Hi, this is Ali from your Northwestern neighbour, Pakistan.

Ive been viewing the site for a while and am quite impressed at the amount of interest their is for freshwater fishing in India.

Been fishing since I was a kid and since Im from the North I have been lucky enough to do some world class trout fishing. Im in Islamabad most of the time though and around here I mostly fish for mahseer, common carp and singhara.

I look for forward to getting some tips from all of you veteran anglers and maybe I can give some of my own.

Regards,

Ali

You guys are making Ali uncomfortable with all the excessive brotherly love..

Hey Ali, I had read about some good Mahseer fishing in Pakistan what about the saltwater fishing there?

Thanks for the greetings guys.

The freshwater fishing scene in pakistan is not very developed, most people still use handlines. The saltwater scene though is quite well organised and Eljefe has already mentioned the legendary Aziz Agha who has almos single handedly developed and promoted saltwater in angling in Karachi.

From what Ive seen on this forum most of the saltwater fishing you guys have discussed largely tragets inshore species such barracuda, barramundi and threadfins. In Karachi most of the guys go after pelagics a bit further out.

I though live almost a thousand miles from the sea and rarely ever do any saltwater fishing.

I have some free time on my hands these days so Ive been doing some fishing. Went to Mangla Dam today and caught two Singharas of about five pounds each on a Mepps Aglia #5. They werent responding to bait so I picked up my spinning rod and was succesful.

I'll probably go out after mahseer this weekend and if I get anything I'll let you guys know.

Bopanna, thanks for reading my stuff on the PGFA site. I think another PGFA member, Hasham is also on this forum.
