Hopefully i'd be able to join the Ceylon Sea Anglers club this season. If i can come up with the money that is. But seriously, if you want to learn the best fishing spots in SL you ought to join the club. They boast of probably the biggest group of crazy fisherman i've ever seen & their organized fishing tournaments & trips are a blast.

But my Friend tells me that they were unable to renew their Long term lease of the Sea Anglers Club in Trinco. (Sunday Times Article) Such a shame! But they apparently found a new plot of land which they want to buy outright? (Rumour...?)
Anyway, If Off shore fishing is your thing & the Travel is a definite No no, i suggest you to pack up your gear & head down to the bathing steps/place in Diyawannawa Rajagiriya. (Right on Parliment road). It's usually allowed unless it's a Poya. beleive me you'd be suprised with the Catch! A throw net is perfect if you want to catch Lunch in 1 hour. But if it's the chilling your looking for this place is equally good for casting & minimum patience is required. Morning times are the best starting at around 5.30am to 8am.
If anyone knows of any Good Off Shore fishing spots close to Colombo Pls do let me know!
