Considering a fly fishing adventure?

Journey to Bhutan, Nepal & India

Here are our recommendations of the best Golden Mahseer fly fishing trips in the Himalayan foothills of Bhutan, Nepal and India. 

Golden Mahseer

Golden Mahseer is the iconic carp/barbell that is native to the Himalayas. Furthermore, they are a bioindicator species, and just like the Bengal Tiger, they are also facing extinction due to habitat loss as a result of dams, river diversions, canals, and few fish ladders. Anglers around the globe are worried about the future of Golden Mahseer, but local participation and community initiatives, such as catch and release angling are bringing awareness among locals thanks to the internet and social media. We are hopeful that initiatives of organizations such as the Mahseer Trust, local forest departments, dedicated but overworked fisheries officers, local guides, and local, owner-run small business lodges, camps will continue to do the amazing work they were before the pandemic to ensure a further for these iconic fish.

“Hi Misty, Anyone planning to fish for Mahseer would benefit from your online fly tying classes, especially since many of the patterns were developed or refined by you; they can’t be found in books or on the Internet. In addition, as you’re tying, you explain how, and in what circumstances, each fly is best fished – invaluable advice from a Mahseer expert that can’t be gleaned from any other source. Even beginning tiers will have no problem following your instructions. I can’t think of a better way to prepare for our upcoming trip.” Virtual Event Participant.
