Hello there,
Iam crazy flyfisher from Czech Rep. and Iam planning trip for month to India with backpack, and my fly rod... Me and another two my friends decided to travel to India next year somewhere to north of India.. Iam trying to collect informations, because we dont wont to be in anyone of resorts, or using guides, we want to make it by our own as much as we can.... Can you help me with some thinks? Where exactly to go(river or location), what Masheer really is(I know somethink, but I cant really imagine habits of this fish, food, ect.). And main question is: Can we make the trip with a car and tents for whole month :-) ? And what about trouts in mountains? Thanks a lot, with regards Dalibor

Indeed you can travel by car and live in a tent while fishing. If you want to target Mahseer of north india, there are many fellow anglers on this forum who will surly help you regarding locations etc.Wish you a nice fishing trip of India.

Regards,

Ali.

You'll have to leave your car to the mercy of the locals and hit the rivers if you want to get into some fish ... better set up with a hotel in a base town and catch a local transport to the river to hang out there for a while and fish the river.

India is a tough place for the white man or any one for that matter ... too many people ready to shake the last penny off you, and thats not only the local cop ... so better be prepared than sorry !

The legend of a Red headed Englishman who rode on a Vespa scooter from South to north India fishing mahseer in every river around India is a story to be told .... one of the finest mahseer anglers.
