Yesterday I went to Cherrapunji to have a look at the prospects of angling. Though I had been to the place on earlier occasions, but I didnt look around the places for a quite place to stay. As you all know this place gets the highest rainfall in the world, the pics will speak of that.

There is a resort where people can take guides for a trek or go out fishing.

Here are the pics.

On the way to Shillong. Umiam Lake.

Below the clouds lies Bangladesh. The main river for angling lies in the border.

Poor visibility on the road because of the clouds.

Don't really know if that is him coz there is another guy called terry (terrance) who makes lure in chandi.

Incidentally, the lures look very good but the quality is a bit suspect.

PS 72 hours and counting down.

There's a very funny one of Micky fishing the Kaveri.

He was with my buddy Tim, and everyone was catching something but Micky. Infact there was an 85 caught that morning besides many smaller ones.

After over an hour of waiting patiently, Micky asked Tim what the hell was happening.

Tim points out to a rock on the opposite bank, and asks him if he can see a brown ball sitting on it. "Yeah says Micky".
"Thats your ragi ball says Tim" :lol: :lol: :lol:
We all cracked up after that :twisted:

I have Chris's number 9418128383 (Himachal number). Not sure if it still works, or if he is in signal range.
I can get you Mickys number from Tim.

Don't have his number. Just met him a couple of times at Bhakra. Next time i meet him I will get it for you. I remember telling him about this site but a lot of booze had flown under his bridge so he has probably logged on to some other site.

Regarding Sukhna lake. I don't live in chandi, live in Delhi. But I have heard that the fisheries dept has opened it up after 5 to 10 years. so the fishing is supposed to be very good.

Welcome to the forum, Bok. Nice to see someone from Shillong.

Please remember one thing while posting here. Making a post in CAPITALS is the same as shouting and is considered rude.

Please do not post again in capitals.

Cheers
IA
