Misty Dhillon is a pioneer of Golden Mahseer fly fishing and a seasoned guide who has used fly fishing as a tool for conservation by working with local communities in the Himalayan foothills for over 20 years.
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.
We specialize in custom tailoring your travel in India. From notoriously finicky, specie oriented and wildlife expeditions like tiger tracking, birdwatching and snow leopard expeditions. We’re also happy to custom tailor elements that provide immersive opportunities to experience probably one of the most culturally diverse counties on our planet.
“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.
