Hi V.singh,
I caught the sal at sukan nulla and the boka at upar dikri. It lies inside the nameri national park.

Santosh, I was visiting the site regularly but my own broadband connection was down and I was a lazy person to visit the cyber cafes freequently. Regarding the boka, I am not very good at fish identification. The scales are almost as big as the mahseers but the lips are smaller. maybe owen can do that job better.

Bops, we have to raft down the jia bhoreli river from different locations. On this particular trip we started off from 16th mile camp to the potasali camp. The potasali camp is the pick up point. From the potasali camp, we have to drive 2km to reach the eco camp where the tented accomodation are there. Nobody is allowed to stay inside the national park. So we have ti tie the rafts on top of the veichles. It was the potasali camp you had seen. And the raft is a duckback.

Cheers,
Apoo

Great set of pictures there Apoo! The boka looks very carplike and it has a two-tone colouration like the northern mahseer. Big beautiful hazelnut scales to match 8) Thanks.

Hi Guys,

I may be wrong, but the boka looks very much like the brown mahseer or Lissocheilus hexagonolepsis (known as kajra in certain parts of northern India and Pakistan?). It's called 'kejor', here in Malaysia.

My reasons: brownish tint on the scales; shorter gill plates. The underside of the mouth will be the real evidence: there is no separate median lobe, at te centre part of the lower lip.

Great pics Apoo, the scenery is simply breath taking. Must have been a helluva trip. On such beautiful location, it does not really matter weather you catch a fish or not. If you catch one, its a bonus.
Like Shaphan, I also dont know about sal and boka. Can you please give some details.
Regards
Sualeh

Hi Arun

That was not my boat. I dont know the price of the duckbacks. Some of the people in the eco camp says it costs around 25 to 45 grands according to its size.


Hi shaphan and Sualeh,

As soon as I get some information regarding the Sal and the Boka, I will post it. I will try my best to get some details of these fishes from the veteran anglers.

Cheers,
Apoo

Hi Sualeh,

The Arunachal Torism site mentions that Sal is Murrel and BOKA is Katli.

Now we all know 'Murrel' is Snake Head but I do not know what is Katli.

Can someone give more information about BOKA?

Regards,


Arun

Thanks Arun and Tathagata, apparently, sal is what we call sowl here in Punjab (Channa marulias or the great snakehead). Katli, as per the list of Assamese fish, is apparnetly a type of mahseer which i never heard of before. Thanks buddy
Regards
Sualeh
