It was 12/Feb/2008 at about 2:30 PM and I was in office when my friend Shaphan called me that he is going to Rawal Lake with another friend Rohail for fishing, and they want me to join them, I think for a minute and then some how :) managed and left office at nearly 3:00. It is about 10 Min drive from my office.
I Reached the spot in 20 Mins,
I always take two telescopic spinning rods, reels and Rod rest with me in my car. Unfortunately I didn’t had the tackle box that day so I borrowed 2 rigs/weights from Shaphan and cast my rods at roughly 3:30.
It was a bright day and a cool breeze was running.
The fist bit occurred with in 15 minutes and Rohail landed nearly a 1 pound Common carp, and after half a hour I caught nearly 5 pound Golden colored Common carp.

We left the spot at 7:15 as it was to dark to see the strike indicators.

It was my shortest trip and I enjoyed it very much… :)

Mobeen, that looks like a nice picture. However the link is not posted correctly so one cannot click on it to make it bigger. Have a look at the first two posts in this section to learn more about posting images. Remember to resize the images correctly before posting.

Nice little outing mate. My daughter has that big boy's lil sister in her bowl. She, by the way, is not very happy as I now look at that little fish differently. :twisted: :roll:

First time I've seen a golden carp, hats-off to you Mobeen. A friend of mine caught a carp/goldfish cross before - colour was the same as a common carp but its fins were longer than normal.. :wink:

Great fish Mobeen though not clearly visible.
As for the colour of fish, i dont think its a cross between common carp and gold fish. It is just a simple common carp with different colour. Last May i went to a govt hatchery to buy common carp and snakehead fry which I later released in a number of natural ponds in Marala and Sialkot area.(I will go this year and fish there if something is still left :twisted: ) There in the hatchery pond, i saw many fish like this. Some were absolutely red in colour. Those that i released also included atleast ten common carp fry of orange colour. So i believe that its a simple common carp (gulfaam) and not a cross or a oversized goldfish.
Hope to join you on some weekend :roll:
Regards
Sualeh

That's the kind of fish I'd expect to see under a wicker bridge over a lilly pond in some japanese garden. [smilie=graytard.gif]
Guess it was bred for ornamental purposes more than anything else. We humans have to tamper with things......
