Guys,
Im steve, Born in india now living in Melbourne Australia
I love fishing, am a crazy Automotive enthusiast and a keen photographer amongst a list of other hobbies.
I am so excited to have found a fishing forum for India, I was born and brought up in Kerala (Ernakulum) until I was 19 then moved to Australia
I am dumbfounded at some of the fish that are being caught here in India
I grew up fishing the backwaters at home in bolghatty island, all we caught was catfish, and the occasional bream and grouper now I am seeing so many awesome fish being caught there and everywhere else in India I am so jealous and not to mention shocked as I never knew these fish could be caught there,
Living on an Island meant that fishing was second nature, ive enjoyed fishing since I was a kid, now here in Melbourne im still enjoying it.
back in the old days when I was fishing, just catching the local catfish itself was a great thing
My interest for fishing grew at a staggering rate only after I started fishing in Melbourne and as such I failed to recognise the different species of fish that can be caught in India, now after finding this forum my eyes are opened so wide that’s its hurting…

I will be visiting Kerala at the end of this year (in 3 weeks to be precise)and hope to do some fishing down there. I will post a separate thread on getting some local info soon as I wouldn’t know where to start apart from my local watering hole in Bolghatty island.
I will wrap this first post of mine up by saying bye for now, keep up the good work and tight lines..
Cheers
