Hi, the UCK and KB both are around Shealdah rly stn and are very prominent and famous. Ur frnds who are from Kolkata can easily pick up the stuff. What Mr Gavin ( our co-angler in fort) has written is absolutely correct-UCK charges more but he has also got the variety. Try it out.

Hi Avijit - how's it going mate ?? Heard that you've been groundbaiting the seat on a regular basis ?? Good job Sir.. am sure that you going to catch a biggie from there.. just remember the angles that i had shown you and also to keep the drag a bit loose.. tight lines... :D :D
Its a cracker of a seat and i have regularly caught big fish from there over the last few seasons, including a 6kg rohu (on the left hand char that i had shown you).. all the best Sir..

Prakash - Old Kanto and UKC are in the same market :wink:

Where is the best place to look on the forum for tackle vendors? I'm specifically looking for fly-fishing gear: rods, reels, etc. Can you recommend any online sites that I could order from within India? Thanks!
