A soft 'wake up, it's time' and Alya was out of bed and in the bath in a flash. It was 4.30 in the morning and considering the fact that she needs to be kicked out of bed on a school day just shows how excited she was.

Vickram arrived finally and we set off to the sol canals. Reaching there around 7 we took out the kit and bait and cast out.

The first to hook up was Alya. A nice little Bronze Featherback just over 500g. However hard we tried she refused to be shot with it. And this is a girl who catches lizards and takes them to school.

All this while Vickram and I were patrolling the bank looking for the Sol. But they refused to show themselves. A good hour passed before Vickram returned with a nice 2kg fish.

The day dragged on from that point. No rises or bites. It was as if the Sol were on holiday.

Just as we were planning to leave and I announced to Alya that this was the last cast the forg was swallowed by something. Now this was unlike any sopl take. The fish came from below and just swallowed everything around the frog. Unlike a sol that really pound the poor little thing. I waited a few seconds and them struck.

All hell broke loose. The fight was very different and I kept waiting for the fish to give up like a sol does. But it pulled and shook its head right till it got to the bank.

Surprise! It was a mulley. This was a first for me. I have caught mulley on plug, spoon and spinner. But never on a top water frog.

Apart form these three fish we saw thousand of rahu, 2 to 7kg, lining up at the jheels outlet waiting for the water to rise so that they could get into the canal. I have never seen such a sight. Big ones swimming in a few inches of water and jumping over a two foot drop.

Now that the rains are here I am sure things are going to get better.

Hey Rajat,
This is not her first catch. That was a small Himalyan trout (asla) at Ramganga. She has also caught carp, catfish and a turtle (it's genetic, you see). About the riding, she's taking a break right now because her horse, Artic, was sent to another school. so she is pissed off and is now looking for a few more schools. Women I tell you. Totally predictable at being unpredictable.
