Thanks all. I look forward to the angling at Jhansi, and hope that other than the tank/lake fishing, which I have heard about from many sources, I manage to find myself amongst some Mahseer on the Betwa. However, there unfortunately doesn't seem to be much scope for any like-minded company at Jhansi.
I otherwise belong to Delhi. and come down here on leave, as my family is based here due to kids' education etc. Am incidentally down here for a short spell of leave right now ( hence the flurry of posts from me over the last few days- I had been very busy of late, and suddenly have a surfeit of spare time). Did a lot of angling around here since my younger days, at Okhla, Bhatkal, Surajkund etc, but it's been a long while since these places have ceased to be of even the least interest to anglers, for reasons already amplified in posts by various Delhi members. Tried a lake at Bhosari (off the Gurgaon - Sohna road), 4-5 years back with a local angler I came across, but the water level was pretty low and the lake seemed fished out with nets (a small mulley landed, and not even another bite between the two of us over the entire day). Haven't been very active on the angling front otherwise during my Delhi trips for quite some time for various reasons, (though I have manged to do a lot of catching up on the fishing, after a reasonably long hiatus, during my recently concluded Hyderabad tenure).
I have serious intentions of making up like crazy now for lost time. Finding the IA Forum has really been a godsend. There is an active coterie of Delhi anglers on the forum. May I request advice from Delhi based forum members on angling locations in the vicinity of Delhi, fish available, preferred bait etc ? I hope to be home on leave for longer periods between September to December, and would like to be able to do some serious angling this time around. I do understand that directly asking for specific location info regarding angling spots on the open forum may not be appreciated (ref IA Etiquette posted by IndianGypsy) but I assure all concerned that I am definitely not a fishing contractor!! If any member is willing to help out, please let me know - I will PM him for the info.
