Hello to all fellow anglers,

I am 27yrs old, male, fun loving, relatively hassle free and enjpy a laugh and good company.

to let everyone on this forum know that i feel a huge sense of camaraderie , because i am absolutely nutters about angling. I grew up around Assam and Arunachal Pradesh and was therefore introduced to this sport pretty early on in life, but not using the modern day reel and fibre rods, but rather with an simple bamboo rod !!!! of course as the years progressed and i moved out of Assam and moved to Delhi, the opportunities and hence the chances of improving my angling skills dwindled.

I am howeber, recently back from a trip to Assam, during which i hooked my first mahseer in the Jia Bhoroli River and have come to realise that i am absolutely hooked to this sport ( me typing out this intro at 5 a.m i think is proof of this !!!!). So i now hope to be regular fishing trips in and around Delhi on the weekends and trips to other parts of the country when the time permits. Of course besides the fishing, i also hope to get you know some cool people in this city.

I hope to hear from some of you and looking forward to a round of drinks and fishing lore !! : :-)

Hi Vikram,

Welcome to IA. See, another masmoria pagaal from Ghy responding your 'mayday' call at 6.15 AM. By your title it seems you are from Assam.

You will find a lot of avid anglers from Delhi. PM mahseerken and his gang about your querries and all your problems will be solved.

Cheers,
Apoo

Thanks a ton Apoo... that was a quick "masmoria paagal" reply indeed.. hehehe !!! Yes you are right i am from Assam, grew up for a while in Margherita, spent a few holidays from boarding school in Dibrugarh and since folks have now retired and moved to Guwahati, i would say my parental home is now there. As u will notice from my introductory post, have just returned from a great trip to the Jia Bhoroli at Nameri and had the most amazing time. It was a pain to get the angling permit though, because one either has to be a foreigner or be a member of the Assam Bhoreli Anglers and Consevation Association. I am now in the midst of attempting to get membership into the latter.

Anyway, i do hope our paths cross soon enough. Thanks once again for the response.

Vikram

hahaha... but it seriously is a place in upper assam and come to think of it.. maybe you have unwittingly pointed me to the direction of the origins of the great association that i have enjoyed with "Alchohol" !!!!!

Coincidentally I'm another Assamese (Gauripur) who grew up in Delhi (DPS R K Puram and DU) and mad about angling though hardly get time for the sport these days even though I'm working in areas with loads of trout and mahseer in Kerala. Thats life hic!!
Welcome and keep posting masmoria.
