The Magic of India's Mahseer



family or if you prefer a 5-star hotel and the next day, continue onto the Himalayan Outback Camp.

Accommodations at the camp are local style huts containing fine British Campaign furniture: bed, table, chairs, cupboard and luggage rack. Each hut has a private verandah and sitting area and an en-suite bathroom with running water. Fishing is along the Western Ramganga River as it snakes its way through a beautiful broad valley close to the Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve which is framed by the stunning lower Himalayan ranges and is filled with mixed tropical forests and tall elephant grass along the river banks.

The Western Ramganga's proximity to the tiger reserve has helped preserve its rich biodiversity to the fullest extent offering some of the finest possibilities for fishing and fly-fishing for these legendary game fish, the Golden Himalayan Mahseer. This location offers sightfishing opportunities for both spinning and fly-fishing for these majestic creatures.

A sight-fishing pursuit for the Golden Himalayan Mahseer is perhaps the ultimate sporting experience in the world of freshwater fishing. We call these fish "the freshwater equivalent of a Permit". All the fishing is wading / bank fishing, crossing the river whenever necessary. Every angler has a guide. Guests enjoy hearty packed-meals that are served on riverside wherever necessary. In addition to fishing for the Golden Himalayan Mahseer you may even catch some Indian Trout and Kalabaans. The Western Ramganga is also host to a pre-historic catfish called the Goonch - these fish are said to be the only catfish in the world with teeth and can be caught by ledgered dead bait.

Dates for the trip are October 07-17 and offer 6 days of fishing. The cost is $3775 per person plus airfare to New Delhi. Call Judith at FishQuest for details 1-888-891-3474 or e-mail fishquestjudith@aol.com.
