I too live in Brighton and went to India last winter for a six week fishing trip. I'm away for xmas but am back in Brighton after the 28th. Drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
and let me know if you're into freshwater/sea/bait/lure fishing and I'll get back to you. Maybe we could hook up for a beer in the new year as I'd be happy to pass the info on to you and it's always good to meet like minded people??
P.s. check out my thread on page 2 of the 'Image gallery' section on this forum entitled 'lure caught beasties'.
