Beautiful fish mate.

What bait were you using? At Ramganga they don't really take plugs, spoons or spinners anymore. Was it bread or meat pieces?

Prashant Mate,

Please read a very nice write up titled 'catch and release'. This will explain how to handle a fish, any fish.

Now that you are such a "Master" you should know these things and teach them to all your buddies.


you read what has happened to the tiger in our wonderful country. The same fate lies in store for the Mahseer. Only people like you can stop it.


Thanks mate.

Hi Prashant,
Great pics & great fishing. Can you tell me where in Corbet you fished.
How does one go about it? Who is the contact person?
Prashant I ask you this because I was told by a friend , who checked out in Oct/Nov of 2006, that fishing was not allowed any more in Corbet Park.
This was done to protect the Tiger from poachers. What was the area you fished in.
Are you in advertising?
Carl

What a clonking great fish! Those Corbett Golden Mahseer have the most beautifully coloured scales. :wink:

Had a grand total of two hook-ups using lures/spoons on my five dayer on the Ramganga. Think they like the local dough. :idea:

Hi Prashant
I have fished Corbett ie the park from late seventies throught the eighties. The last time I went there was in 92 but had to walk 10 km through forest to get out of the park to fish as it was banned within the park.
Did you'll fished in the park or outside as if the park has lifted the ban I would go back there to fish.

Correction.

you cannot fish within the park's boundaries.

The fishing starts outside and up river. The Marchula bridge pools are the best as the mahseer are fed there by the villagers. This place also hold some fearsome goonch.

Up stream of the bridge is also good but you have to shell out anothe 550 for a pass as it is another beat.

Downstream there is another great place just before the park boundary starts. It is a nice long walk to this beat but worth it in terms of the flora and fauna.

Please do not fish inside the park. People have been arrested asd it is poaching.

For more information check Vedan's posts.

PS. Any of the hotels will arrange for the fishing permit and a guide.

Please buy it as it is this income that is keeping the villager away from dynamiting the rivers.

Hey that terrain seems familiar to me. I stayed at the Vangat Lodge a bit further from this bridge. :wink:

Image

Maybe a few miles from that area was this part (the name escapes me)which holds sizeable Mahseer, and Goonch which eluded me for one long day. This place seemed to be a popular haunt so I thought someone here might recognise it.

Hi Prashant,
Beautiful fish mate. Take care of them and try to get others to do the same.
I was able to meet up with Ken briefly last night in Delhi. Thanks Ken for taking all that trouble. Sad to know from him that the mahseer in Bhakara are doomed for the table.
Regards
Owen

Hi Prashant,

Thanks for the photos of the spinners.

Looks like a imitation of Mepps.

You definitely need stronger treble hooks, for your spinner.

Should be able to install new treble hooks, with the help of split rings.

That's the problem with Indian spinners sold in most of the shops.
The hooks are just no good.
I have a pile of spinners that i picked up in Kolkata, along with some heavy 4" spoons. The spinners and spoons by themselves are not bad, but don't talk about the hooks. The darn things break off at the shank if they hit a rock in the water.
Replacing hooks on the spoons is possible, but for spinners it can be a nightmare.

Owen,

As Flyfisher mentioned changing the hooks on spinners with the help of a split ring is actually quite easy.

You just cut of the old hook with a strong pair of pliers or a wire cutter and then attach the split ring where the hook used to be then slip the new hook onto the split ring.
