Fly Fishing For Trout In the Himalayas
One of India's premier trout runs - a stretch of the
Baspa river deep in the Himalayan range - provides
the perfect angling environment. The fish are plentiful
and the river offers some great and unexplored beats. It
is most definitely a trout angler's paradise. The Himalayas

offering and variety of fish. These streams are paradise for a trout angler.
The thrill of it all is having a big one swallow your fly - leaving you gasping
in excitement. The trout here are strong and big, offering the complete

reason why we ourselves experience the beats where our guests fish by
virtually trying everything to guarantee good results.
