Mahseer fishing

Well I am about 60% decided to make the trip to north India this September.  I am in touch with a very helpful and nice guide via e-mail, and it just sounds amazing.  For me, the main thing is getting the time off work; a lot of the time I can’t really predict what will happen in the next few weeks. If I am really organised I can do it; but I will be away from the lab  for eight days, by far the longest away from my current job, ever.  I think I will talk to the boss next week and then if it looks good, start telling my paise.  If I do go, I will need to start getting my jabs done now.

If you haven’t seen a mahseer before, or want to know what the fishing is like, click the link for this amazing video:

  1. You’ll have to do a lot of sucking up to the boss, eh? Crikey, I wish I could go, too!

  2. Well I am probably going to be fired next March anyway, so I had better make the most of my paid holidays while I can!

  3. Start saving those yens to ope that izakaya!
    Proper fired, end of contract or just too too much fishing time off?

  4. End of contract.

  6. Hi Pierre,
    I am still uncertain about going or not. For one thing it is not cheap, and also I am not sure if I can take enough time off work. But I would love to go! It would be the trip of a lifetime.
    As for the fishing itself, I am pretty ignorant of the exact tackle used beyond the fact it is spinning with big salmon-type rods or flyfishing with specially made local flies. If I were to go this would all be provided for me as part of the guide service.
    I will be sure to recommend the guide to you if I do go and have a good experience.
