Hello everyone

I'm an Indian in London ... cooking French for a living...!
got hooked on to fishing on a holiday in east africa...! had some luck with the tilapias... but since then there's been nothing at the end of my line...
Tried hard at the Osterly lake in Middlesex - Greater london....
kumarkom in Kerala, all of the dams near Nashik and few others around maharashtra... [whn in india]

recently visited the Powai Lake Angling centre but cud'nt meet any anglers... also, i suppose the memberships are yearly n' i'd be in india for not more than a month or two...!!!

So.... for the last two years ...i've been trying to hook my first real one...!!!


Looking forward to learn a great deal from the veterans at IA and make friends who can point me in the right direction...

really hoping i'm at the right place...!!!


Also, i'm visiting the konkan coast (right from Goa -to- kudal / kankavli) for almost a week long holiday.... wth my 9ft SPRO power catcher tele trout spinning rod... (i hope thats an acceptable description of what i have at the moment).
can anyone suggest any good spots - and also what bait & tackle i'd need...?

P.S: cheerz raj, i guess an introduction is a good idea...!


regards,

Ashay 'The Rookie'

Hi Ashay,

Welcome to IA.

The tele trout spinning rod will not be enough if you want to use it in Konkan. :)
