Dear Friends,

Can you suggest the some good baits for freshwater canals with fast flow or rivers with fishes like Rohu, Catla, Mirgal, Wallago, Murrel and lot more species.

We are using earthworm & wheat flour.

Thanks, Salim

Oh, what sort of rig are you using? Ive tried fishing at this canal nearby which has very fast flow, but every time i cast, the whole setup gets pushed by the force and reaches the surface, as in i can see the bait, even though im using a pretty heavy weight. Dunno what to do :/

Here's a suggestion for fast canals. Most of the local anglers use a rig called 'Langdi', which translates to one legged or lame. It is real simple.

Tie you hook or hooks directly to the main line. Don't add any weight. Tie a big enough rock with cotton string. The thread should be thin and easily breakable. Now tie this 'weight' to your main line 6 to 9 inches above your hooks. The length of the cotton string should allow the rock to hang below the hooks.

What this rig does is simple. It keeps your bait and hooks in one place above the ground. When you strike the cotton thread breaks and you are connected directly to the fish.

I will try and paste an illustration soon .

i think i got the right idea. But the kind of fish ill be getting are pretty small, would this work for the same. I mean they might just nibble at the bait or something, not swallow it whole so the cotton thread might not break. Thank you

This work well with fish of any size (except the tiddlers). The thread breaks when you strike.

i did a lot of fishing in fast flowing canals

just attach ur hooks to the mainline and add some weight around 3 inch above the hooks and remember to press the lead weight with plier or by teeth check the setup in flowing water ur bobber should remain 1/2 inch above water ( i use peacock feather 4 to 5 inch).

if u still find difficulty then do let me know

It works

in flowing water "green yellow chila" is a very good bait. carps swallow it very fast


regards
Manish

i don't know the english word for it but u can find these "chila" on the bank of canals and rivers. its greenish in color and sometimes yellowish green due to rise in temprature.

I used it for rohu mirgal and tilapia and it works better then any other bait in flowing water.

Note: u have to use ur brain to wind "Chila" on ur mainline covering the hooks.

I think what Manish means by Chaila is Moss. If used properly, Moss is one of the best bait for Rohu in flowing water. It is a standard bait for local fisherman fishing Ganges in my native place. It produce some serious big fishes.

Regards,

Ali.
