Angling season starts on the 15th

After a long one year wait the angling season starts on the 15th of this month in the Nawabbari Talab. (Source Mohammed Talha) 

Last year at the beginning of the season someone released poisonous chemical in the water killing all the fishes. Subsequently the fishing was cancelled. The culprits are still at large.

Every year in the month of August when the water is full to the brim, the pond committee organizes this sporting event. Tawas are built by enthusiastic anglers and salty smelly Charas are fed. After the Jummah prayer the event kicks off in a festive mood. While the experts fill their nets sometime as big as 24’ fishes, jealous onlookers raise their eyebrow. At the end of the day those who are successful and have big heart share the fishes with the friends and the family. Sondhabela Bhaja Macher Gondhe Nawab Bari Mou Mou Kore. 

The pond is abundant with Tilapia. Seasonal or daily ticket could be obtained from the pond committee. As per the new arrangement the proceeds are shared between the pond committee and the Moulvi Abdullah Welfare Trust.
