Excellent Trout.
Sure must have had lots of fun catching them.
Did you try the Mepps #0 and 1?

Good catch mate.

Trout is a trout for me. Mahseer is a different game altogether. This fish look beautiful. Slender body small in shape looks like they are hand painted. Just look at the fish, you have captured them very well. Watch this movie called The Underwater World of Trout. Not the best one, but good coverage.

Congrats once again!

What is your name once again ??

@ravinp58

yes i tried DAM 0 but not 1 and caught three fish on mepps no. 2 dotted red.
That was the one that a local chose from my box saying "many phoren ppl use this"

@kanwar76

normal uglystick freshwater spinning rod 15 lb.
actually spinning is officially not alowed in kashmir but the ghilies and fisheries dept at pahal dont mind if u pay enough and neither do i have fly fishing rod nor do i know how to do it.

@teritex
i m Chetan.
ya the fish are great but i think i need to learn fly fishing as it may be much more fun for trout. with a spinning rod its just too easy to be called a game.

but the place is awsome.......

May be that is the reason you didn't enjoy trout fishing much. Try a light spinning rod next time, I am sure you will enjoy more that you did this time. BTW you are lucky to fish at "Heaven on earth". I am dreaming of doing this since ages.. :D

Keep on doing it buddy

congrats on the fish...you should try trout on the flyrod with a flyline...a lighter size say #4 or #5...brilliant.

must head to Pahalgam myself soon..i firmly believe there's a 6 pounder brown waiting for me there :)

Just noticed that the center line of dots is all red...have never gone for trouts...graduation to this level is still some months away I think.

Nice catch...amazing pics.

Did you have any army contact here? If not, what about the stay and safety?

Hi Rookie, What an amazing looking little trout. It's great to see pictures of fish coming from Kashmir. I look forward to seeing more of your images.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.
