  1. It is heartening to see this site in our country that does not even recognise angling as a sport. A Scottish friend told me that angling is the most participated sport in the world and much, much more than football. I go to Dhaleshwari in Kearaniganj for angling and it is a great trip. I have even written a piece on it, which will be published in the Daily Star Weekend Magazine next week hopefully.

    1. Thanks a lot for landing here. We have been trying with our limited resources to put Bangladesh into international angling arena. We are sure that if we work together it is not an impossible goal to achieve. We would love to hear about your angling experiences. Please join our facebook page and meet other fellow anglers. We wish you a wonderful stay with us.
