Hello to all the members of Indian Angler forum! My name is Arish and i have been introduced to this forum by my ucnle. Im very new to angling and want to learn more about angling and i hope to catch the prized monsters.

i have recently been to my first fishing trip to a small lake near nagarjunasagar and later to somewhere near toopran on the outskirt of Hyderabad.

Although im very new to fishing and i find it very hard to bear patience :roll: , so on my first trip i kept throwing and reeling back the bait continually every 5-10mins and im lucky to catch my first catch, it is none other than a crab as it got struck in the returning hook :lol:

later on i learned that patient plays an important roll in catching fishes!

here im showing some of the pics of my trips

The First trip to a lake near Nagarjunasagar

this small rod where a thik thread is attached to its other end through charkhi

Image
Frankly speaking this was my first ever catch!

Image
A Rohu(correct me if im wrong)

Image
Another shot of rohu catched by one of our fishing companion.

Image
Can someone identify which kind of fish is this?


Here are pics of my second trip to a lake near toopran which is 65km away from Hyderabad!

Image
A view of the lake

Image
here my brother got lucky and it was the only fish we caught! and i think this is also Rohu...

Image
and im the most unluckiest person !


i would like to learn a lot from the experienced anglers here please help me catch a monster!

thus ended my introductory message to all the members of Indian Angler.

Welcome to the forum Arish.

Looks like you have an able teacher (Your uncle) with you to guide you in the lore of fishing so tag along with him and learn as much as you can.

If patience is not your forte, start spinning/ lure fishing. You will surely like it.

As you are new to angling and this forum, I would like to tell you that the treble hooks you are using for your rig is a big no no in carp fishing. :!:

Further to this, the size of photos are too big and against the forum rules. Kindly re-size them and also read forum rules before posting.

Once again, welcome to the forum,

Regards,

Ali.

Hello Arish,

Welcom to IA, you actually stand a better chance with hookups using single hooks.

Pay heed to Ali's words, he is a master carp angler.

Please take time to read the forum rules. Appreciate if you can resize your images.

Bobby

Arish!


Hi Arish,

I see no one answered this one, the are certain sporting ethics to angling and a true angler will learn to appreciate this, you are not just pitting yourself against a fish, but as you mature you do so against yourself, that is why you will find some good, senior anglers will rate taking a much smaller fish under certain conditions over a much larger fish taken under others.

A treble hook, unless used on a lure is considered unsporting. Sometimes people feel that they have a better chance with 3 hooks over one, but a lot of time the other two hooks prevent the one that has actually got the fish from hitting truly home and the hook-up is not clean, and it does come off. With bait fishing there are several advantages using single hooks over trebles, most baits are better presented on single hooks, and the way a fish takes the bait in its mouth allows a single hook better access, fish take the hook from the bend and very rarely from the point. That’s why you find a lot of hooks where the shank and point are not parallel but the point is slightly off.

There are various other reasons, but I hope you get the point from the few I have listed.

Bobby

Welcome to IA Arish, I would love to meet your uncle next time I come to Hyderabad.

And as adolf said the fish in picture is a catfish, also called as Maroof in hyderbad ... they are not good for eating as they are mostly scavengers and can grow very big ... like someon caught a 20 KG maroof in Musi(dirty water) river.

Welcome again, ahlan wa sahlan.

Thanks Luqman, Insha Allah will let you meet my uncle the next time you come to Hyderabad.

and thanks again for the information on Maroof. I think that catfish could not be Maroof(Clarias batrachus) as its tail is v shaped where as maroof has rounded tail.:?:

The stretch of Musi river from Osmansagar and Himayathsagar to Langarhouz is clean river since i used to cross this stretch during my college(shadan college of Eng. and Tech.) days daily and had seen many people fishing there during mansoon season. The river becomes dirty once it travel from langarhouz because drainage water are let loose into the river from langarhouz onward :(
