I suppose you guys all know where the shops are in Bangalore, could you let me know?
Or could you take me there, Bops?

Can you pick up good mahseer hooks there, or should I bring a lifetimes supply of overpriced Owners from UK?

Owen,

If you look at Rustam's post with the Rohu, there's one pic that caught my eye. It's the one of the closeup of the Rohu's mouth. That's a really small hook.... the one's we had bought to catch Chilwa from Olympic sports years ago. I think they're called 'egg hooks'.... maybe mistaken here :shock:

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

I have some small tungsten hooks, but from my experience of the last fish that pulled free of the small Kamasan hook i was using, i realize that the fish in the lake like the rohu not only have small mouths, but also the tissue inside is pretty soft because i think their diet is mostly from the weeds and worms in the water. I did take a peek down there with my brother while we cleared out a swim last december. Infact Robby spent the best part of an afternoon cleaning up the bottom.

They do not have too much of mussels and snails in their diet, which toughen up their mouths. so although the hooks need to be rather small, they also need to be very sharp and of a slightly thicker guage than the skinny ones i was using, so that they can penetrate deep, and not just hook the surface skin in the mouth, but stay put in some thicker tissue.
This is just an idea, and therefore i am on the look out for some suitable hooks.
Maybe you can check with Prathap on the kinds of hooks that he has been successful with.
Regards
Owen

Rustam,

Thanks for sorting that out. Nothing speaks louder than photographs and some of yours are the loudest :wink:

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Yeah i have plenty of similar hooks, but scaled down last visit and tried out some really small ones. Probably a big mistake.
Regards
Owen
