Before I start, I would like to say thanks to Santosh, Ali bhai, Lionheart, King Ralph and last but not the least to Shri Jeremy Wade and the countless anglers who have posted their videos on YouTube. You guys have been instrumental in putting me on the right path to becoming an angler.

The story………

It was 5.10 am when I dialled King Ralph’s number and waited anxiously as the number rang. Luckily he cut the call and I was sure that I had managed to wake him up. I was sure that I had disturbed him in his sleep where he was fighting the 20 feet Bara which continuously eluded him. So the early morning fishing session was on. After a lot many cricket tournaments, I had finally managed to get a Saturday Sunday off, yet our schedule was very tight. Ralphy had his meetings to attend and I had to reach the DY Stadium on time. The fish were already winning!

As we set up our bait rods and were just about getting setting up our other rods for the hunt, I had a massive run on my rod and I saw my rod actually jump out of the pipe holder and jump across the sand and trying to jump into the water. Ralphy managed to get to the rod in time and by the time I could set the hook, the fish was gone. Round 1 to the fish.
We set up another round of bait and tried our hands at learning the walk the dog retrieve. But the low tide made sure that we would lose our lures at an unaffordable rate. However, just for the kick of it, I took my ultralight rod and started using surface poppers.
Nothing happened for quite some time and it was time to head back to civilization. Then we heard the sound we have come to love the most..krrrrrrrrrrr! This time the fish was not getting away!! I set the hook and the fight was on! It turned out that the first proper fish after my catfish (which does not qualify as a proper fighting fish) was a decent size rock cod!!

Unfortunately, the fish was gut hooked and despite the best efforts of ralph and me, we could not save it. As ralph was packing up, I thought of having a last go at walking the dog. The dog incidentally tried many times to flick our bait and was promptly walked away.(refer pic).
As I cast into the area where the slow water and fast water converged, I felt a tug on the lure and I thought that I had again set the lure on the rocks. Then I said “hold on, I am using a surface popper!”. I pulled the rod back and I saw the rock move around and I was sure I had fish on!!!!(As Shri Jeremy Wade would say).

It was another rock cod and I was now a “lucky angler” as raplhy would put it. Opening on bait and lure the same day was quite a feat for me and I am very excited to now become a pakka limbu from a kaccha limbu.
As per the latest reports, the rock cod is now in the curry pot of Usha maushi (my contact in the local fish market who provides bait on free basis).

The second cod on the lure was set free and I am sure I heard it swear at me as it took off into the deep!!!
