Good day to all,
I am a Westerner recently transplanted to Mumbai for most of the next year. I have been an avid fisherman all my life (35yrs) and am interested in what the Mumbai area has to offer in the way of angling. I am particularly interested in how a person may gain access to Powai. The research I have done has indicated that a person must be a member of the Powai fishing club or a guest of a member. I have tried contacting the club through their website, but it appears to be outdated. Is the club taking on members ? I have seen pictures of the many large species of carp that have been taken from this lake. What is the likelyhood of a Westerner gaining legal access ? Also, what are the regulations within India in general for angling ? Is a permit/liscense required ? Are there any sites where someone may come to understand the regulations for particular waters ? Is fishing permitted in any of the following :Tansa, Modak, Bhatsa, Vaitarna, Tulsi, Upper Vaitarna ? I know I have asked many questions, and hopefully the community here will be gracious enough to reply. I am looking forward to learning, and sharing my own aquired angling knowledge.
