Michael,welcome to the IA Forum . My eldest boy Micheal was born in lower Coonoor in 1969 in a small nursing home near the very busy bus stop. I travelled by Nilgiri express from Madras to see him the next day after his birth. A very special moment as all you fathers would know. No,he did not take up fishing like his old man,but is a natural learner! Maybe one day when other attractions drop away!
Welcome again Michael. You will learn from the forum I'm sure.
Regards,
Glenn

Jude. tried at Pykara but to no avail. You have to get permission from the Naval station and buy yourself a fishing licence for a month, from the fisheries dept.

Hi Beemorein,(do U have a shorter name ...?)
I'm a peck and type ... spend 3000 cals everytime I pen a note..

No fish or no can fish without the license ??
I have heard about carps upto 20kg there.

Does this license cost much ???
Anyway would be a waste if you are not posted at Ooty.

This Gavin pays for his fishing at around 3000K per year.(???) :cry:
Just one trip to the cauvery is 6 hrs travel and around 1K, excluding gas.
And then, every afternoon :( he lunches at Fort William.
I think I gotta chuck :idea: up my present job and join a bank.

Jude

Hey Jude, 3k is bloody damn good for a place like Fort William... If I were to take you to other places in Cal where people fish, shoulder to shoulder, you would understand exactly why i spend that amount of dough :lol: ...
But all said and done,, its worth every paisa of the 3k... Wouldnt' you say so ??

The licence costs 20 bucks a month, but, you still have to get the permission of the naval station at wellington. If you are a mimber of coonor club or wellingtion, it is normally granted. The name is bobbee.

Till last year our group used to get trout fishing licences @ 15/- per day from the fishery department and fish in a place called Avalanch which falls in forest land in the hills .But this year the forest department is not allowing any fishing . In Pykara and below the Pykara dam the fishery department still gives licences for mixed and coarse fishing. In the plains we fish in a place called Bhavanisagar where we catch murrel mainly and carp

The only species of trout in the Nilgiris is Rainbow trout, but as mentioned earlier all the fishing streams are in forest laned Even if the fishery department gives a trout licence, the forest department will not allow you to enter forest land for fishing.

Michael have you tried the Katery and Lovedale lakes? We caught Mirror and golden carp there and also Tench in the shallow end of the lakes. Because of our gear we had to wait untill the fish moved close in and drop our bait as close as possible to the churned up water and we always got a few which were taken home and put inthe bathtub!!With our modern day rods and reels I daresay you would not have to wait for them to come close in ,but you would almost cast at their point of feeding. Good luck if you have'nt tried these epots alreadyand provided you like catching carp.
Cheers,
Glenn
