Hello folks.

I am a 30 year old male from germany and i fish since i am 3 years old.

I picked up fishing for real when i was about 14 years old and mostly fished the rhine river.

I worked as afishing guide in norway in 1995. (fjord fishing)

I am a carphunter, really, but i donĀ“t mind barbel ;-)

Because of a lack of time (prebaiting and stuff) i picked up fishing the rhine river 2 months ago.

The Mahseer is a dream which may ccome true in the future and i am here to inform myself properly and maybe share some tips and read your
fishing stories !

Tight Lines !

Tilman

Hi Tilman,

We have another angler from Germany who uses the name Dibu on this site.

He has been to the Cauvery twice. If you click on his profile you can see his site dedicated to Mahseer fishing on the Cauvery.

Welcome aboard.

Hi Tilman.
Welcome to the forum! Would like to try your style of Carp fishing here in India. Dibu tells me that it will work. I am going to give it a shot as soon as i know how to use all this gear that goes into it on our shy species over here.
Mahseer fishing gear is simple and straight forward in comparison.
Check out Dibu's website Mission-Mahseer for more info in German and English on the subject.

I had an Idea a month ago, or so, how to bait paste with the hook exposed.

I named it "Method Hook".

I apply a kind of feeder to the hook by a tube. i scanned it but maybe it`s not good to see, so i drawed it quickly for you
Feel free to ask !
It worked with a barbel in the Rhine river on the first test !

Hi Till (hope its ok if i call you that), thnak sfor your post. I have seen the spring type of feeder before, but why the tube ? Is it to cover the braid tied to the hook ? It does look curved in the shape of the hook. Can you please explain it.
Regards

Hello Tilman,

Welcome to the forum.... if its Mahseer you are after, then you are at the right place. Will be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you get your fish.
I like the idea of your illustration, keeping a bit of the hook exposed at the end of the bait. Am not sure if it will work well here. When we fish we have the hook buried in our bait completely and no part of it is exposed. While fishing like this you often feels 'bumps/taps' which are smaller fish feeding off the bait. There will be a whole lot of smaller fish attacking the bait before a bigger one comes along and takes the bait. With your method the smaller fish could expose the wire framework below the hook that might put off a bigger fish. Just a thought.....

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Hi MM from my limited knowledge of European style carp fishing, i understand that the use an open ended swim feeder stuffed full of indian corn worms etc which is attached to the main line by a thin line. This keeps the smaller fish happy, leaving the biggies to enjoy the boilies.
If you need one, i can provide.
Hey what about your trip to the sea ??
Regards
Owen
