Fishing and Species
The fishing is primarily for Golden Masheer. All of the fishing is done by wading, with rafts used to float the river and access water. Anglers use singlehanded and two handed rods. The water is usually clear, so it is easy to spot the Masheer. The gear, techniques and flies have evolved in the the last 15 years to make the larger fish a realistic possibility. A selection of Rio's MOW tips from intermediate to faster sinking should be in all angler's bag of tricks. The fishing is not dredging as the fish move to and eat the fly.

Fly fishing in the foothills of the Himalayas for the fabled Golden Masher is definitely worth the journey. While this is very exotic it will be familiar to anglers who have swung flies for Steelhead, Atlantic Salmon, Sea Run Browns, Pacific Salmon or Golden Dorado. Masheer eat other fish and are predators. Fishing is on rivers in the Northern part of India where it borders with Nepal in Uttarakhand Province. It is quite remote, with small villages and wild.
At no time during this trip do you need to figure out your own transport, food or accommodations. It has all been set up by the experienced staff and owner of Himalayan Outback Misty Dhillon. He is a passionate angler that knows hospitality and attention to details enroute and on the river.
Once you land in Delhi, you will be met and taken to a 5 star Hotel. The groups are 4 to 6 anglers. The guides are local and can really cast and fish. They really know the water and are passionate about fly fishing for Masheer.
