Thanks you Sir,
I see great potential for sports fishing as India being blessed with greater places for Sports Anglers. My country man will never believe for you to hook on decent size Travellies, Baracudas, Baramundi just over the shore line. We have to go over 5 n.miles for that kind of fish. We now have to go further near oil rigs on the eastern shore and even to the Thailand and South Burma to really enjoy fishing.
I may be wrong but I see this fishy hobby has still little followers, even looking at the traffic on this forum as I am a regular with the Malaysian and Singapore forum and even to the Bloodydecks.com of the US. As said there are great potential to this hobby and industry in India, also tourism not to forget.
I was in Bangalore in 2003-06 but sadly had no chance to go venturing Cauvery River for the great mahsheer as I had no kakis to go and enjoy fishing then. I was not even aware of any fishing tackle shop is Bangalore then when anglers from over the globe dream of the mahsheer but not so much from locals, I may be wrong still. It has changed now I believe for a greater one. Frankly members of the forum plays a big role to promote the fun of fishing. I have not seen any local Anglers Magazines still to date, maybe I should think of venturing into one. Hehehe.
Still I am looking for an opportunity to wet some lines....
Tight Lines... Bring in the fish!!
