Hi Arun

I flyfish on The Cauvery at Galibore every year and catch a lot of carp.
Some guys who go to the camp fly fish in the north for mahseer. In fact
one of the membwers of this site has a company leading trips -himalayan outfitters I think- were fly is used for mahseer.
Never fished in Mumbai, just bars.

Regards
Kevin

My experience with fly fishing tells me U get smallies there in fly fishing.I have had enough ! If You Wanna go big --its bait or spinning . Fly fishermen are a Class onto themselves - Bridge Vs poker - and if u wanna be part of a gang -then fly fishing is not your story .I express my frank views !
If this forum was in better waters eg Alaska - there fly fishing works - U get King Salmon there on flies and they go big upto 30 Lbs
I wish to remain - - A Baitman and a spinner - and spread warmth

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your reply. If I buy a Fly Rod and a Fly Reel, Would it be easy to cast successfully without a Teacher? I understand that Fly casting is an art which is difficult without a proper guide to teach you.

Secondly, what decides whether you use a wet line or a dry line?

Looking forward to your advice.

Regards,

Arun

Hi Hamdhingra,

Thanks for your frank views on Fly Fishing. I thought that only Fly Fishing would work when fish are not taking spoons, plugs or bait.

Regards,


Arun

Hi Hamdhingra,

If you desire, you can catch a Marlin/Sailfish/Yellowfin/Dolphin on a fly.

Big fly => big fish :D

Flies are no longer limited to insects, but also cover baitfish (as much as 18 inches long).

To catch bigger trout, you have to show them bigger flies. Try baitfish imitations from 1 to 4 inches, and you will be hooking the big trout.

I have heard of a 25 lb Mahseer taken on a 12 inch white streamer fly at Galibore, on the Cauvery river (by a British angler)

Hi Arun,

You catch more fish using bait, but there is a certain pleasure in fly fishing :D
It is very active, i.e you have to cast repeatedly unlike bait fishing.

I do bait fishing, plug fishing, as well as fly fishng.

You can fish baitfish imitation flies along with a plug, or with a sinker on a spinning rod.
Jeen has posted a photo of a fly, fished with a sinker on a spinning rod.

Read this excellent book, to learn fly fishing on your own

http://www.amazon.com/Flyfishing-First- ... 748&sr=8-2

For saltwater flyfishing fishing techniques, Lefty Kreh has a nice book

Hi Sualeh- I gave up fly fishing because I would find my fly and leader hung up on the bush behind.Incidentally mepps makes a fly spinner . I would try your technique the next time I am out for trout .Thanks for the info.

Hi Makarand – its all so interesting and exciting! In the waters here we have not heard anyone catching big. I understand for they are not using big flies or I at least have not seen big ones being used. I got my fly fishing eqpt when I was 12 but somehow never developed a fancy for it.Now though I sit well equipped – I feel it’s a matter of time before I take to it. Thanks for the information-needs to be put into practice.
Cheers…Hamdhingra

Hi Hamdhingra,

When you have bushes behind, use roll casting.
But you will be limited to 30-40 ft casts.

For longer casts, you will need to use a double handed spey rod.

There's no doubt that in any given situation bait/ spinner/ plug will outfish a fly in terms of number and size of fish.

The fly is still my favourite method though!

I think it's about being in the water, working the stream, imitating natural insects. It almost makes it part of the natural process. As you move down (or up) stream you become immersed in nature.

Apologies if I appear to be bordering on lyrics here, but fly fishing is a true passion!
