This is Humaid from Pune. Many of you might be surprised, as I had joined the forum a few years back and I'm posting my intro now.
Well I was never active in angling, was more into fish keeping all these years. Angling was done only on fish collection trips or when I visited Karwar (I never had the patience). All these years I have been crusing along the forum enjoying the various catches. Now I can no longer sit n cruse... its time to jump in. :)
I have never landed any thing Big (excluding moray eels), nor have I ever used any fancy lures/rods. Have always done bait fishing but 99% of the time ended up with cats and eels. Never bothered to get the things right as I mentioned was more into fish keeping.
Lately, I'm done/saturated with fish keeping and its about time to indulge in the new sport. And angling it is.
Let me brief about a few past experiences. I have fished the Kadra Dam in karnataka with the locals using bamboo canes and landed tons of green chromide in the monsoon. Again they are small. Tried the same place for snakeheads but never hooked one.
Salt water, have hooked a few MJs all below the 0.5kg mark on baits.
So I'm here to learn from the masters. Hope you all will guide me and help me land my first salty. :)
A pic just to color up the intro. :)
