Thanks everyone :)
BTW I spent the whole day going through the site, it was a blast! Theres tonzz of information available
I wouldn't find much info in the equipment section though. I was looking to buy the most basic kit available locally in India.
Any idea what is needed in a kit besides a rod, reel and line? :P

Hi Aditya,

Welcome to the forum mate.

Beside the above hooks will be essential part of your basic kit. Add a float to that and you are ready with your basic kit.

Things starts become complicated after this. You have to decide what kind of fishing you want to do. The list is endless so can not be described through this post.

There are lot of accomplished anglers on this forum from Pune and best thing for you will be to tag along one of them and then decide what kind of fishing you want to do.

Regards,

Ali. :P

Small update, picked up an Okuma diemos Spinning Combo
http://www.amazon.com/Okuma-DIEMOS-SC-D ... B001V7MW1G
Also got some daiwa .35mm 14lb line, floats, a spoon, hooks and sinkers. All for ~3k
This sunday will get to try this out. Seeing how easily line gets tangled I think the first 2-3 sessions are going to be total failures and a laughter fest for the onlookers :P
EDITED Please don't post the names of other commercial establishments. It is against the rules.
