En route to newyear party at bandipur and ooty decided to spend a day at wasi.
The morning session yielded one common carp of 500-700gm. and a huge tilapia .
It was decided we will hit water again at 4pm from the ‘MACHAN”.
Coupled with two rods ,chairs we sailed silently and setteled on the deck.
Casted both rod one by one . This was my first visit after MACHAN has been erected and I was amused by the breathtaking view . For first ten minute I was holding rod in hand and nothing happened so I rested the rod on the railing. I noticed a pull but before I could do anything it left . the next ten minutes nothing happened and when i was about to start thinking of reelin back and reloading, it again started fondling with the bait. Cautiously , slowly but swiftly I took the rod in hand put the line on my finger and striked this time when it again tried playing chicken.
Next was twenty minute of test for “ROWEN” rod, “CLIMAX” line and a desperate “ME” to end the year on a positive note which came in shape of ROHU of 5-7 kg.
The party started well before it was planned.

Dear santy,
Believe me,It was your fear of weighing things that even when guard told me it is 7kg( we did'nt weighted) i cautiously kept it in range of 5-7 kg. Such is your weighing terror on forum. :lol:
Come as and when you can, we are there to take care .
Hope to hear soon.
