Golden Mahseer Fishing Outfitter of Pancheshwar, Northern India

Daniel Abraham is a young, enthusiastic and exuberant passion for the Golden Mahseer. Daniel has grown up listening to stories from his father and uncles of India’s legendary Golden Mahseer. From an early age, he has also been following them to some of their favorite, secret, Golden Mahseer fishing spots that are located on the borders of Nepal and India. Even though Pancheshwar’s legendary fishing isn’t much of a secret anymore. It is where Daniel decided to leave his corporate carrier and share his passion for Golden Mahseer with anglers from the world over.

We asked him a few questions about his river fishing adventures on the India, Nepal border and here’s what he had to say:

The Saryu and Mahakali rivers meet at Pancheshwar in Uttarakhand. This is the migratory gateway for some of the best fishing for Golden Mahseer in India. Not only does Panceshwar offers good fishing, it also consistently produced some of the largest Golden Mahseer ever caught in this region. Which can happen year after years but only during certain times of the years such as May and a small window in October, when anglers can expect to get fish in the 20-40 lb range or sometime even bigger.

The Golden Mahseer of Pancheshwar is a large fish that can grow to over five feet in length and weigh up to seventy pounds. Though hooking and being able to land a Golden Mahseer are two different things. From the time of the year the time of the day or night. You never know when the Golden Mahseer are going to take use the current to their advantage.

Golden Mahseer fishing is challenging because there are so many variables that come into play when you’re trying to catch one. But if you have a reliable fishing partner who knows what they’re doing, fishing for them should be relatively easy!

Anglers need to be able to spot the Mahseer from a distance, as they are highly mobile fish and will move quickly. Fishing is a combination of skill and luck. We have been able to develop new skills as we have pushed our boundaries with mobile, fly camps, offering access to the remote beats that requires standards and logistics of safety as well as hygiene taken to the next level. As all meals are freshly prepared our camp team has to move in much and advance to be able to accomplish the higher level of standards, as we bring in fresh supplies and process them into cuisine for the international pallet. Be it gluten-free or vegetarian, our camp team will go into details to discuss menus in advance so that you feel well taken care of during your river fishing adventure.

I hope to be able to work with the village communities to be able to manifest some of the best Golden Mahseer fishing possibilities for the world within India.

I would also like to be able to contribute towards better conservation for Golden Mahseer and protected habitat both inside as well as outside protected areas.

Having tried my hand at fly fishing. I am excited to learn and apply fly fishing to these prolific Golden Mahseer waters.
