The year 2002 saw the destruction of a monument in kashmir.the landmark 50 year old tourist reception centre in srinagar was attacked and burnt down by terrorists.the angling fraternity suffered a huge loss as the dept. of fisheries was located on the first floor and all the records were lost except a few.the archives in that building housed photos of record trout caught in various beats/streams of priceless history.(in black and white of course).one of the most beautiful and reserved only for v.i.p.'s stream is the bringhi in south kashmir.it has witnessed chief ministers,governars, chief justice, and similar ranks flying down there in helicopters to fish.
I have had the privilege to fish EVERY stream in kashmir.its something i cherish very deeply.my bond with the kashmir waters is inseperable.i know every beat and stream and high altitude lake like the back of my hand.
over the past 25 years i have seen many a person trying to get a permit to a beat.without prejudice most have been a cheap tourist type trying to be a wannabe.in my experience angling in kashmir is almost surreal.
i generally like to revisit certain beats every year.bringhi upper is right there in my top ten.its like an ode to be here.this time of the year the waters are perfect.the level,clarity,swiftness,and no rain are just right factors.
started casting a little late at 10 am.my old trusted gillie bashir assisting.used a dt4 flyline with a 5wt rod.flies uesd were invicta on the main and beadhead stonefly on the dropper.
over the years bringhi has fished very well with average size pounders and above.i was dismayed at the average size this year.half pounders and below.disappointed i asked bashir wats wrong.apparently too many cheap tourist type wannabes have been issued licence for the same.its a pity that the dept. to generate some revenue has closed its eyes.its not the case with bringhi alone.all the streams are being looted by the tourist and the hanji houseboat owners.these archtypal had no access to a sport reserved for the upperclass.i hope the dept. rectifies the same soon.
more reports to follow from kashmir..................

my angling lodge.










a nice rainbow trout for the grill.



the bringhi stream.



nearby mountains.


me and my gillie bashir



the catch. all browns.



TO BE CONTINUED..............

Nice catch!

dude! I'm middle class! does that mean I am not supposed to go fishing?

No offense but I think its a sport for anyone who can be patient enough to take to it!

Being of a specific caste! be it upper middle or lower is not in the hands of an individual! even a lower class individual if passionate can be fishing somewhere....

No offense again! Its just hard for me to relate angling/fishing to be a sport of the upperclass.

No heart feelings mate.

Regards,

omesh, the issue is the way the catch has become considereably smaller and less due to over fishing.earlier it was restricted to a few known anglers and officials .that way the dept. regulated the permits strictly.now it has allowed anyone to fish.i dont come in the general/middle category.this is kashmir.only influential people were allowed to fish at one time.if you read carefully i've said upperclass not uppercaste.so for me its a disappointing thing that something reserved exclusively for me has been breached by commoners.

Nice location and great fish congrats on that. Just as said when it comes to class a bit sour thing to say. But from my point of view which ever class a person belongs to but being a responsible and ethical is more important.
