Fishing for Mahseer requires good tackle, from the reel, line, rod, lure, split rings, and hooks. Mahseer are hard fighters and a good sized one can take 50m-100m downstream on the first run. As the waters of the river are typically fast flowing, a rod with a fast action rod would be required when bringing the fish back against the current. Upgrading the hooks and split rings on the lure is vital in landing lunkers. Another important point to note is the line capacity on the reels.
