About the catch, it was taken home by all our team members.

As anglers we must learn to conserve. We must influence (or try to ) the local department to improve their governance. Put together these two acts should result in more plentiful catches on the a regular basis.

All the best for your cat-fishing, though!

Wish there was a lake near Chandigarh - size 3-4 acres or so, with lots of catfish and snakeheads in it. License would be like Rs.250 - Rs.500 per rod per day. Rod limit at 3 fish per license.

Would be exciting on light spinning tackle with plugs and frogs.

But you would be surprised that most village ponds up to an acre or two in size go for lease for a pittance. We are talking about Rs.10000 or less per year.

Such water bodies not in the villages but near them could become tiny but good fisheries.

But only when demand comes from anglers then the supply will start getting organized.

Rs.2000 rod/day license in Corbett and Rs.40 / day in Bhakra Dam is a good comparison.

Come one the situation is still not as bad for us to move from the wild to the domesticated.... The Mahseer had disappeared from Pune a little over a decade now, however the efforts of a few good men are hopefully going to ensure rivers around Pune will have the Mahseer once again, This sounds super exciting for me as an angler, the main reason i'm discussing this is because discussions and reports from most veteran anglers have led me to believe fishing a farmed fish or a fish that is used to being caught and released regularly and being fed huge amounts of food is not the real thing, some still feel this method of fishing is fruitful and fun! never tried it so will never know but the experience of traveling and trekking to a spot and catching a wild one can't beat anything I've experienced so far. So basically if your really planning to do something for the angling community why don't you get someone like a biologist who knows a lot about fish culture, contact the fisheries department, make a proposal which will get sanctioned and paid for by the govt. and at the end of it you will be making a bigger difference, fish can be bread in cages in the river and released once they grow to a decent size. If that can't be done then the second option will be lakes with stocked fish!.... Just what I thought, don't know if anyone will agree or disagree, however happy to know what most people's views on this would be, with the brink of extinction and depletion of most fishes in Indian waters fresh and salt, what is a better alternative to keep the fishing and the fish alive, breeding them in their natural habitat and surrounding and then letting them go or making lakes and ponds which can be used for fish farming, culturing and angling?

Regards,

Omesh, about three days back I wrote to the Chief Warden-cum-Director Fisheries about the website of HP Fisheries Deptt and the description of Mahseer fishing spots.

I requested that it would be correct if the Deptt updated the website in context of 2011 and deleted all the places were Mahseer are not caught on a regular basis in the minimum size of 2-5 kgs. I explained further that historical data that this spot once help monsters, blah, blah ..... is of no use. Only helps us realise how we have screwed up one of the greatest freshwater game fishing in the world!

I also suggested changes on how info is placed in website to make it very relevant and structured. Fishing spots, seasons, license info, guide info, how to reach, where to stay etc. etc.

It was quite a long mail which I sent.

And do you know what the gentleman in question wrote back to me ? I quote from his reply.



This does not answer any of my questions. However, I will definitely be in touch if something can be bettered for Mahseer fishing in HP.

Good on you mate! [smilie=coolup.gif] I hope the efforts of a few good men like yourself can make the required difference... I wish you best of luck in your future attempts to make the difference be it HP or anywhere in India. I sure hope we all can continue to indulge in the sport of angling with future generations to come...

Best Regards,
