I came across this site while surfing for some mahaseer sites and I am in awe of the Bopanna's commitment and perseverance to build a higher angler's experience in India ..Keep up the good work Bopanna. I recently got into fishing as a "work alternative" and I love it ......... looking forward to having some great fishing trips ahead

Went to Galibore a few months back ......loading a few snaps that my friend Prats took while we were there……. got some pink carp to open the account...........

Love to listen to some pointers from you anglers out there!
Cheers :-)

Welcome Phil. True what you say about Bops. It takes dedication and the giving of one's time to make it happen.
Cheers,
Glenn

Hi Phil,
Great to see new anglers from Bangalore.
From looking at the pictures, a couple of suggestions which i hope you will take in the right spirit.
Never unhook a fish on rocks. It is best done in the water.

Never hold the fish up by fishing line or a stringer (that's the way kids do it, even though mahseer don't bite).
Support the fish with your hands under its body like you would have seen in many of the pictures posted on IA.

We have lost a lot of fish in the Kaveri due to careless handling, and things may just be turning around.
We all need to fish responsibly to see that big game angling on the Kaveri will still be around long after we are gone.
Regards
Owen

Hi! Owen thanks for the heads up.... that won't happen again .........just that I didn't know better. Thanks again. Only respite was that the Ghili was confident that the fish were released with out any visble damage to skin or mouth.

Hi Phil, great that you took this in the right spirit. The gillie could have been a newbie too. For more on fish handling check out Steve's post. http://www.indianangler.com/viewtopic.php?t=754

Nice one Phil :lol:
Use of Stringers - we have been discussing this on the forum for some time now, and Steve in his article has mentioned the same.
I use a stringer myself, for very short periods of time and only if really required. Will try to stop using them altogether.

Please switch to very soft cotton ropes if you must. There are other very soft ropes used for mountain climbing i am told which are even better than cotton ropes.
I know the guides use nylon ropes, but they are very unsuitable for the purpose as they can damage the gills.
Happy fishing
Regards
Owen

Hi Owen
that fish must have been out of the water for not more than 15 seconds ... that why all of us did not take a trophy shot...... however I get you drift on the rope ......will hunt for suitable climbing rope here in banglore ....perhaps in wildcraft

Phil, don't use a rope at all. I don't see why one is necessary if you have a landing net.
