Has anyone fished in Bhutan? I am very much interested but not getting any lead. The place is located so much near Assam, still I am not getting any lead. Please help.

Though I haven't fished in Bhutan, just thought of sharing some info on the gateway town to Bhutan.

The most popular entry point is Jaigaon on Indian side and Phuntshilling on Bhutan side. Jaigaon will be some 30 km from Hasimara. If you are coming from Assam follow the NH31 to Alipurduar and then to Hasimara.
Indians do not need passport but all vehicle requires registration at Phuntshilling.
To go to Thimpu, the capital of Bhutan, 12-14 hrs of bus journey, and you need permit which is easily available.
No idea about angling permits though.

Cheers

I had been to Phuntshilling once. I know the route till there as we were not allowed to go further as my father forgot to bring his identity proof. I want to know whom to approach for angling permits and all other necessary paperworks.

Hi Anindya,

I have also saved this web page before posting this topic. The problem is that a lot of our angler friends from Assam has visited Bhutanese police stations either for having a proper or improper fishing permits. Some says fishing is totally prohibited and the web page says anglers can fish in the bhutanese waters after getting the licence from the authorised departments. You must have noticed in the webpage that the angling licence norms were made in 1974. As per as I am informed, royal king is an avid angler and has banned all kind of fishing in bhutan. I think virajchopra can throw some light in this matter. But it seems he hardly visit this site now a days.

Cheers,
Apoo

I pm'ed you a link to a fishing article on Bhutan. Looks like there is some nice trout fishing. You may be able to email the auther and find some more info out. I have been thinking the same. From what I have read, there are very few places you can trout fish if you live there, but non residents can fish with a proper permit. As a US citizen, I believe i have to pay the government $200 a day, just to visit, and then I can fish the kings waters. I wanted to fish in Bhutan when I come this winter, but due to the cost, and the wide variety of fishing in India I will go some other time. Maybe next year.

There was an episode of "The accidental angler" in which Charles Rangeley-Wilson fished Bhutan.
There's no sign of it on YouTube but a google search seems to show it being available from several torrent sites. I don't use torrents myself but if anyone feels so inclined.....
