Series 4 / Barbus Tor Putitora / India / Mahseer

The Barbus tor putitora, aka, the Mahaseer, is the strongest fighting river fish on the planet and with a tail as broad as a paddle, itís easy to understand why. Kathryn found it thrilling fishing for the river tiger at night in the highlands of the Himalayas. As the sun peaked over the mountains and the birds announced the new day, Kathryn put down her spinning rod and picked up her fly rod and just kept fishing. Her hard work was rewarded when she hooked into the mighty bar of gold, the legendary Mahaseer, a fish that even Corbett would have been proud of.
