Dear Fishing Friends,
My name is Girish Kulkarni and I am a fishing enthusiast. I live in Mumbai’s extreme suburbs place called Dahisar. Fishing is something which has fascinated me since my childhood and being surrounded by local fishermen and having access to creek had a chance to fulfill my adventure going fishing with these local fisher friends of mine being a part of their team fishing in a traditional technique called “Vana”.
Recently I have purchased a Rapala Rod a couple of Chinese and Korean reels with monofilament lines on them. I do have a couple of lures one squid, hooks, weight bullets, Swrils (don’t know the right name), some things which look close to a safety pin and floats.
Please advise me on the following:
·Whether I need to buy anything more required.
·How to get the gear ready.
·How to fish.
·When to fish.

The specification of the rods are as follows:
·12 feet 2 piece rod.
·11 guides or runners.
·I had written to Rapala asking them the capacity of the rod by giving them the series no. they told me upto 30 lbs.
So friends I will be really thankful to you if you all can help me get going.
With regards,
