Hi

My name is Siddharth and I’m from Bombay. I’m a complete newbie to angling although I have been a keen aquatic hobbyist for many years now. I’m a member of forums like M.A.S (Maharashtra aquarist society) and I.A.H (Indian aquarium hobbyist). From time to time we go for our own fishing trips though they’re of a different nature (we call them collection trips). We use nets instead of fishing rods and the catch usually comes home with us, alive of course. I have a couple of tanks in my house one of which is a marine tank. I’ve always wanted to learn how to angle and would love to tag along for any trips.

Regards Sid.

Howdy mate! Welcome aboard. I am sure you be of great help identifying fish (minnows) and telling us about their predatory perils.

In return I am sure the Bombay Blokes will get you going.

Welcome to IA hunchback :lol: :lol:, like that :lol:

Good to have another aquarium buff here, I used to have a marine reef tank, even had a Majestic Angel with the corrals, had posted pictures under general topics, unfortunately I lost the whole tank when I was on holiday and there was a power shortage, where my chiller was off for about 3 hours.

There are a few of us here, Fredfish has got some good arowana in Bombay and Sanjay 55 keeps marine fish among several freshwater fish.

Hi Sid,

welcome to IA.

Just to let you know that it would be quite risky if you take to angling. At times it could be quite frustrating & at those moments, I would pity the fish in your tank. :lol:
