  1. 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

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    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.
