Hello folks,

Here is my long over due introduction.

My name is Om. I'm originally from chennai and moved recently to Bangalore on a long term work assignment. Going to be here at least for a good couple of years.

I've been always interested in fishing from very early years and caught a lot of tilapia on the good old cane and line setup.

I've taken angling a little more seriously since November 2013 and had mixed results so far.

Spinning with plugs, spoons, inline spinners and bucktail jigs are my preferred techniques. I have had good success with rubber shads as well.

Some what I shy away from bait fishing. No offense on that, I guess it's just that spinning appeals a lot good to me.

I thoroughly believe in catch and release and to be prudent as much as the situation allows you not to disturb the environment in any way. However couple of instances it was clear that the fish won't make it and went to the pot. So far I've caught barramundi, mahseer and even a small gt once. Snakehead and mulley are what I'm after now.

I'm not an expert in anyway but I've improved quite a bit from where I was. Thanks to the numerous folks contributing enormously with a lot of valuable information here. Looking forward take and contribute in any which ways I can.

By the way I went alone to srirangapatna last weekend and was spinning both the days at the arkavathy river with no luck. I'm planning a solo trip to mangalore this weekend. If anyone's interested please feel free to join.

My best
Om
