Hi everyone. Fished out this site almost immediately from google and discover this to be a great site to jump start this great hobby.

Belong to hyderabad, india. Presently in Kampala, Uganda. Got this idea of angling after seeing the great lake victoria. Was planning to buy some fishing gear for a hobby.

Please advise on the equipment for a beginner like me. Saw some cheap all in all fishing equipment in one super market here in kampala - basically for kids. Was wondering whether it works for a beginner.. Please advise.. Thanks in advance.

Thanks every one.

Unfortunately could not go through the posts. However, bought a kids fishing rod to start with and a 5.5 lb line came along with it.

Went fishing in lake victoria at the Speke Resort and had a great start. Caught almost about 10 fish upto sizes of 7 inches length at a depth of about 1.5 m with the help of a local person in the resort.

will need to go for a better fishing rod, once i am back to hyd. shall go through the forum and posts as suggested and finalise the one that suits.

thanks.

Welcome to IA, I understand Lake Victoria has some huge Nile Perch, you will need a decent rod to land one of those babies.
