Hi all,

I am rana from pakistan. don't exactly remember when it all started but i am sure ATISH was quit a kid at that time. It wasn't a great childhood as far as angling/fishing is concerned. but now again after a lay off of around 18 years i am getting back to hooks and line and willing to make a mark. For this, searching around expert heads who are willing to share and guide. I am sure this is a good place to learn. :D

regards

Rana

Hi Rana

welcome aboard. Where do you intend fishing ? If you are planning to go to Rawal lake than you might see me fishing there, along with my kids. See you there and we can discuss a lot of things. Just remember that the eating habits of the fish in Rawal lake have been spoiled so much by the anglers of Rawalpindi/Islamabad that it tends to bite at nothing except that typical charai/masala/chemical as it is locally called. Good luck and catch more fish.

Cheers

Sualeh

Hey! since there are so many fellow anglers from across the border we should start an exchange programme. I would love to be able to catch some of those large grass carp.

Hi Mahaseerkan

We would love to have you here. Most welcome. Can also think of large size Mulleys, Seeng (Singhara) and Goonch, which in certain areas grows over 50 kgs. Cheers

Totally agree Sualeh! having a real tough time at rawal lake. did buy so called chemical from local shops but nothing worked so far, just small 8-10 inch fish on Atta + sugar.

do we really have such big fish left in pakistan? :(

Shaphan, you are a popular figure. 8) Infact we had an email conversation recently through PGFA regarding rod purchase. And I live in pindi. Do we have

Yes Rana

They are sum good sized Fish, Rahu, Grass carp, Muleys and Goonch still in some secluded areas. U just have to run a recon. But have to be carfeul not to expose it to the general public as it will lead to a killing spree.

Rana Sb

The problem at Rawal Dam and Shahpur is that U need to have chari to be sucessful as the anglers have made the fish use to it. At shahpur i havent had any sucess maybe because of not knowing the exact spot. Its best if you know which area to fish

Rana
