Default 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 ****** and the fish gave a good account for its size.

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

Hello Harsh,

It would be helpful if you were to establish a photobucket account or another web hosting picture site. Then you can transfer images directly onto your thread so we can view them without using the facebook link.

Myself, I do not keep a facebook account and I don't use links to other sites like that. In this I may not be alone here, if you have a photobucket account but don't understand the process for posting images just send a PM to me and I will send directions.

Good to see you posting,

Ard

Nice fish, and I'd imagine some beautiful landscapes surrounding the areas you're fishing in!

Hi! Guys,

Diver Dan, theboz, oarfish , mcnerney, jpbfly, Hardyreels, gatortransplant

Thanks for liking the pictures on Facebook.

25 lb Golden Mahseer was caught on Spin tackle using a Rapala Lipless Crankbait (Rainbow Trout Pattern).

Ard, my intention was to post pictures directly on the forum but I received a technical error 5 times and then gave up.


Regards
Harsh Rana
