I was happy to see my good friend Junaid keeping the maral interest alive so I thought I'd chip in too before this worthy section goes MIA. I tried pulling his leg but he ignored the bait....Maybe I should've mentioned Okuma!! Can you hear fingernails on the chalkboard?

The following pictures were take at Bheemeshwari where 4 of us (Junaid, Bharat Reddy, Cauvery Cowboy, and self) landed 227 maral in 4 days. I caught 89 but I was fishing for maral full time (9am-1pm, 4pm-5:30pm) while the others wasted a lot of time coarse-fishing for that other fish in the Cauvery. We brought back about 15 maral to camp per the request of the manager so other guests could enjoy the great masala fry they do. The rest were released. The biggest was 4.5kg by Junaid.

Image
Part of a morning's bag headed for the kitchen. 3-4kgs each

Image
Junaid and self. Another day, another fry-up. Again 3-4kgs each

Image
Self, Cauvery Cowboy, Bharat Reddy, Lee Van Cleef (yes, the same badass from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly)

Santosh, in answer to your request for equipment used I direct you to my post on the tackle I use: http://www.indianangler.com/viewtopic.p ... ight=#9758

Re the lure, here is another post of mine: http://www.indianangler.com/viewtopic.p ... highlight=

Eljefe, what?... no comment about Lee Van Cleef? BTW, Boddingtons is old hat...when in the mood for ale I reach for Greene King's Abbot's Ale.

El Jefe,

I think we should have a competition to see how many on the forum recognise him since even you don't ...Bopanna, of course, is excluded from this competition since he knows everyone.

Who is the handsome brute on the extreme right in the group photo, aka Lee Van Cleef (The "Bad" from The Good, The Bad and the Ugly)?

Clue: He's a terrible maral fisherman!!

Mm
