Was up at Bheemashwari for the weekend and landed a small Murrell which was probably a good thing considering no one catching anything. I was told there were no big ones there and the only thing that was happening was small bites from really small Masheer, size 4/0 or 3/0 did not yield anything.
A strange thing happened though, I was teaching a friend of mine how to use the spinning rod, considering the terrain I used a small plug so she would have not problem practicing with that (and I wouldn’t loose it too). Around 6 she yelled a Fish, I was like no way and then landed the fish into the landing net, I was quite surprised to see a Cat Fish, I thought it was a false hook and asked her to try again, the next cast yielded another cat fish and another and another all the time the cat fish were actually trying to bite into the lure and I had a few which has all the three hooks from the treble hooked on. I have never seen this or heard of this before, I asked the Gillis around and they had never heard of this too. Any insights on this???
The next day fishing in front of the tent I noticed a strange thing saw a group of Frog looking things floating around upon enquiry I was told they are called Frog Fish again a first one never heard of them before. They look exactly like a frog from the above but moved like a fish, apparently they always swim on the surface. Another angler actually landed one of them using a Fly. I don’t know what the actual name is, tried Google with the search word Frog Fish and no luck. Would like to know more on this one.
Other encounters included a Wild Boar trying to wake me up, a Deer and ahhh nearly hooked into a Croc while using a spinner
A strange weekend.
