I used to leave the house at 4 am .. ride my speed king cycle with the rods tied on the bar , Haver sack with Sandwiches . Reel , Assorted plastic boxes with home made lures with home made trebles . long staff Gaff with a large mustad hook ( also doubled as a walking stick ) , Empty plastic bottles to fill with water from Kashas house or the local well near the end of the road ...with the damn stary dogs chasing me ... and then cross the ferry and try to patao the BEST bus conductor to allow me to hold onto my cycle outside the bus at the rear door for the bus ride to the Madh naka and then once again get chased by the strays .. have chai at Kasha's house and start casting in the dark ... Fluff those were the days

Yes i very much believe there are some big barras yet lurking around.About barnacles growing on fish who else can give a better reply but a diver.I have spent thousands of hours underwater working and never seen a single fish with barnacles on it.Barnacles are often seen on crabs, whales, boats, rocks and on the shells of sea turtles. Although some species of barnacle are parasitic, most barnacle species are harmless, because they are filter feeders and do not interfere with an animal's normal diet and do not harm that animal that they live on in any way. Many species of barnacle are so harmless that in fact, an animal that is covered in them, may not even notice!.........The story of the Barra with barnacles surfaced in the late 70s and was narrated by Mr Ivan valles a keen Angler who was supposed to have hooked this big barra of Manori point and lost it just before he could gaff the "Beast".That fired my imagination as a kid and every weekend i spent in pursuit of the monster.I caught loads of fish but no monster,it was estimated to be 125 lbs plus,well with the yrs gone by it should be 500lbs plus. :lol:

Hi Niel,

I was great seeing pictures of good ol Rolly..brought back memories. Truly the good old days.

Ivan's Barnacled Barra and the porpoise you fowled hooked, parabolic rods and timing the running ravas..

Even recalled Vincent’s story where he used to tell about one of his mates who claimed that a ravas feeding so close to the water where it leaped out and slapped him on the chest with the tail …HA HA

Omesh. When I was a boy, I used to be able to look down from the coastal cliffs and see shoals of mackerel (ours are similar to yours but quite a bit bigger) chasing small fish right up to the beach.
On really calm days, I could look down and see individual bass (not dissimilar to Barramundi but smaller) hunting over the sand. Those days are gone. There are still fish there but in much smaller numbers because of the greed of the politicians and the fleet operators.
With some species like the Atlantic cod where the fishing takes place outside the public gaze, entire population have totally collapsed due to consistent fishing at politically decided levels way above the quota's recommended by fisheries scientists and they aren't showing any signs of recovery.
I don't blame the individual fishermen (for the most part) because as you point out, most are just work a day guys doing what they can to feed their families but as I have watched sea angling around the British coast deteriorate massively in my lifetime, you will have to forgive me if I occasionally point out what may be about to happen to others who currently do have sea fish resources.
It takes political will to save the stocks in the face of a promise of quick cash and that is unlikely to be present without some degree of prompting from the people who mandate the politicians and who's birthright is at steak.

About a day back I was watching BBC and there was a programme covering Iceland on why Iceland has retained its currency and not shifted to Euro.

The main reason pointed out was that, today, the biggest GDP contributor to Iceland's economy is commercial saltwater fishing. The presenter went on to say that Iceland had maintained its sea fish stocks at sustainable level while Euro zone policies had emptied the European seas of fish.

I had assumed that the green movement in Europe was very strong and wrong environmental policies were just not allowed.

Though the bright side is that we all forum members are discussing such issues and are aware that there are many people out there who are as concerned as we are.

If something can be done to stop fishing by those giant trawlers who's mandate is to empty the sea's and fill the pockets of their owners and then move on the the next lucrative business then the sea can be saved.

Local (small mechanized) boats can do some damage but nothing compared to these monsters.

BTW, on hearing the sea report it looks that managing Mahseer waters is much simpler. Its boils down to patrolling, educating and restocking the critically effected areas.

Bobby i have only heard of him never met or seen the man but have a book which belonged to him. The print is some where of the late sixties and purchased by him in 1975.

Big Barra Mario! I hope you catch some as bigger or bigger!

Real cute sons you got Santosh! I fondly recall the Beach boys post! I know it got a little highjacked with the number of fish caught etc. but none the less it was gr8 before all of that happened!

Regards,

Omesh
