Hi Vikram.
You're not a million miles away from me. I live in Kidderminster. Do you fish in the UK ?

The Salt rod is a bait fishing rod designed to cast 4 to 8oz. This will need to be paired with a hefty reel and heavy nylon mono filament line of perhaps 40 lb - I wouldn't bother with a shock leader. You will need to take your own leads to India as they are simply not available. As to rigs, it really depends on what you're after. Certainly take things like bait thread (I like Ghost Cocoon) and anything else that might be hard to find locally from the UK.

I'm not familiar with your Ugly Stick but would suggest that you give it a try with a mid sized spinning reel and braid line for lure fishing. This sort of outfit will also be handy for any light bait fishing.

I've never fished the East Coast but would expect the usual Indo Pacific species to be present including barramundi, MJ's, trevally etc as well as various species of sharks and rays - and erm catfish......

My suggestion would be to find out as much as you can about the coast near where you will be staying and post up specific questions related to that. Hot spots to look out for would include river mouths and rocky headlands on otherwise sandy shores.

Ghost cocoon is great stuff for keeping soft baits in place when you're casting and it's cheap as chips. I got mine as a freebee about three years ago and I'm still using the same spool.

Freshwater fishing in the UK is subject to a closed season that restricts most (but not all) angling until June 16th. You need an Environment agency licence to fish anywhere in fresh water and you will also need permission to fish which usually means a day ticket or anual club card. Oh and it's pretty much all catch and release.
Unfortunatly, none of my South Asian mates in the UK are into fishing or I'm sure we could have "borrowed" a licence for you for a day but if you fancy an introduction (or even a day out watching) once the season opens, drop me a line.

BTW. Does your ugly Stik give any indication of the weight range of lures that it is designed to cast ?

It's a bit light.
To stand much of a chance, you really need a rod that will cast 1 - 2 oz (30 - 60g) as a minimum when lure fishing in saltwater in India and a rod that will cast 90g is probably a better bet to start out with.
