for anyone to stir up trouble, so the afternoon burned on while we keept an eye on everything.

Well Jude kept an eye on everything i should say.

We did get a few good pix, and one that i am waiting to get developed, is that of the "Dhoombi". It is a black bee not unlike a bumble bee, and i was finally able to photograph it sitting on a bush with its wings outstretched.

There is a story attached to this bee, and those who have read "Somewhere down the crazy river" will recall Bola relating how this bee while in the throes of mating, would often fall into the river only to be gobbled up by a hungry mahseer. The mahseer would be very dead in a short while, as this bee worked its way out of its flesh through a hole that it made, and away into the sky it would fly to freedom.
Such are the ways of the wild.

The trip had its moments especially late at night, when i could hear Jude and his friend Gavin whispering " Hey! we are sleeping just 5 feet from the water, what if that croc were to come up and grab our legs and pull us in"
Noooo maaan! says Jude the slope is too steep for the croc to climb. Shortly after that i heard them rustling around and shifting their sleeping bags behind me, ensuring that i was between them and the water.

Hi Axx,

Just happened that we slogged in the sun for 2 days and no good fish pics to post ...

Owen was mentioning that your Dad is a doctor and based in Blr .
Technically(medically ??) that makes you a banger too :D

So when do we see this new baitrunner in action ???
