thanks for your tips, i have looked at pancheshwar for fishing and it is a good spot from what i can gather...but again it has a lot of anglig pressure, and i feel that although each year the big fish move through this area, its not the place toget the real special days fishing, maybe its just me, but to go and fish somewhere that is on a plate is not for me...i love a challenge,
but what i know of the north is you get on chance each day at the big one...and if you fluff that your gone, i have caught two good sized fish now, and both of theese were on the first cast of the morning, and each time it was the last day of my trip....now i think if i had not fished for the first few days and just walked and closely watched the fish my cath might have been better....but the fish almost tease you in the shallow crystal waters below, as they twist and turn in the bright sunlight, and you get the most amazing colours when they tightly shoal together, like a giant golden carpet thay covers the bottom of the river...truley breathtaking.
and this i think is where i go wrong, rather than whatching the moods of the fish and where the biggest fish hang out, its in with the spinner and wollop, a 5lb fish grabs the spinner, but dont get e wrong i love catching small fish but it a bit frustraing some days, when you can see a fish of 5ft and keep hooking fish of 5lb.
a place id did see some very big fish was Harda...this was the first place i visited, a small town on top of a hill, the people there were so cool and i had such a good time, it was like being at home for a short while, but the river below there was a temple with a great old priest "baba" what a great guy, he let me look in the temple pool there and guys , believe me when i say this, im 6ft 3" tall, and the fish in this pool made me look small, and all along the river , it was really fast and pushed its way throught narrow sections 5ft deep and opended up into huge corner pools where you would find 30ft of water, this was ture mahser country and not another angler in sight, not with rod and line anyway. so i think there are some places where the fish are hugh, and people dont go...?
has anyone else ever fish from Harda and then onwards down stream to Juna bridge and then onwards to another small village and then to bikysen
if not it a great piece of river, but make sure there are a few of you, me and my friend had a bit of trouble crossing the river, deeper and faster than we expected...!!!
any ideas on new uncharted venues, just throw some river names in the pot and i will start looking, maybe places on the ganges...?
not sure about the fishing...i know its a holy river and therfore i would not be allowed to fish...not sure.
anyway i will stop ranting now, take care guys and i look forward to hearing from you
