Hello friends,
I'am Shirish from Pune and complete fresher to angling.
I have registered to IA few days back and was going through some threads which took me so long to introduce myself to IA members.
Angling came to me when my brother bought a fishing rod. Don't have any technical knowledge about the rod, but will surely get by doing some internet search on it.
Once did fishing but lost all hooks to the rocky bed.
Before trying my luck next time i would need lots of information which i'am sure will get it from IA site.
As for now, i think the fishing season would begin from September, so will make my next attempt only then.
I do want to learn all about angling and hope that i will for which i would need all you experienced member's help.
Before ending my intro would like to say that the pictures on this site are very very good and also encouraging.
Thanking You.
Regards,
Shirish.

Hi Shirish,
I tried my luck at the dam too and also fished the river passing by Paud and near the gate of MUWCI. Nothing there, next time I plan to fly fish there.

Hi Adolph,
i may have not used proper technique at angling.
i will try again as this dam has given lots of fish to many anglers.
also the river passing by Paud is a good location and would try there too.
Thank you.
Regards,
Shirish.

Hello Shirish,

Welcome to the Forum Mate! Have you tried River Pawana that crosses Mumbai- Bengalore Highway? I intend to try this spot as whenever I pass from this road from Mumbai to Pune and back on my work, I find many local fishermen fishing there.

Regards,


Arun

Hello Arun,

River Pawana is a good place.
Local fishermen catch a lot of catfish here...i guess it is called "Vaam" in marathi and are sold alive in nearby fish markets like the one in Dange Chowk.
These rivers in Pimpri-Chinchwad area are good for fishing only after the rains, while for rest of the year they are dirty, like nullahs or dried up.
Rains clean these rivers and is the only best time of the year to fish.
There are few more similar places for angling. Local's use a stick/bamboo, around 5-9 ft wire and hook.
Will let you know if ever i try my luck there.
Thank you.
Regards,
Shirish.

Welcome to IA. Actually I too am new to this forum. But I'm extremely happy to be part of this forum, as most of the members has tons of knowledge about fishing. Looks like you are also a beginner like me, but the guys here are distance clear of us. And the good thing is, they all ready to guide. By the way I'm a Punekar too, staying in Wanawrie. 8)

Hi Rockblade,
These are our struggling days in angling :wink: but not to worry because all these prof. do help and give loads of information. I'am a resident of PCMC, Akurdi.
It takes lots of time to learn and read through these forums...right now just reading these forums...will start with angling soon.
What about u?
Regards,
Shirish.

Hi Arun,
Ravet is small dam on river pawana in ravet village. Ravet Dam is near Dr. D. Y. Patil College, Akurdi Branch near Akurdi Railway station.
There is one incident attached exactly with this place. If you remember few weeks back when heavy rains slashed pune. A person was stranded in waters and then was rescued by a Helicopter in Pune. This incident was video recorded and then was telecasted on all news channels. That persons name is Vikas Jagdale.
RAVET is exactly that same location. It was funny for most of us but life threatening to that poor guy.
Local people do fish there a lot. During holiday you will find small children with no proper gear, trying their luck!!!
Please find this thread on IA: -
http://www.indianangler.com/viewtopic.php?t=2348
The day this incident happened I had purchased some hooks to try my luck right there in ravet...if i would have gone there...you would have found me on the rocks :lol: !!!
Regards,
Shirish.

Hi Arun,
This place is rural area...so never came in news about water pollution after ganesh idol immersion and the resulting fish deaths.
If anything happens i will surely let you know.

Shirish.
