There are some surprisingly cheap float trips in India for Mahseers and others. Mentioned it to a few friends with no interest. Think it would be a VERY cool trip for a lot of reasons.

Found a couple willing to play last time out. A cold front tried to fling shit on my first fishing day out in a while, but I made do.

This one was tight to the bank on the upwind side, and I had to do some ninja shit to get to it.

I've caught heavier carps, but none have run further. Dude ran me off the bank, 50yds out into the river, and around an island before hitting net. Landed it and instead of being fat or tall, this one was sorta lean but thicker towards the tail than most. Kinda more like DeMarcus Ware than Prince Fielder, I suppose.

This next pig was the polar opposite in terms of fight- also hooked in real close, but it never got more than 30' away from me. That was good, because if he'd run to the left, it likely would have been snapped off quick in the brush.

Down to about a month here. Can't come soon enough. Saw a few catatonic carp in what must have been a warm spot last week when it was warm here. Accidentally sat a dumbbell eyed fly right on top of one's head. It just sat there with this little furry fez on. :coffee Didn't spook, sure as hell didn't try to eat it.

Wait work ?

I'm having a hard time grasping that man.
I seriously thought you just did cool stuff all the time kind of like being cool was your job.

I'm struggling now.
