My best result so far has been with an Abu Atom spoon( which was taken by a Mahseer as soon as it hit the water.. Never saw that spoon again..

I grew :D up using spinners and calcutta & dehra doon spoons fishing for Mahaseer in the Ramganga in the park and caught very few 'cause inevitably I was there from 20 Dec to 5 Jan and teh water was cold and teh fish wouldn't take....

Howver, last couple of years have been plugin with some success and a lot of work and fun and belive that in some waters, the rapala jointed and jointeds in general are the plugs that work well and working them is phenomenal :D

The current Abu Ataoms are like the ones in the pic, but the one I was using was silver, and had the fish scale design on the bottom half. Something similar to the Bilnker YAD in the below website.

voted for mepps aglia, but it's not my favourite lure. That vote would have to go to 'flicker spinner' fly spoon by Hildebrandt. No good for big fish, but i reckon it's the best way of catching mahseer on a fly rod ...

Hasham,

Is there a weedless version of Abu Atom as well?

Yes there is. Some time ago, a guy gave me a weedless Atom with the treble situated mid-way along the spoon, and two wireguards on each side.. If the fish takes, the treble will slide down a wire stem to the 'normal' position: below the spoon. This model goes way back to the Sixties, I think.

Recently, Abu made a re-run of this unique model. Unfortunately, you can't change the bronze treble for a stronger one, unless you're good at "re-wiring" the thing.

My Kali valley shikari just called up. I asked him the poll question. He says dead, roast hindu best. Next best, dynamite. Next, deadbait. You have to understand he's been at it on a subsistence basis for the last 50 years and is just 3 years into C&R for mahseer...

I can't decide between plugs and flyspoons. I guess few, big fish on plugs (depending upon pattern, size, timing) or many small ones (under 20lbs) on flyspoons.

Cheers

V.

Hehehehehe! Good one Vedan!
Just heard a Wasi member tell me at the river that he caught two 10 lb mahseer on a spoon with ragi on the trebles. I wonder why he bothered using the spoon at all. He could have used a chilwa with a ball of ragi in its mouth instead.
