Hey mate,

I know this eel (freshwater). It locally known as "Kaadi" in my native place. Very very tasty fish. Clean them is a pain but you need to use ash to clean this fish as they are very slippery. Theres a better way of catching these fish. use a 10 hook with a 4 lb line. Use fresh shrimps from that very place, the small shrimps hide in rocks or murk waters. You may use either a landing net with fine holes or perhaps a sack bag. Use these tiny shrimps on the hook from rear end and the most important is find a long grass straw of perhaps a meter long. push the hook on te top end of the straw along with the shrimp on it whilst holding the line. Then find the possible holes and shove the straw right in there. It theres an eel out there it is sure to bite the bait. Stike and pull out else you are sure to get snagged as these burgers run under the rocks and cut your line off.

EDITED: This one is tire track eel

Teritex your reply brought a smile to my face because what you suggest is very simmilar to the "Sniggling" discussed by Isaak Walton in his book "The complete angler" - first published in 1653.....

"I shall therefore conclude this direction for taking the Eel, by telling
you, that in a warm day in summer, I have taken many a good Eel by
Snigling, and have been much pleased with that sport.

And because you, that are but a young angler, know not what Snigling
is I will now teach it to you. You remember I told you that Eels do not
usually stir in the daytime; for then they hide themselves under some
covert; or under boards or planks about flood-gates, or weirs, or mills:
or in holes on the river banks: so that you, observing your time in a
warm day, when the water is lowest, may take a strong small hook, tied
to a strong line, or to a string about a yard long; and then into one of
these holes, or between any boards about a mill, or under any great
stone or plank, or any place where you think an Eel may hide or shelter
herself, you may, with the help of a short stick, put in y our bait, but
leisurely, and as far as you may conveniently; and it is scarce to be
doubted, but if there be an Eel within the sight of it, the Eel will bite
instantly, and as certainly gorge it; and you need not doubt to have him
if you pull him not out of the hole too quickly, but pull him out by
degrees; for he, lying folded double in his hole, will, with the help of
his tail, break all, unless you give him time to be wearied with pulling,
and so get him out by degrees, not pulling too hard."

Hello Ken,

Thanks very much indeed for reproducing a paragraph from Walton's book. His unique style of writing takes one back in 17th Century. Very interesting reading. Is this book available nowadays?

I have not seen your reports on I.A. for a long time. Are you hibernating?

Warm Regards,

Arun :wink:
