Well said I should have put it that way :p

I remember this thing that I read on the internet, one of the lady desperately wants to read a suspense novel, so she goes to the library and borrows this novel, when she opens the book and whist on the page that introduces the characters some had written "He is the murderer"

LOL

Just saw the entire film What a fight mate. I loved the way Ali admonishes you for wanting to touch the reel when the monster was running.

Cheers to Babloobhai. Fantastic camera work there.
Cheers to Alibhai. The director and action coordinator of this epic film.

And the biggest round of applause for Santosh. Well done mate. This is one for the fireplace when your grandchildren come and pester you for stories.

Thanks everyone.. you are right M'ken, when Ali is around he wont let me palm the reel.. :lol: :lol: .. But I did cheat him .. if you watch the video again, you will see me increasing the drag when he was not looking at me.. the salty fisherman within gets in active mode when the fish goes for a run :twisted:

Thanks Mr. Sydney.

I and Ali have been fishing together for a long time now, he is pretty good in predicting what i might do next :lol:

All three of us were enjoying the fight. That is what fishing is, enjoy the experience and not get tied down by expectation or unrealistic desire of landing the biggest fish every time you go fishing. Whenever i am at Powai, i carry two rods, a med-heavy setup and another a very light setup (5lb or 10 lb). If the big ones don’t bite, I bring out my light tackle and enjoy small mrigals, tilapia and small carps or no fish at times.

Santosh

Hi Santosh,
Cool fish, cool fight and to top it.........a cool angler in you.
I have seen guys yanking out a 20 kg fish within minutes with 60lb braid, max drag.........and so on.
But this is angling.I loved the video. I am really impressed.
What was the line strength you used?

this is my first katla of 2 KG after loosing 3 biggies due to lack of technique in landing. well i have a very bad experience in tackling this particular fish. everytime i hooked this fish, it takes to the ground and after a short run it takes a cover into the weed and free itself through it ( since we have a lot of weed in futala lake nagpur). i don't know what to do in this situtation)

Place: futala lake nagpur
hook bait: rice bran with maida dough
setup: bait casting with 2 hooks attached
Line: 30 MM
rod: telescopic berkley
reel: bong reel karmakar bro. calcutta made(very reliable)

Manish

20 LB braid.. with size 6 hook. Carp fishing is lot different than saltwater fishing.

Carp fishing is an art. No ways you can yank a big catla.

Santy,
i was seeing the fight through the camera. After seeing the video i must say that you have done something extraordinary. i have seen people hooking 10 ,12 kg katla hybrid or rohu opening there boat going after fish sometime able or sometime not able to take out the fish.The way you fought the fish and the way Ali bhai guided the whole fight was something extraordinary.Hats off to ali bhai , he has change the way as well as thinking of my fishing .
Tight lines, hope i will get somemore chances to make another improved video.

Bablu Bhai,

I like it when Ali Bhai goes with the landing net and is ready to get the fish but then it makes a run and then Ali is back with his hands on his cheek LOL. Good patience shown chief.

Tatoos father watched the complete video with lot of interest till the last part when the fish was released. He was disappointed that such a fish was released. Like a true angler Tatoo tried and explained that the fish was released so as it will grow up to 40 Kg. and then it will be caught again. "Who will wait till then" was the angry outburst from his father. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

(Sorry buddy, could not resist) :wink:

Regards,

Ali. :lol:

Sure Fredd,

In case I am not there, my rod is inside the cupboard . Cut the feeder from it and use that. That one is totally balanced.
