Hi Arun, I just read the same chapter out of 'Rod in india' this afternoon
Also snapped the tip section of a Ron Thompson 7 weight fly rod this afternoon
...... light drag takes a little getting used to
after all the GT , Doggie fishing we've been doing. So fly fishing for them is no longer an option.
Hi Jeen, We've found some lovely water for light fishing that apperently teems with Oxeye Tarpon. I'm going to start with the smallest plugs/barra plugs I have and bump troll them. If that doesn't work I'll try dead bait. Some how can't bring myself to use a float here yet.
Hi Vincent, I use sabiki rigs on a reglular basis to catch bait fish or to keep myself amused on days I'm not fishing offshore. It's amazing the wide variety of species one can catch on sabiki off a jetty here. The areas I'm looking at for the Oxeye Tarpon are an average depth of 2 to 6 meters making it a bit diff/impractical to use a sabiki.
I'll try and send you guys a pic of the inflatable we use and the waters I fish for them. Heading out tomorrow morning, so will let you know what I catch.
