Hi Guys,

I am planning to buy some tackle from US. Due to some financial constraints I can't spend much on equipments right now. So can you experienced guys suggest some general purpose tackle which can be used for Murrel as well as Rohu, Catla, Trout and Catfish (If that is possible in first place) coz I plan to fish in Karnataka, Haryana and Himachal. I want something which should be good enough to survive for 4-5 years in hands of a newbie like me :).

Rustam already suggested some things and I don't doubt his suggestions a bit but still I just wanted to take some more opinions :mrgreen:

Right now my shopping list contains this, Is it good enough or I need something else/more. Please suggest.

1. Shimano Symetre®/Cabela's Tourney Trail™ Spinning Combo

You can see it . I am thinking of getting 4000RI reel and 7' Medium action rod.

2. Mepps Agila spinners no 3,4,5 (I need suggestions here which one to go for dressed or plains).
3.Berkley Trilene Big Game 10-12lbs (Any one wanna suggest any thing better)
4.Rustam also suggested some spinners but i lost the list :oops: :cry:

Please suggest if I need something else, I am a complete stranger to angling so please excuse me for my silly questions and here is the tough part my budget is only $200.

With Best Regards,
Inderjeet Singh

PS: I've been told that though Trout is caught mainly using fly fishing technique but spinning tackle can also be used.

Hi,

The combo looks pretty decent for the fish you mentioned you wanted to catch. However you'll have to drop trout from your list. For trout you'll need a much lighter setup 4lb to 8lb line and 00,0 and 1 size mepps.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Hi Inder,

The setup you mentioned is good, however I would be happier with a size 2000 or 2500 reel for the type of fishing you mentioned. Any decrease in the combined weight of the rod and reel will reduce strain on the wrist and arm and allow you to cast effortlessly all day.

I use 10lb powerpro braid with a mono leader for most of my fishing since the braid gives instant feedback and hook ups. The lower diameter of the braid also allows casting much farther than monofilament of the same breaking strain.

Cheers
IA

Thanks Marlin and Bops,

Rustam also advised me for a lighter reel but don't know why i can't get "Bigger the better" thing from my mind :mrgreen: :mrgreen: and with a broken right hand wrist i need to think again. I am thinking of getting some extra line so please suggest and something on swivels. Please suggest with make and model numbers.

Inder

Hi,
If I may interject here I would advise you to get a 6'6" Cabelas Microlite rod, ML ($39 but often on sale for $29) and P-Line Premium 12lb. I used it a few years ago and it was quite good for the money. I don't know what your budget is but I have spent thousands in trial-and-error over the years in arriving at my set-up for maral and therefore can give you the benefit of my experience. I'm afraid the Ugly Stik is quite heavy and a bit crude, IMHO. The sensitivity and ruggedness of the Microlite will surprise you. Microlite does not mean delicate.
Good luck,
Mm

Jeff,

There obviously seem to be many schools of thought on this subject. I have been using a Medium power rod without much problem, whilst the chap I usually go out with prefers his MH power Ugly Stik because it makes casting more accurate and helps in heavy weeds. Since he has been fishing far longer than me I defered to his experience.

What is your present Murral set up - rod, reel and line?

Rustam

That's going to take a lot of air (all the way to Cal) but considering the number of anglers on here we should have enough hot air to spare. :mrgreen:

Rustam,
If you see me fishing with a $200 rod, I'll come to Bangalore, get you a 30-06 and you can shoot me.
Mm

Rustam,

Now that you're in the business of letting daylight through forum members with assorted weapons I'll tell you a little related anecdote:

A friend told my brother a year ago that if he ever spent $200K on a car that I had recommended, for my brother to kick him where the sun don't shine. Now, after a year of gleeful driving, he sold my brother the car and is looking at a $700K vehicle. Moral of the story is: what may initially seem "wasteful" spending turns out to be an education that opens up heretofore unknown vistas. I guarantee you that on your last day on earth you're not going to say "thank God I didn't buy that Megabass".

Modern life has disconnected us from our primal pleasures, and since life is a near-death experience, we ought to do all we can to enjoy it. Let those with a critical nature let their minds run in tiny aghast circles of condemnation. Fun is, and always will be, irresponsible frivolity. Also, take Evelyn Waughs advice and never, never, let a lack of money get in the way. I didn't.

Airgun? You can have both my Beemans. Buy the Megabass. And the Stella. You'll thank me later.

Mm

Tell me, Mm, are you a used car salesman? You sure as hell are persuasive. :mrgreen:

First things first. Marc's found me a delicious little shotty (what's the bet I get a call from Bops as soon as he reads this? :mrgreen: ) and that get's first priority. In other words, no more expensive toys for a year or two.

Money aside, would an oik like me truly appreciate something like that or even know the difference? :roll:

What's a toff like you playing with Beemans? Get yourself a Gary Barnes lickety-spit old chap!

Thanks for the offer but I'd rather have the '06. ;) :mrgreen:

Rustam

Rustam, that gallant duster sacrificed a fair portion of its size to help me with my first bucktail on a 4 treble.
Couple of ouches, a fair bit of clear nail polish as 'dope' on the surgical silk being used for the 'tie'and voila!!??
What's been your experience on a 'bucktail'?
If you're having a dull day, I'll show you my version of a scum fish-if you promise not to get a hernia laughing.

If God can take me to it, he'll take me through it (the work meetings :wink: :wink: )
For the skirt-rubber 'solshun' saar! what d 'ell, lets give it a whirl? will reinforce with surgical silk-lets hope the rubber cement wont chew through the rubber?? :oops:

I hit the monitor between 'Work" which i wish is what i did between fishing trips...new convert, excuse the bravado.

Bops-thanks for the advice-will trim.Wondering how the fibers will behave after a wetting .will there be any resemblance to a live creature or will they be a soggy, droopy mass? :evil: Got yellow and red so far, dont want it to look like Holi is early this year :wink: Will do the wetting test and post...
Been home brewing for many years now-courtesy ham radio-I run by vu2xtc -and guess cant kick old habits? this seems to be a great hobby to home brew? never mind if the critters dont bite :roll:
Will check out the cabela's no sweat-but if I find the rubber strings, guess what I'm doing on this hot sat night??!! :P

Best

Thanks for the info and advice Senor MM.
Rustam, before you change your load from bear to squirrel, want to try the bristles from a paintbrush-a 4 or 6" , el cheapo brand?
2 options either keep original bristles or paint em(dip tufts in el cheapo enamel )red yellow and green :twisted:
Wonder how the paint smell will influence the fish? :roll:
Will make one soon and instead of snaps, will send one down to you for a trial in your next outing.If it works, give me cabela's add! [smilie=blush.gif]

Couple of points:

1. When dressing the hook, the head has to be not only stiff but hard (supressing giggles). Yes, a dirty mind as a result of that evil Hyderabad influence.
2. The opposite is true of the skirt. Soft, soft, soft. Paint brush bristles just won't do. And painting them will make them into spikes that no self-respecting maral will touch.

You know what, I should be dispensing dysinformation so I'll have more marals to catch :!: Please ignore all previous advice (if you haven't already).

Mm
