Fly Fishing for Golden Masheer
An Adventure in the Wilds of Northern India
Just because the Masheer are remote doesn’t mean they are always easy to catch. As with many species the smaller fish are easier than the wise monster ones. Two handed and singled handed rods are used for fly fishing Masheer. Floating and sink tip lines are used with flies ranging from dries to larger baitfish imitations. The fish will move at night providing an added crazy angling experience.
The rate is $4000 per person for the 12-day/11-night itinerary. This is based on two anglers traveling together and sharing a guide. It includes two nights’ accommodation en route each way with first class train travel, all ground transfers during the trip, and all meals and snacks while on the river.
Your host is Misty Dhillon, owner of Himalayan Outback and founder 7 years ago. He is an experienced fly angler and tyer. Chasing Masheer has been a passion of his for many years. Side trips such as visiting the Jim Corbett Tiger Preserve, Taj Mahal or trekking are add on options.
