angling and scotch whiskyAngling is a sport most popular sport in the western world, which is at its early stage in India. It started as a recreational sport and soon went on to become more competitive among the developed countries. Here the fisherman is required to catch a specified species of fish or fishes, usually involves ‘Catch and Release’ technique; this sport is one that is not to be taken lightly. It combines the mental stamina of that of a chess player with the physical extrusion of any contact sport player.

Angling takes place in both fresh water and salt water. The angler is required to throw the bait which is tied to the end of the fishing line and wait till the prey is trapped; then the fishermen have to tackle the fish that is very aggressive and alive. The bigger the fish is, the better it gets. Usually fishermen used worms and snails as their baits but as times passed by artificial baits known as fishing flies were used instead of live ones. They reduced the risk of infection and also the trouble of catching them. These fishing flies were as effective in attracting the fish as their live counterpart where.
