Golden Mahseer Season has started

The Golden Mahseer spring fishing season has now started in Nepal and in Northern India. We fished the Babai river in Western Nepal last week and caught 10 Golden Mahseer on fly. The river was very low and the fish was mostly feeding on algae and it was very hard to get the fish to take our flies. We saw many fish in the river and in the lower parts some 20lb fish. A crocodile suddenly surfaced 20 meter from my friend Chris when he was out in the middle of a pool casting, a scary experience!
My Doctor friend Dennis from Kathmandu caught a 16.5 kg Mahseer the week before in the Kochi River in the eastern part of Nepal.
