Hi everyone

Camping, fishing and trekking have been my passion since childhood. Unfortunately commitments are such that am not able to pursue these activities much. About a month ago (end of Oct-Nov 08) I was camping and fishing in Mandakini rivers (near Rudraprayag) with some friends. The size of the fish over there is small. If it is small (less than palm size) we release. Nevertheless, the bigger ones were about half kg. We had a wonderful time.

Pictures of fishing in Govindsagar lake and Bhakra (by Harry) were wonderful. I would definitely go there in the not very distant future.
I wonder if there are any spots near Delhi...... how about Sanjay Lake, Badkal Lake ...or even Yamuna.

Hi there,

welcome to the forum.

The confluance of Alakh Nanda and mandakni is a very Hot spot for big fishes. I do not know that you are allowed to fish there or not now.

Regards,

Ali

You are right Sir, I think the entire stretch from Deoprayag to Rudraprayag is hot spot. We have never taken any permission to fish in these areas since we've seen locals fishing by using loops which they fix overnight.

Thanks everyone once again.

Bundolo

Yes I know, this loop fishing known as Phandi is rampant in Himanchal and Uttranchal. I had seen a guy take out a Goonch of 15 Kg. from the rapids below Kalesar forest rest house. :roll:

It is nothing but sistamatic netting of water body on a mini scale. :(

Regards,

Ali.

Hi and welcome to the forum
When locals net it is with the knowledge of the local forest and fisheries departments. But when genuine anglers want to fish it is illegal and anglers are fair game for extortion.
Regards

These are plug eating nooses made of bits of really thick line. I have lost so many lures to them it is sickening. What we do when we find these phandas is cut them up into small bits and burn them.

When a piece of net or this loop (Phandi) is abandoned in any water body, it’s a great danger to the fishes.
Once my self and Santo, while fishing in upper Vaitarna, came across a small fish, a loop of net embedded in its body. The loop has gone so deep that it was impossible to remove it. After lot of try the effort to free that fish was abandoned and the fish was given to a small boy who very gladly accepted the gift.

The indiscriminate fishing of all water bodies with nets which does not allow even the small fishes to escape are the real cause of depleting fish stock through out India. There is an urgent need for a collective voice of sanity to demand the ban of such methods; otherwise our next generation will only hear the stories of abundance of great fishes which once lived in those water bodies.

Regards,

Ali.
