Himalayan Adventure Fishing Holidays
16-days / 15-nights
Our adventure takes you on a 16-day fly fishing expedition through the heart of the northern Indian Himalayas, deep into Kashmir's high altitude untouched streams and rivers.
I spent 16 days trekking in the Himalayas and chasing Scottish Brown and Rainbow Trout at 3000m via countless high altitude lakes, rivers and tributaries, casting along rivers that would disappear below ground level and appear 100m further down the high altitude valley floor. Apparently, no-one has fished these waters for over 60 years so it was incredible to see how the fish responded to dry flies. I’ve only ever experienced brown trout that are bulldozers but these high altitude fish were acrobatic, which was something I’ve never seen before. To trek through the Indian Himalayas was an experience in and of itself – to camp beside lakes fed directly by monstrous glaciers that towered overhead was quite something. Our fly-fishing guide Paul was extremely knowledgeable and clearly passionate about angling in the Himalayas. All in all a trip I would highly recommend.
TARGET SPECIES ON FLY
Pristine waters, breed pristine fish.
Trout fish in India. The target species is Scottish brown and rainbow trout with a quirky and unique history, dating back to the days of the British Raj. After numerous failed attempts, these species were finally successfully introduced into Kashmir’s glacial waters and they instantly took to their new environment. Himalayan trout, untouched waters, crisp temperatures and gentle currents combine for a completely unique fishing experience..
