Just yesterday I hooked my first big fish..
After a thousand casts i hooked it..I aint
sure, seemed like it hooked itself, as i wasn't
focused,and was gazing at the landscape..(dont blame
me, i took a thousand casts, no strike).. I was
using fresh Puntius(puthi) fish on 2 hooks cluster,
cast it into the current and was slowly retrieving
it in..ridiculously, i wasnt aware that the fish was
on, and was astounded to find the fish on the line,
a Mulley, around 2-3 kgs, wriggling frantically..imagine
my excitement..just as I was about to land him,
one swipe of his vicious head and..damn!! He was
gone, my first Mulley...what could hv gone wrong?
Please enlighten me on Fish landing tactics..i am
terribly disheartened..never want a re-run of
