Hi to everyone who bothers to read this.

My name is paul I live in the Uk & I am a telecoms consultant. 38yrs

Fishing mad & lucky enough to fish around the world, due to my work.
Primarily in the uk I fish for Carp (27lbs) Pike (18lbs) rivers are my main love & I love to stalk fish.
Anything that swims & puts a bend in the rod I am happy to catch.

At present I am I Denmark enjoying the seatrout trout & pike it has to offer, huge trout here, built like mike tyson, but sadly no fins to speak of & the fight like a sack of rice.

I have the chance to come to India for 6mths at the beginning of Feb 2008 & intend to fish my ass off, lake, river, sea, swimming pool, you get the idea, I am not looking for anyones secret places, I enjoy finding my own, i am pretty resorseful just any useful advice to save me a nightmare of a trip, especially end tackle advise, sizes & quantity of hooks line etc.
If anyone want to meet up on my travels u will be given a warm welcome, some of my very best friends we met on the riverbank.

Thanks for the prompt replies, its nice to be welcomed.

Kind regards

Paul

Welcome aboard, Paul. I suggest you send KenL, a personal message. He's a traveling angler and will most certainly be able to advise on this.

Where in India will you be staying during your six month visit?

A combination of three rods should serve your purpose. One uptide/11 foot heavy spinning rod, one heavy travel spinning rod and one light rod for smaller fish like murral and carp.

Cheers
Bopanna

Hey Paul - Welcome to India. And what a coincidence, even I'm in Telecom. Let us know where in India you would be coming so that you may be able to team up with appropriate people. I'm from Mumbai but currently in Hyderabad. You can email me on v_kulkarni@hotmail.com. Cheers!

You have PM.
One thing I should add is that everything you've ever read about needing uprated hooks is true. Uprate everything !

Hi Paul,
welcome to I.A.
As you are coming to Bombay the most obvious thing will be to start fishing from Powai lake. Be my guest and we can fish there for one day :lol: .

Hi Sualesh, sadly its true, ill post a pic, they have lots of put & take trout fisheries here in denmark, pay £20 and u can catch and take up to 6-8 fish, they go over 10kg, but they seem to be fed oil & protein rich diet to fatten them beyond the norm, they look freaky, I love the trout fight usually, i am off this weekend to fish a different put and take, so more pics might follow.

thanks for welcome

paul

Thats the reason. I have noticed the same in Pakistan. The farm raised trout are no challenge. They take every bait and do not put up good fight. Their cousins living in streams and lakes are too shrewd and very powerful indeed.
Nothing fascinates me more than trout fishing because here in the highlands of Pakistan, trout fishing is always connected with trekking, fabolous site seeing, grandeur of snow covered mountain peaks reaching up to 28000 ft and all. Do tell us about your trout adventures.
Cheers
Sualeh

Hello Paul,

I used to do quite a bit of pike fishing when I was studying in England. The largest I caught was about eight or nine pounds.

Contrary to what most pikers told me I used to catch alot more fish in September and October than in the middle of winter. In fact I never caught anything on lures in winter and only one on a deadbait.

I guess warmer water conditions make pike more aggressive and that in turn makes them easier to catch on lures.

Anyways, people who live near pike infested waters are exteremly lucky, the pike is probably the best fish to lure fish for in freshwater.

Like Sualeh I to love trout, but given the choice between trout fishing and piking I'd take the pike, their is a reason why trout are used as deadbaits for Essox Lucius...

Hi Paul

Welcome to the site and enjoy it.
There's lots of useful information to be found here and plenty of helpful people with lots of experience.

Good luck in India but beware that the visit is unlikely to be your last as it's addictive!
