I must have spent countless days and nights agonising over what rods and reels I should take for Mahseer fishing on the Ramganga.
The outfitters had made general recommendations advising the length of rods(6-8 ft) for the Ramganga, with a medium-fast/fast action, rated for 12-25 lb line and a 3lb test curve.
This is ok if you have a rod of this type or can purchase one especially for this trip .However, in my case, I had plenty of rods but I try to take travel rods only for ease of transport.
Reels had to be of " good quality.Good stopping power,and precise,smooth drags with LOTS OF LINE
( ideally 200-300 yards)."
The reels were not a problem.
So I have wound up deciding to take two rods ( Shimano Beastmaster and Exage, as my heavy and light rods respectively) and a Saltist 4500h and a lighter Pflueger Salt 50 reel.
