Im going to India for 6 months in june, for a uni workplacement volunteer job in a jungle in the SE. Im going to have 2 months of travelling spread over the start and end of my trip, and Im desperatlly wanting to catch a masheer! I will be travelling on a budget so dont wont to pay massive amounts jus to catch the mahseer.
# was wondering if i need to go fishing through a guide or if i can just do it myself? I wont be taking any gear, but was wondering if you can hire tackle in Masheer fishing areas.
# Im spending a month up north (Delhi then East) in june, but heard this is a bad time to fish for mahseer...would it be possible to catch at this time of year but is it a waste of time?
# The next 4 months in the jungle where im working is near the cauvery river (july-Nov). Is this a good time to angle for mahseer?
# Also roughly how much does a day with a guide cost?
Was just wondering if anyone could give me some advice to mad keen fisherman, who will be travelling on a budget but desperatly wants to catch a few awsome mahseer.
