Can anyone tell me the colour and size of frogs and crabs near Galibore. I'm trying to create some imitations for "fly" fishing. At the moment I have one person told me the crabs are brown another has said green. Don't know about the frogs yet.

Thanks

John

Emerger, you wll find a photo of a crab in Flyfishers article "mahseer fishing on the cauvery (dec 06)" in the images section. they can grow to five inches across the back! underneath the colour is a pale orange. sometimes the guides will peel off the carapace to reveal the egg sacs which are bright orange, this is the most deadly way of presenting the bait.Carriuppa a guide at galiborai has ben known to fish pieces of orange peel moving through white water and has caught mahseer on them!! best of luck, Rich

Thanks guys, very useful.

I should have searched the site more carefully, the photo of the crab really was just what was needed - a picture is, after all, worth a thousand words.
