Our fly fishing group traveled over 800 kilometers by train, jeep, and raft. We stayed in a diverse array of hotels and guest houses. Considering the multi-faceted nature of the trip, which included tourism in Agra and Delhi plus remote fishing in the Himalayan foothills, Misty’s organizational skills in putting together a flawless travel and fishing program is remarkable. If there were no fish involved, the cultural and eco-tourism aspect alone would have been reward enough. But there were fish; we encountered the fabled Golden Mahseer every day and some could surely be deemed trophies. As icing on the cake, the Saryu River’s jade-green pools and white water rapids were a lovely backdrop to our angling. The thrill of hooking large native fish in the shadow of the worlds tallest mountains, combined with the rich tapestry of India and its people make a journey with the Himalayan Outback one of the globe’s best, and truly unique, angling adventures.

I had a really great time with The Himalayan Outback. I think that you are embarking on a pioneering venture to regularly catch one of the world’s great sport fish in a relatively untried new manner i.e. using fly-rods & flies. I have been lucky enough to fish all over the world & in some very exotic locations, and I can honestly say that our few days on the Saryu was one of the most enjoyable trips I have yet had the good fortune to experience.
