Thanks guys,

They really do fight and this one was no exception. since it was a first for me of this size, was quite an experience. It gave a nasty bite to a freind of mine while taking the hook out. Got to be carefull with the guys, they have a set of teeth that can do some damage.

Hi Ken,

That was excellent information about the fish. Locally it is called Valaga. All those caught by the fishermen are exported to calcuta. They really seem to like it.

Niether have I. With the fishermen and their nets at work 24x7, not much chance for one that size. The maximum I have got was about 7 kg ever since. But always hoping...
cheers

thanks guys,

and since someone mentioned we all like stories, I shall try to recollect. It was some time ago, a nice hot day in the summer and summers here do get quite hot. Myself and a three friends set out to the dam for some fishing. We got a few rohu from the top of the dam using poori, fishing on the surface. Then I moved down to where the sluice of the dam was and started casting with about four worms on the hook. What happens usually is that the current normally takes you in to the sluice and you have quite a time getting it back and when this big cat took my bait I naturally asumed it was the damn sluice again. but quickly realised that the line was heading to the center of the dam and not the sluice. The sound from the reel was fantastinc and I knew I had my first big one. I first made sure to slowly move away from the sluice and then realised we had forgotten our landing net. Still no idea of how big the fish was. It would take my line and go. I would reel her in and off she would go again. No idea how long it took, but every second was worth it. Finally got it to the shore and seeing the size had no idea what to do and one of my friends quickly too his shirt off and pulled the beauty out. The local fishermen were right there with their mouths wide open. They always told me that the big ones could not be caught with a rod. They still talk of it today.

Thanks for the writeup friend. We all know the feeling of hooking a big one. It alwase is a joy of landing something like your fish on a rod and watching the wonder on each and every local is really great.

Catching Rohus on PURI, wow :!: . Keep it up and keep on posting.

Regards,

Ali.

At the mention of big Mulley's, in Pakistan also Mulley are one of the bigger fish one can still catch despite all the commercial netting activity going on.

Posting a couple of catches of my angling buddies of Mulleys in the last year or so.

Mulley at Punjnad by Amir Gill. Gill's not in the Pix becoz the mulley is one fish he doesn't like handling :lol:

Over here if this guy is not on your fishing list then you are the odd one out.

A matter of taste.
