    Hi Guys,

    I booked 5 days trip to fish the Andamans for January 2013,
    I visited the Andamans couple of years ago and always wanted to go back, the fishing was great and the scenery, beyond imaginations.
    A place that left a great memory in my heart and my mind.
    I am looking for one angler to join me on that trip, the trip is based on a total of 4 anglers including myself, All 3 guys confirmed.
    The airfare from Emirates Airline departing New York to Chennai is $1205.00 with 1 connecting flight in Dubai, next will be an internal flight from Chennai to Port Blair at approximately $180,
    Anyone interested, please email me at [email protected] or call me at the shop at 718 648 2665 and I will fill you up with all the details,
    The following is some of the catches from my last visit.

    Tight lines

    Sami, I think you should try to keep your hair a little longer instead of shaving it every time I see you then you will be ready for Andamans.

    Good luck Sami, this is the trip I will do with you next year. Can't wait to see the pics, just recently met the Lieutenant Governor of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Bhopinder Singh. He is my uncle, so I will make sure there is a big party at his residence with police escort, lol! I will PM you my contact info.

    The time had come for the trip and we are heading to the Andamans,
    unfortunately Nick won't be able to join us, it was such a hard time to obtain the visa and the time frame to get it is from 2 to 3 weeks.
    Nick,you will be missed on this trip , however i still have a chance to see you in Dubai and get a chance to chat with you.
    we will keep you guys posted.
