Himalayan Mahseer Fly And Lure Fishing

Hi! Guys,

Me and my friend Sabir, returned from a productive fishing session on Gobind Sagar Lake in Mid- Febuary.

We didn't expect much in terms of results due to the prevalent cloudy-low pressure conditions. And managed just a 3 lb Golden Mahseer on the first day.


Next morning, the sky was bright and sunny and as I was preparing to cast my Fly rod, Sabir hooked on to something that made his knees tremble....I was on a boat about 30 yards from him and I had the landing grip in my bag. By the time I got to Sabir, the fish was still running and in a few more minutes, this 25 lb beauty was landed...


Now, I made a cast from my Fly rod close to the same spot where the 25 lber was hooked , I got an 8 lb Mahseer to bite my Black/Yellow Wooly Bugger and the fish gave a good account for its size.


All the fish where released after reviving them in a keeping net.

Easily the most exotic locale that I've seen a fly fishing report from on this site. Pretty cool. Thanks for sharing.
