Lately I have been hooked to pond fishing. Got myself my first fishing rod and ventured out thrice so far and gladly have been making evident progress when it comes to learning the tips of the trade. Bengal is an angling hub. I can’t call myself an angler yet, currently just a beginner and the professionals haven’t given me the go-ahead to play in the river. My biggest catch so far was a half a kilo fish. In the 3 days, about 6 hours each, a world of patience was introduced to me. And yes, patience is a good company to be with! Hopefully I will be able to graduate to river from pond soon. Also realised that here Jeremy Wade is to pond fishing what Sachin Tendulkar is to cricket.
