You will notice that there is no introduction to this section yet.

I would like to fill this gap with an introduction from a local angler [or someone who is a frequent visiting fisherman] for every one of the geographical pages on Fatfisherman.com.

The many thousands of anglers now regularly using these pages prefer to read something written by someone who can see the area from an insider's point of view. They know the best spots, not just the ones that first time or overseas visitors usually visit or that are well known outside of the area.

Each introduction carries the e-mail address of the contributor so that anglers can get in touch with them if, for example, they are planning a trip [unless the contributor is unable to do this] so it could bring you extra business if you own a local fishery or tackleshop, charter boat or magazine etc.

Please get in touch if you feel you can contribute an introduction to this page - you don't have to be an expert; I'm not!

Its sister site, Fatbirder.com is regularly used by hundreds of thousands of birdwatchers when planning overseas trips or birding closer to home. That site gets four million hits a month and has a high Google rating because it is an information resource that is both comprehensive and trusted.

Help me make Fatfisherman.com the first point of reference for anyone who wants to go fishing anywhere in the world!

Fishing in Nepal

Tij York Travels
The fishing method for Himalayan Mahseer is quite like fishing for Steelhead or the Salmon, where one is fishing the swing or the drift. The Himalayan Mahseer is a spooky fish, and if one is expecting to catch twenty fish a day then one is asking for disappointment. These Himalayan Rivers are a big fish fishery which offers a shot at the trophy Mahseer, and fewer numbers. The fish here average 5 to 14 lbs, depending on the river you are fishing, and often one can see the monstrous Mahseer, which can grow in excess of 70 lbs, in the crystal clear waters of a spring fed river as the Mahseer swim and feed in the shallow swift water at the mouth of the rapid...

Fishing Trips in Nepal

Tiger Mountain Nepal
The Golden Mahseer (Barbus tor putitora), was once found in high numbers ranging from Afganistan in the west, through India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Burma (Myanmar). Years of dynamiting, netting, poisoning and hydroelectric plants have put this big-scaled cyprinid on the verge of extinction limiting it to certain rivers in the Indian sub-continent, mainly along the Indian Himalaya, and a few in southern India...

Where to fish

Yeti Travels
Some of the popular fishing trips are done in Karnali, Babai valley in the Bardiya National Park. Chitwan also hosts a number of places like the confluence of Seti and Trisuli on the Tribhuvan Highway and also in the confluence of Kaligandaki and Trisuli river. Anglers can try their luck in the clear waters of Pokhara's lakes as well. While Phewa Tal offers some good sport, there is considerable activity and is not the ideal place for a quiet day's fishing. Begnas Tal and Rupa Tal are a better bet. Get out there on any of several local buses that start plying early morning or bike your way there. You can hire a boat and go out to some of the good spots in the lake...
