Introduction to Fishing in Jammu and Kashmir
Fishing is one of the interesting sports available to the tourists during their stay in Jammu and Kashmir. Being located on the northern region of India, it seems to be lying in the laps of the Mother Nature. It gives traveler a heavenly feeling when he undergoes such adventurous sports like fishing. It spell bounds the tourists completely.
An adventurous sport of fishing keeps the tourist energized and does not make him feel tired. To have a catch hold of fish in the net and loosing it in the next moment makes the tourists anxious about the game. As such, there are no hard and fast rules introduced by the government while playing this game. But, yes some rules are brought into limelight that not more than 6 fishes can be caught in a net. An angler has to make sure that he is releasing the fish back into the water after catching it once. On a whole, it is a very exciting game and fishing in hilly area is somewhat we all would love to be the part of.
Very importantly, the angler has to take the permission from Directorate of Fisheries before playing it. There are various local shops which are considered to be the best shops to buy or hire fishing rods.
Nevertheless, if we are lucky to have the game of fishing possible while sitting in Dal Lake, then its nothing like that. The best way to experience the game and have its everlasting effect in our memories, is to see that how kashmiris catch the fish in the net in their traditional ways. Last, but not the least, the attractive view of fishing can be relished in houseboats and Shikaras.
