Finally Managed the time to go for a trip. And what a trip it turned out to be.

The camp
Image


Left @ 5.30 on Saturday morning for Qibla Bandi Dam. Reached the water @ 7.25, selected a spot ( That wasnt my fav :twisted: ) but decided to sit there as every1 else was in favour of the area. Casted our rods but there was no action. At around 10.30 I got my first bite and landed my first Narian also known as ( Mori/Moracca)

The first of many Narian

Image


After that landed two Narain of similar sizes ( all on Worms) and a Rahu close to a Kg on Atta.

Then Rohail managed to Land a similar fish in just his second outing) :P

Rohails first catch

Image


On the first day caught 7 Narian in total, I rahu, A dozen Talpia and a couple of eels. Decided to call it a day as the team was exhausted.

Got up early next morning and I decided to move to the spot that I thought was the better one and WALA!!!! :D . The fish kept pouring in.

Narian
Image


and more Narian
Image


The vigil of Shah jee :lol:

Image





Over all it was a very good trip and we managed to catch close to 45 Fish amongst the 6 of Us. Took home a few of them, all of the species taken home were the not on the endangered species list.... :-)


My daughter Aayla inspecting the catch :lol:

Shapan!

Actually the way you have posted the pics is perfect. It does n ot slow down the site and if anybody needs to see the pix in a larger size all he has to do is click on it. Imageshack (the host) then opens up and displays the pic/s.

Or you could resize your pics on photoshop and try and keep them less then 1 MB or 4 inches wide.

Bops is the best person to guide you through this.

Shaphan, good show, nice place.

You will have to resize the pics as per the instructions in the first posts under the image gallery. Max size is 640 X 480 and you have used the wrong link from imageshack. Have a look at the how to post images tutorial also under the image gallery.

Shaphan, the only solace for missing this wonderful trip is that i was trout fishing at the same time in northern areas. You guys had a great trip. Congrats to all :D

When are we going to Qibla Bandi :wink: :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The eels weren't that Big as we weren't at the rocky spot near the spill way 8) . As per the locals the eels are bigger there. The same rocky part is the only spot were u can catch the occasional masheer/ Snake head. :P

wow! nice catch, as always. your daughter is just like a little angel and its heartening to see angels too like fish :-)

my past few weeks were also quit boring, now starting to have some time.
after looking at your pics, thinking qibla bandi is the best for a fresh start. you know i m pindi, how to reach qibla bandi dam (especially your spot :wink: :evil: ). can you please guide?

thanx

Rana Sb,

Qibla Bandi is on the road to Tarbella Ghazi, its a good dam to fish at but the sad part is that u know most of these dams under contractual lease and u need permission from the contractor... :evil: :x

Qibla Bandi looks like a fantastic place for fishing.. And am sure the contractor wouldn't mind a few anglers taking a couple of fish, provided his palms are greased..

Any big catches here ???

eljefe,

Thanx mate :lol:


Gavin,

Yeah its a real beautiful place. They are big fish also there. Rahu, Common carp, Narian but thats a rare scene as the dam is on commercial lease and when the lease period is about to end the contractor does net the dam religiously as he has invested a fair amount into it. :cry:

Owen,

as for the fish Narian are also refered to as ( Moracca and Mori), will try and search up the scientific name as well. It is a resonably bony fish, but the bones are bigger and not a pain. ( Tasty Fish Tough :lol: ). I also always thought that it looked some what like a Mirgal. A few of the Narian we caught reflected signs of a cross with Rahus as they had similar colorations.

I have never heard any 1 in Pakistan using the word Mirgal, may be Narian is the Pakistani version of a Mirgal.

Narian are bottom feeders, grow reasonably quickly. Are caught from April to Novemember ( Angling), put up a decent fight. MOstly caught on worms ( reports of Narian on Atta are also there). If u hit a school then rest ashore u'll catch a few of them. Like the Rahu a fish driven by smell.

Weight Chari is the best way to improve your sucess rate.

Shaphan is right. Mrigal (Cirrhinus Cirrhosus) or mori or narain are the same fish. They are called mrigal in India, narian in rawalpindi
area and mori in Punjab.

Rana Sb,

Qibla is better than dungi......... but the problem is that you need permission to go there. The best thing is that if you can spare the time to go down to Qibla and just have a "chat" with the workers of the thekadar...
Mean while will try and check with my friend :wink:

As for dongi they are other spts as well just need to explore........ :roll:

Reports are streaming in from Poonch River AJK ( Masheer 8-10Kg), Raja Zulquirna ws there last week.

Mangla and Tarbella are plaing up as well.

If any one is intrested in going for Rahu, Singhara, Mulley and the odd Masheer Indus river ( DI Khan, Chashma) is the best :lol:

So come on guys plan something........ :x

Shah jee where are u???? :?: :twisted:
