So guys after eating lot from your heads. I've at last decided my Murrel (May use it for rohu and catfish also :mrgreen:) setup. Which is well in my petite budget and I am still left with some $7.56 so please go ahead and add something that you think is not there and I may need. I haven’t added any snaps, I wasn’t sure after reading Akshay’s views regarding them :oops:


Shakespeare Ugly Stik Spinning Rods – 7' Medium rating
MODEL: SPL110070 $27.99

Shimano Symetre® Spinning Reels (2500 was for same price and i believe in overdoing it rather then under :mrgreen:)
MODEL: SY4000RI $79.99

Berkley Trilene Big Game Fishing Line - 1/4-Lb. Spool
COLOR: CLEAR TEST: 10# $6.49

Berkley Trilene Big Game Fishing Line - 1/4-Lb. Spool
COLOR: CLEAR TEST: 12# $6.49

Berkley Trilene Big Game Fishing Line - 1/4-Lb. Spool (This is for leader)
COLOR: CLEAR TEST: 20# $6.49

Mepps Plain Aglia® Spinners
COLOR: SILVER SIZE: 3 Quantity= 3 $7.47

Mepps Plain Aglia® Spinners
COLOR: SILVER SIZE: 4 Quantity= 3 $5.98

Mepps Plain Aglia® Spinners
COLOR: SILVER SIZE: 5 Quantity= 3 $5.98

Herter's 20-Pocket Fly-Fishing Vest
COLOR: MUSHROOM SIZE: MEDIUM $19.95 --- (Can be deleted if something else need to be added)

Cabela’s black live bait swivels (Not sure about size)
Size= 1 Quantity 3 packs $9.87

$179.69+ Shipping $12.75 = $192.44

Now I just need someone to carry it from US :mrgreen: :mrgreen:. Ufffff its too hard being a poor techie.. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Inder

PS: I've started a new thread thinking it may help some newbie on a budget. If mods think otherwise then I will delete this post and add it to old thread :)

Hey Inder,

My suggestions.

If you are ordering 10lb mono there's no use ordering another spool in 12lb

Instead of ordering 20lb mono as the leader order some 30 lb suffix fluorocarbon line. It's invisible in water and very abrasion resistant.

I would rather order some snap swivels than the live bait ones. The problem with the snap opening up can be remedied by pressing down on the clip with a plier.

Cancel the fly vest and get a Plano box and a waist pouch instead.

Bops

Hi Inder,

I haven’t added any snaps, I wasn’t sure after reading Akshay’s views regarding them

:D I still am not fond of snaps but there seem to be a lot of people who don't have a problem with them. It might make sense to order a packet and see what works best for you.

Like Bopanna said you could lose the vest and add a Plano box and a waist pouch instead.
It gets quite irritating when one's walking around and things are rattling in various pockets. I'd suggest a couple of small boxes (you can get them at Richard square, Russel market or any dept store)... much cheaper. I buy them from Old Poor House road.

Another thing... as a rule we carry too much with us while we're out fishing. Most of us have a tendency to throw things into our tackle boxes before we leave and never use them. I now carry 5 to 6 spinners, half a dozen swivels, a couple of feet of 40 mono and a pair of nose pliers.

Let me know once you have the stuff and we'll get you into a couple of big murral ASAP..... now that's a promise.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Cheeky little sod! Once is what I promised. If I catch you bumming a trip after that you can kiss your tackle goodbye.

Save up or pay JLR's rates. :twisted:

Personally, even a 2500 is a bit too heavy for certain limp wristed techies. :mrgreen:

Scratch the 10 and get another 12 or 15 lbs. spool.

This should suffice for all the Bangalore boys. Most thoughtful of you.

Keep the vest, get the Plano box (3700 or 4700 series) and buy the bum bag in Bangalore.

Lose the vest, lose the planos, buy boxes locally 10 to 50 bucks a box. Lose the bum bag.... you could get Rustam to carry the boxes for you!

I'm pretty sure I have told him about doing the cooking, serving hot cups of brew at hourly intervals, doing the dishes, turning down the sleeping bags and so forth.

Just in case I hadn't, he now knows what he is in for. :mrgreen:

Well done Rustam.... No I can't wait to go out with you guys...... I think a 1/2 kilo murral should be good for starters. :P Or does the size of fish depend on his cooking skills? :lol: :mrgreen: :D

Inder, one thing that will help is a pair of Polaroid glasses - either from the U.S. or right here in Bangalore. Have no idea what they cost here, so you will need to do a quick price check. Don't buy from the U.S. if the difference is marginal.

Vest is already gone, I need that Rode tube also, $13 inclusion :(, and regarding those Plano boxes, from the pics they somewhat look like the boxes where my mum keep her stitching reels.

Inder, That 130 bucks was in US dollars, not rupees.be warned.
If I can join you guys on Inder's first foray with new equipment, might truly add meaning to 'maniac murrel '
Enjoy and Good Luck
