I referred "The Rod In India" where H S Thomas claims that the fish (Notopterus Chitala) grows upto 4 - 5 feet in length. Vernacular names listed there are Seetul, Chitala, Chitul, Moie, Mohi, Moh, Gundun and Bunnah. They take lures readly and have a habbit of rolling like Tarpon.

Rajat, the author also makes a point of mentioning that the belly is uncommonly rich and well flavoured.

The Cheetol or Clown Fish, does not belong to the Sheath Fish Family. The Walago Attu (Great White Sheath Fish) belongs to the family Siluridae (includes most catfish), while Knife Fish belong to Notopteridae .

You are right that they taste great. Most of its bones are in the hump and the belly portion makes a great fillet with just one bone. The Cheetol is sold anywhere between Rs500 to Rs1000.00 per Kg in certain Mumbai markets you may find one in the Spinach chain of stores.

They normally are found in clear non polluted waters with good water plants. They are great to hook on light tackle.

We call it a Sital. Is it not the featherback? We buy this fish during Bihu festival. A delicacy foe the people of Assam.

Now we Bongs should find that address of the Pond in Pune. Apoo it is a feather back you are right. Hamour hit the pond with light tackle you will be able to enjoy a good fight and a really good meal after that.
