Hii guys,


I always wondered how villagers would catch Big masheer with hooks in the old days when they did not have equipments like spinning reel or rod............Here is a methode which I heard from a local villager........ he told me that they used a thick nylon rope which is used usally for tying purpose. It was tied with the hook (wonder how they tied such a thick rope to the hook)..... then they used to bait the hook with ragi ball and cast it into the river...........but before this they used to throw ragi balls at the spot so that the fish would get used to feeding on the balls.........they would then tie the rope to a bush or small tree...........................they used to return after an hour or sometimes even the next day..............then if they got a fish, they would rap their hands with a cloth and pull the line.

In in the night they would use a coracle and equipped with torch lights and heavy knives..............they used to flash the light on the surface of the water..................the fish would then get attracted to the light and the moment the fish would surface they would slice it with the knife.

Another methode is using a fruit...............they used to dry the fruit make a powder of it and spread it on the water surface...........once the fish ate this it would not die but would loose conciousness and surface to the water......althought these methods are banned.......but it still is practised in many areas. There would be more places to fish if illegal fishing is banned.





Have you folks heard of any old techniques please do write.............as far as the above technique is concerned It would be practical only for medium sized fish not for the giants....please dont forget they did not have the drag system... :lol:

I have seen a few Local fishermen catching some really huge Mahseers :shock: in Cauvary just by using a normal Bamboo with rings & hand lines thru it,
Bait was Chilwa caught using gill nets,

We stayed with them fising for a while with our fancy rods & reels with No Luck :? ,

Got a snap of one of them fishing near the Sivasumudaram Power Plant where the rapids were really scary. :shock:

Couple of days ago this same guy had caught a 35 KG Mahseer...



Check their fancy rods that have caught some Gaints :shock:



One of the many Mahseers caught By Locals using Handlines....

Hi Viper
just a thought, but cannot a fund be started to buy back larger masheer for release from the fishermen who sell them for livelyhood.
Regards
Michael
