@SB - that was a great way to spend a holiday. The koodu has become synthetic now. I remember them as being made of Coconut palm leaves and they used to have sticks inside in the reverse direction to prevent fish from escaping back.

Actually I am looking for like minded guys around here in Palakkad for forming some club (some sort of nature club) - but all the middle aged guys here are well...typical middle aged-make money-eat-sleep kind of people. As such people give me weird look when I walk off alone into forests or such places. Am sure they will pelt stones at me if I go around with a fishing rod!!

Reviving this thread

I am an active angler and go fishing every week. Earlier it was once in a week, but recently it is twice a week. I primarily do shore fishing from breakwaters and occasionally do fishing from boat. Earlier I used to fish using bait, now it is mainly using lures targeting predatory species. I am planning to carry my tackle when I am visiting Kerala in August.

Below are some pics of the fish I have caught in UAE.

This was during my last vacation in Kerala.
