 Hey  vinay!  Sounds  like  you  had  a  great  time.  Would  love  to  see  more  pictures.  Btw  where  is  mlashej  ghat?  And  could  you  get  a  better  picture  of  those  loaches?

 Yes,  its  Malshej  Ghat  and  this  is  the  Pimpalgaon  reservoir  that  was  recently  created  (at  the  base  of  Harishchandragad,  for  the  trekkers  among  you).
 It  was  more  of  a  picnic  with  some  catching  thrown  in  Wink
 
 Spotted  lots  of  fish  but  we  were  unable  to  catch  any  apart  from  some  danio  sp  and  the  abovementioned  loaches.  The  loaches  were  not  in  the  reservoir,  we  got  them  at  a  rocky  stream  at  the  base  of  the  ghat.
 Vinay,  you  need  to  take  better  pics  for  id-  try  to  get  them  in  a  small  glass  container  for  photographing.
 
 There  were  2  types  of  loaches  in  the  stream,  one  type  was  rather  dumb  -easy  to  catch  -  just  lay  the  net  and  lift  them  out  Smile
 These  were  well  striped  and  slimmer  in  shape.
 
 The  other  was  a  more  stubby,  broader  variety  with  a  golden  wash  along  the  sides  and  no  stripes.  Damn  things  were  really  hard  to  catch  and  we  couldn't  get  any  Sad
 
 I'll  try  to  get  some  better  pics  from  Vinay's  place...
 
 Any  tips  from  the  veterans  of  many  fish  trips  would  be  apreciated.  All  we   had  as  equipment  was  a  mosquito  net  and  3  standard  issue  hand  nets...
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Have  been  to  HC'gad  quite  a  few  times,  but  never  really  encountered  this  water  body.  :  (
 
 BTW  mostquito  nets  are  one  of  the  bests  to  scoop  up  the  fish  in  shallows.   Thumb Up  
 
 Mail  me  to  know  more  about  places  for  ornamental  fishy  expeditions  around  Mumbai.   Very Happy

 I've  been  trekking  to  H'gad  for  nearly  10  years.  This  reservoir  came  up  pretty  recently.  We  earlier  used  to  walk  across  the  entire  flat  land  that  is  now  the  lake  to  Khireshwar  village  at  the  base  before  starting  the  ascent.
 
 Techniques  for  using  the  mozzie  net  are  solicited  eagerly  Smile
 The  fish  just  wouldn't  co-operate.
 
 @Rahul:
 Any  ideas  on  what  the  other  species  of  loach  would  be???
 
 
 Would  be  interested  in  all  the  other  fishing  areas  that  you  know  of  around  Mumbai.  Many  of  the  small  pools  I  used  to  fish  in  my  boyhood  have  now  been  filled  in  for  construction.  A.lineatus  used  to  be  a  commonly  caught  fish  but  nowadays  I  only  see  them  off  and  on  in  some  of  the  brackish  waters  near  Uran.
 
 Dombivli,  karjat,  Kalyan  have  some  promising  water  bodies  but  haven't  been  able  to  try  them  out  yet.  This  would  be  a  terrific  season  to  start  Smile
 
 Do  let  me  know...
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Venket,The  other  loach  probably  is  a  Nemacheilus.

 If  you  are  planning  a  collection  trip  around  kalyan  dombivli,  please  let  me  know  too  Smile
 Spending  20  yrs  in  Ambarnath  makes  me  more  eager  to  be  a  part  of  it.

 Thanks  Rahul,  I  thought  the  Nemacheilus  sp  were  all  striped...The  ones  I  was  talking  about  did  not  show  any  stripes.  Guess,  I'll  have  to  catch  some  next  visit  there...and  post  the  pics  since  I  know  next  to  nothing  about  the  loaches...
 
 @Rohan/Suneal
 This  trip  was  planned  the  previous  night  at  around  10:00  PM  Smile
 We  will  definitely  plan  again  soon.  The  weather  is  improving  and  we  should  be  able  to  enjoy  it  better  once  it  becomes  slightly  cooler.  Maybe  end  November...  Thumb Up
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 This  thread  is  cool!  Reminds  me  of  my  hometown,  Dombivli.  It's  been  good  for  me,  since  both  fresh  and  brackish  waters  exist.  There's  where  i  saw  and  netted  a  few  Fan  dancer  gobies  for  the  first  ever  time  and  it  was  a  dream  come  true  to  get  them  after  20  odd  years  now  from  different  localities.
 
 Khadavli  is  one  of  the  best  places  for  fishing.  Water  is  never  really  deep  from  Oct  to  June  and  you  could  spot  all  the  possible  loaches  found  around  Mumbai  in  that  small  river.  Have  seen  some  giant  ones  too,  but  as  ugly  as  lizards.   Chuckle  
 
 A.  lineatus  are  still  found  in  the  suburbs.  Saw  them  last  April  at  the  rocky  banks  of  Talao  Pali  and  also  at  almost  all  the  stagnant  waters  around  MIDC,  Dombivli.  Catching  fish  using  mosquito  nets  requires  some  team  work,  making  sure  you  leave  no  gaps  between  the  net  and  the  bottom.  It's  actually  one  of  the  easiest.   Thumb Up  
 
 @Rohan,  you  being  at  Ambarnath  before,  ever  been  fishing  at  Kondeshwar,  off  Badlapur?
 
 I  know  of  a  secret  location  to  catch  HUNDREDS  of  Swortails  too,  both  red  and  green.  And  may  be  Golden  mollies  there,  if  they  have  survived.   Wink

 Shankar,
 I  started  pretty  late  in  this  hobby  and  have  never  been  to  any  collection  trip  whatsoever:(
 Allthough  I  am  aware  of  all  the  water  bodies  that  are  mentioned  on  this  thread  Smile
 I  remember  going  to  Khadavli  on  a  trip  as  a  kid  and  also  vividly  remember  feeding  popcorns  to  the  fish  who  were  then  joined  by  a  large  number  of  turtles  !!
 In  fact,  Khadavli  will  be  an  exciting  place  even  now  becoz  it  can  be  easily  accessed  by  road  when  I  come  from  pune  to  Thane  (where  my  parents  stay)
 I  visit  Thane  every  month.I  never  knew  one  could  go  down  the  rocky  banks  of  talao  pali  to  catch  fish  .  Please  let  me  know  when  you  come  down  here  again  .
   I  would  love  to  learn  something  from  all  you  guys.

 Are  you  talking  about  Khopoli?  Khadavli  is  beyond  Titwala  man!

 No  need  to  climb  down  the  banks.  These  killies  are  easily  spotted  from  a  distance,  as  they  have  a  'reflector  spot'  on  their  head.  And  if  you  need  to  have  a  closer  look,  you  can  always  hire  a  small  boat  and  stay  calm  in  a  remote  corner,  waiting  for  the  fish  to  surface.  Most  of  the  fish  would  take  refuge  in  the  shadow,  just  below  the  boat.
