Mobeen Sahib,

Its me Fateh from the PGFA. I have done some flyfishing in Rawal Dam, but ive never been able to get a carp. Just chilwas and very small rohu.

Im sure if you have specially designed carp flies and if you fished from a boast (distance fly casting is very hard) you'd be able to get a few.

I think Cabelas sells carp flies too.

Honestly speaking, I personally would'nt fly fish for warm water species other than as a practice for trout fishing, that too only for small stream trout.

My first love is lure fishing, even if I'm after big trout I'd rather cast a spinner or a plug than a fly.

Its actually funner to fly cast than it is to play fish on fly tackle. Its also full of technicalties, most of the time you cant fish without getting your line tangled in treess several times.

Anyway its better than baitfishing, and in Pakistan (especially North Punjab) almost 80% of the fishing to be had is carp fishing, so fly fishing for carp might be worthwile.

ji Shah ji, carp on flies...


Is it exciting?
wooly bugers, blood worms, cadies, leaches, grasshopers, ants, mulberry are used for carp

In Haro river, i saw people using real mulberry to catch carp
and an algae locally called jhaila to catch Mahseer by using fly fishing tech.

Mobeen,

I used to catch trout on mulberries, shetoot as we call them. This was in kashmir a long time ago. Trout would gather under mulberry trees waiting for the fruit to fall into the water. The trick was to cast with a 'plonk' under the tree and let the bait flow down naturally. And bang!

Not Flyfishing but Fruitfishing!

Fig is the first name which comes to mind and the use of it as bait is wide spred. As ken mentioned Shahtoot is used by many anglers in Kashmeer as told to me by Dr. Ghai. (You know him ken-dont you)

Regards,

Ali

To All, thanks for shairing,

Dried mulbery nd figs are available at dry fruit shops, may be it work,


Fakhir, I never used boilies, but I think they will work on slow flowing waters, My friend Amir Riaz once used his famous boilies (Shaphan call them gulab jamen and chum chum :D ) in Tarbella lake, but no results
