Every once and a while I hear from my friend Puneet Saini who lives in Himachel Pradesh, India. I traveled there on two occasions to fish and film the famous and beautiful Golden Mahseer.
Ever since I produced the TV shows there and having them posted on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel, many Indians have watched the footage and some have become hooked on “angling”. You must understand that India has a very large population and most of the people there cannot afford fishing gear. Fishing fear is even very difficult to purchase there. Puneet often contacts me and asks for my opinion on lure selections and presentations. It really makes me feel good to be able to help him and see his successful catches. The Mahseer above was caught very close to his home and you can see the artificial lure he caught it on.
