My name is Luqman, and I am a computer engineer.
I think fish is in my blood, I walk fish, I talk fish, I eat fish, I sleep fish and I dream fish.
When I was kid I went with my family to a Water Dam near Hyderabad and make a hook out of safety pin and caught a small fish, that was really exiting. As days passed I did not had much luck but after resigining from my job in 2008 I way fullto fishing in and around hyderabad caught many Tialpias and Few Rohus.
Last year I went to my grand parent's native place in West Godawari(Andhra Pradesh) and caught giant Prawns(100-250 gms) in a freshwater pond after 12:00 am midnight, the locals used a sewing pin bent on flame attached with a normal thread and Gram Flour blend with cooked rice and earth worms as bait. I was amazed with their skill at it.
Now I am working in Qatar and went fishing couple of times, caught some Small Snappers, but nothing satisfactory so far.
I've learned as well as learning lot of things from this forum.
