locally this fish is called KATLI , these r the most common fish is testa river, though mahseer is also ther but left in only few pockets. they r on verge of extinction as so many dams r coming up.

In assamese, Boka means mud. But the fish is not related in any way to mud. They are found in clean waters. In Nameri, people has hooked this fish with spinners and plugs. Some has used live baits to catch it too.

Congratulations "rod n reels"...

between a rock and hard place gav ;) lemme know if and when you're headed this way and how many days you can spare. will plan accordingly. and to stimulate your calcutta carp muscles we could do a couple of lakes as well / instead.

Neolissochilus hexagonolepis max out at 40 cm reportedly, good tasting too, byfar the most abundant of carps in the Teesta and adjoining rivers of the Siwaliks.
