Hi All,
I am planning to come back to hyderabad. I have fished a couple of times in midwest where I went to school. It was spincasting I believe. I would like to take up to sport of angling and spin casting.

I request senior members to help me with any equipment advice.

Jon

Hey guys !
Thanks for laying out the welcome mat ! I am still in the states . I am planning on buying a daiwa minispin system. I think I will buy the tackle for mahseer in a few more months when I have a little more money.
You guys are the best !

Rajat,
Can you show me the links. I searched for the terms. some of the rods were sold out. It looks like you are recommending a 14-30 lb line. Am I right ?

Bro

If you get a braided line of strength 30lb or 40 lb you are home. I am suggesting the braid because you would get much more line in the reel then monofilament the braided line are also called superlines.

I hope this will finally help

Hi Rajat,
Thanks for that very clear explanation. Are you sure about the braided line ? I read somewhere that braided line gets abraded on the river rocks (maybe for mahseer fishing) and breaks without warning. Mono is stronger and it is more abrasion resistant.

Thanks for the awesome tips !

Bro
Every thing depends on what you want to catch . I have seen some hard core Mahseer angler swear by braided line . Yes you are right that the rocks do present a clear and present danger but believe me if the fish specially mahseer wants to cut you off the rock you will get cut braid or mono
The trick is to not to let the fish take you to the rocks or in case it has get into a position to fight it correctly
In terms of stronger i think braid is more stronger and much smaller in the diameter the only thing is, it does not stretch so you will have t be care full with your drag .
I suggested braid to you because you going to have only one reel in the beginning and although it is an excellent reel it is not a big one in terms of capacity. With braid you can cover all kind of application plus you can have almost two and half time more line on your reel (almost all the reels give you mono calculation for capacity so your 240 yard 12 LB can actually be 300 yard 30lb) or more lb strength of the same capacity. But you can always go for a good Mono.
cheers
