I'm a college student and fly fishing guide in Washington state. I'll be traveling to India this summer to do some volunteer work. I'll be in the Sivagangai district of Tamil Nadu. If any one could point me in the right dirrection as to where and what to fish that would be great. I have 5wt,7wt, and 7wt spey and am not sure what I want to bring with me.

Hi J c Squad,

The fishing you can do is saltater fishing. The coast would be about 70 to 80 km from Shivagangai. Nov to feb is considred good for barramundi, Snappers, trevally. Excact location would be Town called Tondi . There is a lot of netting in these areas. Google tondi and look around for likely spots 8 to 10 wt is what you should bring if you want to only fly fish.

hey thanks for the kind words everyone. I've been in India now for three weeks and will be leaving in three weeks. I'm living in Karaikudi and have been to Chennai, Madurai, and Sivakasi. I didn't end up bringing any of my fishing gear with me :( but its ok i dont think i have the time to fish. I am going to Kovalam, Kodaikanal, and kannyakumari over the next few weekends. If anyone lives near their and wants to take me fishing Id love it :D

Jergens,
We could've caught up for a bit of fishing when you were in Chennai. Hopefully you'll get to go fishing when you're at Kovalam, Kanyakumari and Kodaikanal. That's a bit away for us at Chennai. If you get a chance to drop in to Pondicherry sometime give me a call and we could catch up there for a bit of fishing and some beers. Pondicherry is just about 140 klicks from us and I'm happy to ride up. I dont have any fly fishing tackle but if you want to try some spinning or boat fishing I'll carry some extra tackle for you.
Cheers
Koshy

Wingz it is against the rules to post your number on the forum. Use PM if you wish.
