Himalayan Golden Mahseer
The Himalayan Golden Mahseer is often called the river tiger and is known to rank in the top 10 fighting carps of the world. It’s found only in the Himalayan rivers and is listed as an endangered species. Also, it’s known that if any tackle catches one fish, that same tackle will not catch another mahseer which means they have sharp intelligence and communication skills.
Giant Devil Catfish
This prehistoric-looking catfish is one of the tougher specimens to land, as it’s known to be a skulking species hiding in the rock beds and ponds of the Himalayan landscape. Locally also known as the Goonch, it feeds on other small river fish and enjoys a notorious reputation to attack humans on occasions. This fish can weigh anywhere between 10 lbs. to 300 lbs. as a record catch and can measure up to 6 feet in length.
