HI GUYS

Just a quick question to anyone whos fished this area, or others in the close range with flies.....whats a good size, colour and weight of fies to use for Mahseer in and around the corbett park area, also how best to use them in the pools and rapids....???

i have fished this area 3 times before but never with flies, the biggest fish of 42lb, came to a mepps number 4 with diffrent hooks and split rings, so would a small / medium fly spoon work???

cheers

chris

Hi Chris,
I've fished this stretch a couple of times upto Bykasein at different times of the year, April and October. However, I haven't managed to land a fish onthe fly although to be honest I haven't spent a lot of time oon the fly - as you say the lure and also deadbait/atta techniques have produced. But I'm not going to give up the fly due to the attraction of playing a mahseer (any mahseer!) on the fly really excites me!

We have caught Indian Trout though, which are lovely looking fish.

I have mainly used a floating line and flies such as Wolly buggers, Blackamoor, stonefly nymph, Salmon files like willie gunn. allys shrimp also fry patterns. I even tried Bone fish patterns like crab ( great bait if you can find them).

I'll be packing the fly kit next time I go, hoepfully next October, I've alot of unfinished business inhte North:)

Good luck, I'd be very intereested to hear how you fare if you try the fly.

The Cauvery is a much bigger river and 40 lb is the minimum I'd use due to the rocks - if you hit something sharp even that will cut like cotton. For lure fishing I'd drop to a minimum of 30, but you tend to be fishing bigger lures than you would on rivers such as the Ramganga so can get away with it a bit more without compromising the action too much. I mainly bait fish on the Cauvery, ragi, crab or chilwa as it is often still coloured when i go. Am flying out next Saturday for a month at Bheemeshwari or if the water drops enough might have a go at Galibore at the end of my stay.
A Malaysian guy i know, George, has tried on the fly when I've been out there before, think he has had small ones but it is hard going.
