The GREATEST Fish: Golden Mahseer Expeditions
“To catch & release the GREATEST Fish in the History of Mankind”.
This is the bold mission statement at our core that helps set us apart from other Fishing Expedition Operators. The GREATEST Fish Team fully understand what is required to give our Guest Anglers the very best chance of catching and releasing a GREAT Fish from wonderful and remote locations.
At the GREATEST Fish we really CARE about what our Guest Anglers catch and release on every one of our trips! We carry out advanced reconnaissance trips to our chosen locations to find features and fish, iron out possible issues, and we ONLY take Guest Anglers at suitable times of the year.
We know that being at the right location, at the right time, with the right bait or lure, presented in the right way is key to success when fishing for instinctively wary species like the Himalayan Golden Mahseer.
To this end our GREATEST Fish Guides tirelessly make sure everything is in place for our Guest Anglers to maximise their chances of catching a GREAT Fish.

The legendary Himalayan Golden Mahseer:
Since the 1800s in freshwater few fish have captured the imagination like the Himalayan Golden Mahseer. This fish has an unparalleled combination of beauty and power with a reputation for instinctive intelligence which makes large Mahseer difficult to catch. Couple this with the fact that they live in rapid and rock strewn fast flowing rivers with changing conditions and you have a worthy opponent for the most accomplished angler.
These are the fish that comprehensively smashed rods, reels and lines when the Colonels and the Majors tried to use their salmon gear in the days of the Raj in colonial India. In the end, tackle-makers such as Hardy’s were forced to build a new range to cope with “Mahseer Power”.
Rudyard Kipling, the author of the classic “The Jungle Book” wrote: “There he stood, the Mahseer of the Poonch, beside whom the Tarpon is a Herring and he who catches him can say he is a fisherman”
Quite simply only once you have hooked, fought, landed, and seen close-up a BIG Golden Mahseer do you realise that the legends surrounding this GREAT Fish are all true!
Why not join the GREATEST Fish Team to track down, capture, and release your GREATEST Golden Mahseer and become part of the Legend!
