Hi all,

First I'd like to thank you all for all the information I have gathered just reading through some of the threads on this forum. I sure have learnt alot from all of you.

My name is Pawan and I am from Nepal, I have always been interested in 'fishing'. When I was much younger I caught a few eels 'Baam' and local carp called 'Rewa' (unfortunately not catch and release). All this fishing was done i a lake, using earthworms as bait and trying to ape local fishermen in their techniques (fish I was half as successful).

I am interested in learning more about the different kinds of fish and more about spinning, shore-spinning and fly-fishing. I am in Delhi quite alot, so it would really be nice to meet up with some of you guys.

My dream is to learn to fly-fish for trout and Mahseer in Himalayan streams and rivers using a bamboo-rod and home-made flies 8)

I am also eager to learn more about circle and barbless hooks and handling fish properly :-)

There definitely are alot of like-minded people on this forum. Hope to be able to learn from all of you and go fishing together sometime.

By the way, the tackle I used for the little bit of fishing I did were:

Rod: Shakespeare Red ruby telescopic 1129H-210. Sections 6 , Action B 10-20. Carbon composite.

Reel: Shakespeare MK II 2280-030 Ball Bearing
030 Series 2280/2260 DIA-METER 020(200) 030(100) LBS-YDS 4(290) 8(130)

Line: No idea what it was, unfortunately I can't find the packaging.

Hooks: sizes 10 and 8. Have some fly-spoons, but never learnt to use them.

can anybody help telling me a little about what all those numbers mean, if the tackle is any good or I need to try looking for something new, and a little about maintenance. What bits do I need to oil/grease etc.

Thanks alot in advance guys.

Cheers,
Pawan

Hi Guys,

Thanks to all of you for your warm welcome. I have learnt alot just reading through the forum and I sure intend to learn alot more.

Does anyone know where I can buy a fly-rod and reel (along with fly-line, flies etc.) in around Delhi?

Also is my tackle any good? (no puns on that please). Can't find any specs on my rod and reel on the net. Guess it's too old already, but is it comparable to the Ugly Stik?

Thanks in advance,
Happy fishing.

Hi Ganesha,

Welcome to IA,
