Hi All

Have registred for some time now but was waiting for the right moment to jump in. Looks like you have to jump in at some time to start. So here goes...Name Carlton Seymour Age 41. Married with two daughters 9 and 11. Grew up in wonderful poona ( then ) with some fishing crabbing at katraj aundh and a few other places. It was basic handline and sometimes some crabbing and murrel shooting with an Uncle of mine who is almost on his death bed Edgar Oliver.

Now in Oman since nine years and and started out again with some basic fishing as we are blessed with a wonderful coastline. Saltwater was new for me but shore fishing mainly for whiting was fun.
Had this dream of flyfishing but did not know how to start. Met a colleague of my wife who was flyfishing in Oman and baught a second hand kit from him with a one day lesson.
A few weeks later happened to be on the beach with family and lo and behold saw a person of India origin Fly Fishing. Went upto him and we started talking. His name was lton Singh and he had just come to Oman from South Africa. He was surprised that I had a Fly Fishing kit but did not know how to flyfish. Some great lessons from him and we would go almost every weekend. Still remember the 1st fish on the fly a small HIND. Was a special experience. Eversince have been hooked on Flyfishing and am mainly shore flyfishing almost twice a week. Will send some photographs.

Sadly my South African friend of India Origin Alton Singh ahs move to Sohar around 200KMS from Muscat and we have not met for some time. We keep intouch on the phone. Have been flyfishing for almost a year now and have enjoyed every moment.

Am flying to Calicut with my two daughters tomorrow night and will be staying there untill the 18th of June will then spend 4 days in Bangalore. Would be happy to join anyone and talk to them on flyfishing. Will be bringing my kit along.

Any feedback on fishing locations in that area most welcome. Looking forward to meeting some Anglers.

Jeen...have met your friend Armand in Oman on a trip to as Madrak. Thats another strory with pictures.

All members are welcome to stay with us in Oman if and when they come. Its one of the greatest saltwater fishing destination. In fact JEEN is catching all his GT's in nothern Oman.

Have FUN keep Fishing. BOPS great site. One BIG FAMILY

Welcome to the Forum, Carlton.

I may visit Muscat next Year. I have my relatives in Muscat. I would definitely contact you before landing in Muscat and would plan Fishing trip together.

Wishing you Great Fly Fishing during your holidays in South India.

Arun
