Hi,
Doon forests are full of Sal trees and these are full of Cicada. The forests resonate with their sound at night.
The cicada dies naturally and is swept into the Ganges . the story at the Kumaon region would not be very different. this is obviously natural food for fish.
Accordingly these were brought in about 6 months back and though they have not been tried in above said areas - but in other areas there were 2 hook ups.
Needs to be worked on more .
in the centre is the cicada put belly up to show U how it will appear to the fish.see the fine markings on the wings.
Feel it will work for Sol aswell

Aha!

Yaj what i forgot to add to that list is the Hamdhingra Special. Probably the most effective lure up north. But it remains a mystery for good reason.

In person I promise to give out all information-show U all the lures and those lures that not only work -but are all time killers. I have atleast 10 on the killers list and available with me.But then what happens to conservation ? I have never given a lure to any person other than anglers. I regard it as a sin to give lures to locals and sometimes when my lure is snagged and broken -I tell then I have got it out - so that they do not go after it.

Surprised no one has mentioned Mepps No. 4 and 5 spinners (the weighted Aglia ones), they've worked for me on the Ramganga and work ok on a very slow retrieve, especially good in fast water. You need to change the hook on them though for a decent one
As has already been said trout pattern can be very good, such as the Rapala jointed.

You certainly need different gear to down in the south - took my large Rapala shad raps and my size 6/0 and 8/0 Owners (for bait fishing) and my ghillie laughed at them, he was right though as a more subtle approach - smaller lures and hooks - did work!

a decent fish - even a 10 lbs in fast waters will test the strength of the lure, split rings and hooks. we have had plugs demolished, split rings opened up, hooks straightened and spit out ... there is no mercy and no inch given in a good fight with a decent mahseer.

As the chances of a take with a decent size fish is for anybody with a plug in the water, some pointers to reduce fish damage/loss and more fish returned to the waters safely.

Split rings ... the most critical thing that actually holds everything together - no use for the hook or the plug without strong rings to hold the fish. Any strong tug or shake of the big head will take the hook off the ring. And if it is a big one, if the rings are not strong forget getting him in. Its the most crucial pressure point in the whole tackle beside the knot.

from experience, we throw all the split rings that come with the lures and the hooks. all the aluminium ones, even if they look thick and strong are useless. a must to change rings and hooks.

lures - stick to those that have a central wire running through and strong - one of the best exploratory lures up north is the weakest, always a tough decision to put it into the water - 50% chance of the plug cracking up. the jointed ones are tricky in big rivers - minimise the risks of anything giving way when you have a big one on ... and everybody has the same chance to hook the big one. the skill is in landing it.

there is a lot of discussion on lures with some crazy colourings out there - every week the river changes up north when the fishing season starts for mahseer and different lures work in different times. ones that represent the natural food habits of the fish work best with similar colourings.

look for decent weight min 1/2 oz for decent cast in bigger waters or even ramganga - easier to control the casts with this weight. Minnows and lipless crankbaits with a decent swimming action work best - some noisy ones and some silent ones.

its really a personal thing - collections reflect experience ... i guess every one has stories to tell with the lures over the years.

main thing is to have a strong tackle to ensure less fish lost with hooks and plugs sticking out of their mouths...

one learns by experience to handle a big fish but if the tackle is strong, you fish with confidence and can focus on the fight instead of worrying whats going to give when the fish is darting towards the rapid and the only chance you have is to put all the brakes on immediately ... reel screaming, rod bent over and the sound of the river.
