First of all my apologies if any one got offended, I am not criticizing the methods, I realize many people fish in order to earn for there families and that to with ingenious means.

But then they are people who fish for pleasure using similar means, my comparison is for that segment. :lol:

Caught while floating (great fight), so naturally I was over the moon. :D

To me it looks more like a Welsh Catfish. What do you say?

I'm sure it must be a Wels but my point is that most of the pics of wels catfish on the net are of huge fish,seeing a smaller specimen makes one realise how similar it is to the Wallagu attu in appearance :D

Yeah that one was caught in an English lake, his mother would've been nicer though.. and she wasn't Welsh the last time I asked :lol:

The adolescent Wells' similarity to the mulley is uncanny.

most sport people will not fish for the goonch unless someone wants a picture with the ugliest fish on earth contest.

those who have caught monster sizes (fishing for the record) up north from the ramganga mainly have had gillies dive in and pull the bugger out of the water as it justs sits in the deep water - when the patience runs dry with all the tricks to move it over, its the only option left otherwise the angler can be at camp for a couple of days trying to move it inch by inch - a sport for patience or die hards.

the fish are found in mahseer altitude zones in the himalayan region - from 2000 downwards depending on the size of the rivers.

havent heard too many goonch attacking stories in Kumaon / Garhwal or Nepal ... could be a plains thing.

migrating goonch ? thats interesting - freshwater or coldwater spawners ?

bagiganga,

Goonch in Pakistan is the least talked about fish amongst Anglers. Probably the inability to land the fish is what puts them anglers off..... Besides that from what I have heard it doesn't taste good either.


In Pakistan the distribution is in the warmer waters 8)
