This is Arvind Saxena and belongs to Jabalpur city (Madhya Pradesh), but finally settled in South Bangalore. I am working in Software industry.
I am very delighted to join this group and found very good posts (organized rules). First let me explain my angling carrier. I born and bought up in Jabalpur city, this city used to call Marble city or 52 Pond (small lake) cities. I started my carrier about age of 7 and used to catch 7-8 rehu on rainy season. I still remember the old sindhi shop where I will get Fishing hook for 20 Paisa (1980-85) and 10 paisa for Peacock feather (floater). Now same shop is giving for 2-10 Rupees. I used to catch CAT fish by hand.
So overall I used to get full fishing gear within 50 buck (country one), Now I am looking for modern hook/lines and floter. I have read so many posts but not found any contacts.
I would like to know the safe places for angling around Bangalore are.
I am adding Jabalpur city wiki photo, where you people see the angling heaven around the city. City is covered with wide Narmada River and so many ponds.

Last Sunday I went to Mutathi with full family(wife/daughter) and tried my luck in angling and got one fish with limited resourse. Looks like that fish is rehu category only.
