Ok..so I FINALLY got to see the pumphouse, thanks to Sam and MM [Thanks guys, really enjoyed myself]. I'd been reading about it all this time and I had imagined the location in the wrong place [ read wrong state!!]. I had expected to be taken blindfolded, but to my surprise I was graciously taken to this really nice spot :D

Saw a SOL for the first time in my life. A HUGE one at that. I cast my frog in this vile looking pool. I dragged the frog back to me, mimicking the retrieve I'd seen the guys use. I saw a wake behind my frog, followed by the eyes and then the enormous face. I saw the take, such a violent take at that! I heard the gillie shout "set it" and all i did was look at this fish, with disbelief. No points for guessing what followed, the fish struck and vanished....I didn't catch a single fish but the imagery imprinted in my mind today means only one thing. I will be back!!

I tried flyfishing as well and though there were no takes Im convinced this is a very real and possible way to fish for these monsters. The gillie said it was atleast 5 Kgs but we'll never find out. The one that got away, there is always the one that got away..such is the way of angling.

Thats it , short report from one happy and satisfied angler. 5 hour drive to glimpse a take [or two]...but still a good day fishing.

Cheers guys...

Great stuff Bobby... The PHG holds many stories of monstrous sol and other "things". Hang out with Sol-Sam and the gang and u will be soon wading into the canal with your undies on, and retrieving a fluffa of a sol...

btw did u guys stop for the egg toast and pumpkin sauce ??

Yes, the famous PHG. I have been lucky enough to visit this place once. (I too was not blindfolded :roll: ). Great place with many fishy and non fishy (Read Bee) encounters and stories. :lol:

Your fish will also add to the growing lore of this place.

I am sure, next time you will be prepared enough to execute the strike, resisting the spell of a charging Sol. :wink: :lol:

Regards,

Ali. :D

BTW there is this status of a dude on a horse, next to Farukhnagar, i think.. As many times I have gone fishing there, the statue was always covered.. Did u notice it ?

I think Sam and MurrelKen can throw some light on this ?

GRC, on the way back we did stop at another place at Farukhnagar and had tea and some lunch/dinner. Ask Sam about it. He absolutely loves this place, had to drag him away by ears :D

Must be the same bloody place, mate.... Sam adores that place.. Just drop a hint and he is ready to stop for some tea and grub...
The challenge is getting Mr Ken to stop... :lol: :lol: Think only once I managed to get him to stop...
And I believe that time, he made use of it to wash his car... :lol: :lol:
