Globetrotter Jeff Currier together with his angling buddy Niel Fox made an exploratory trip to the untouched country Bhutan in the Himalayas. They were focussed on fly fishing for Mahseer, but they also caught some “Kalabans” (Bangana dero) as by-catch. The Kalabans is one of the hardest fighting fishes in South Asia. In the last decade the first tourists visited Bhutan, but it is still a blank spot on the map for the sport fishing world.
