Hi friends,
Its been long since i shared my fishing adventures with all of you. But I have a problem at hand. I was at a place near lohegad where i have a house and a pond nearby where there are plenty fish to take the bait. Anyone gets fish. But here was a moster the locals call as Khavllya. I was getting bites but not khavllya. So i got my cast net out and started casting. By lord I tell you truth, I got him the khavllya, a 2 foot long and about 1 foot in width weighing i guess 3kgs. But in all the excitement & rush to get him out he slipped out. :(

I kept casting but nogo. Started using spinners, different bait but he remained illusive. I have given that place 6 tries but got only Tilapis and some not so good fish which look like piranhas. But NO KHAVLLYA.

Hence i am taking this opportunity to call all the fellow anglers who wish to join in to catch khavllya. I will be heading to Malavali, lonavala on Thursday and will be staying there for a week. So all of you who wish to make it a weekend to remember get in touch with me. Ali bhai I have found the Promise Land :twisted: :lol: Come along if you have time.

Any suggestions on anything always welcome.

Must be that same turtle who came out of its shell and was dragging the shell to and fro :)

no not a mahseer.. khavllya or khavli/khouvli is nothing but big carp. thats the marathi name. paangat = humpbacked mahseer, khadshi also is mahseer. all marathi names here.

The Villagers in Maharashtra call all carps as "Khavllya" or "Khavli". Therefore, unless you take a photograph of a Fish, one may not be able to zero in on the exact fish that haunts you in your Pond.

In your excitement, you have mentioned the dimensions of this fish as 2 feet long and 1 foot wide, I suppose.

Regards,

Arun
