Hello IA followers,
I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate the founder and the regular partcipants for such an active forum.
As an avid angler that has recently taken on an assignment in India, I don't want to miss the chance to explore my horizon regarding fishing in India.
I could not think of a better place to start than this forum due to it's dynamics and the members dedicated to this fine sport.

As far as my previous fishing experience goes. I started out like many others here - with my Grandfather roughly 35 years ago, fishing the back then quiet and peaceful rivers and lakes in Germany. In those years a nice carp, pike or walleye were almost a given. Time has changed. Almost every public waterbody is overfished and the culture of anglers that preserve and conserve their resources is non existent anymore.
This change had lead me to explore fishing in foreign countrys. Ireland, England, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Spain and Canada are amongst the places I have tried and enjoyed.
In 1992 I went to Alaska for the first time and was instandly hooked on this paradise. Thats the reason for my screen name in case someone hasn't noticed by now. Within days of my first journey "up north" I knew that this is excactly what I was looking for. The versatility of fishing is only limited by the weather which can throw a curveball quite often.
I do flyfish for the most part in the rivers on the Kenai Peninsula. Frequent trips into the salt waters are also part of the enjoyment.

Due to the fact that comuting between India and Alaska is roughly 22 hours of flying time, I thought I will start and do some straight forward fresh water bait fishing again. Last week I did visit Mumbai which will be my home away from home for the next 3 years. Needless to say - Powai lake cought my eye right away since my housing will be within casting reach from the shore. Research in the forum and the www gave me a conflicting picture regarding Powai lake. Some posts claim membership is closed for new applicants where as the MSAA webpage shows openings for new members. Maybe someone with insight can enlighten me. No update on the crocks needed - I've seen them.
I would love to see if my skills in carp fishing still exist and which result can be archieved. I'd hate to come across as someone just looking for a cheap way to catch fish. Foremost - Freshwater fishing is catch and release only for me. In addition to this I am sure I could pass on some technique and tricks learned over the years. Fishing is a comunity sport and that's exactly what I have in mind. Fishing with likeminded people.
Learning and passing on the experience to others, telling a fish tale once in a while and of course - the camerandery among fishing fools.

I am looking forward to become a part of the IA comunity and can't wait to unpack my gear for the first fishing tip in "incredible India"

Untill then - Alaskafan
