 The  decision  to  go  on  a  fishy  trip  was  made  during  the  Monthly  meet  at  Ashwin's  place.  Everyone  who  made  for  the  meet  wanted  to  go  on  a  trip  although  noone  had  a  clue  about  where  to  go.  Nearby  rivers  like  Cheyyar  and  Palar  were  nothing  but  tons  of  sand.
 
 After  exploring  various  possibilities  and  running  outta  water  bodies  close  by,  we  landed  on  a  place  near  Chittoor  called  Kaigal  suggested  by  a  colleague  (yes,  I  have  started  pestering  them  too  now).
 
 
 We  initially  thought  we  will  identify  a  place  and  then  inform  rest  of  the  Chennai  folks  about  the  trip  but  no  concrete  plans  were  possible.  So  we  made  it  a  recee  trip  considering  we  froze  on  the  location  the  night  before  the  trip  and  also  decided  to  plan  a  full  fledged  collection  trip  in  the  near  future.
 
 Kaigal  was  supposed  to  be  about  194  kms  from  Madras  and  is  a  waterfall  and  also  a  little  known  tourist  destination   (luckily).  After  a  few  reassurances  on  the  perennial  nature  of  the  spot,  we  finalized  it.
 
 Since  we  had  been  to  Andhra  for  a  few  trips,  we  were  looking  forward  to  collecting  new  species  (Im  sick  of  looking  at  the  Rasbora  Daniconius  in  my  nets  by  the  way)  and  also  avoid  villages  with  cuss  words  for  names.
 
 The  8  IAH  members  who  were  part  of  this  recee  were  Bala  (Bala_Kavi),  Shankar  (Shankar),  Balaji  (Shovelnose)  ,Prasoon  (Prasoon),Sai(fishysai),Ashwin(Mandragoran),Rajeswaran(Demon),Rajiv  (Raven)
 
 We  had  2  concerns  to  begin  with.
 
 i)The  water  falls  was  very  close  to  a  reserve  hence  we  might  have  been  behind  bars  (not  the  fluids  serving  kind)  even  if  we  had  collected  a  single  Guppy  and  that  would  have  sucked  real  bad.
 
 ii)We  got  news  that  it  had  rained  heavily  in  Chittor  and  hence  visibility  might  be  a  problem.
 
 We  decided  to  go  on  with  the  trip  come  what  may.  3:00  AM  was  when  we  wanted  to  leave  and  since  it  was  a  weekend,  minds  got  high  and  time  went  unnoticed.
 
 Prasoon  and  Bala  the  two  'Drivers'  for  the  trip  got  up  by  2:30  and  started  giving  wake-up  calls  to  everyone,  Shankar  who  was  joining  from  the  other  side  of  the  city  came  to  Bala's  place  by  around  3:30  am...  there  were  some  delays  but  eventually  we  started  at  around  4:00  AM  after  a  ciggy/tea  break  plus  the  
 customary  group  photo.
 
 
 
 L-R  :  Rajeshwaran,Balaji,Sai,Ashwin,Shankar,Bala,Rajiv  and  Prasoon  behind  the  camera.
 
 
 The  journey  was  uneventful  except  for  Bala  trying  to  run  over  some  simple  village  folk  a  few  dozen  times.
 
 We  also  learnt  never  to  trust  distances  locals  told  us  cos  they  ranged  from  ‘its  just  3  kms  away’  to  ’35  kms  that  way  saaar’.
 
 The  road  was  very  good  right  upto  1  Km  from  the  water  fall...we  even  forgot  to  have  b'fast  in  the  car....  After  parking  our  car,  we  had  to  walk  for  about  .5  km  (thats  what  the  locals  told  us  again)  
 
 The  trekkish  walk  would  have  been  peaceful  if  it  weren’t  for  some  monkeys  who  had  decided  we  had  come  collecting  for  them  and  ran  straight  for  our  food.  Shankar  suggested  everyone  walk  closely  and  the  monkeys  stayed  away  from  us  (only  for  a  brief  while  though)...
 
 The  first  spot  was  dry  and  got  everyone  worried,  but  we  kept  walking  further  and  soon  we  were  able  to  hear  the  sound  of  waterfall....suddenly  everyone
 Started  walking  faster  and  soon  we  dropped  the  bags  and  split  into  smaller  groups  and  started  exploring  the  water...  Ashwin  was  the  last  one  to  join
 and  before  he  could  start  fishing,  monkeys  started  to  come  closer  to  the  bags  and  he  was  forced  to  keep  an  eye  on  the  bags...  
 
 A  few  pics  of  the  landscape.
 
 
 
 [img]
 
 
 
 
 
 The  water  level  was  low  but  it  was  perfect  for  fishing...  knee  deep  and  crystal  clear...  we  could  spot  tons  of  Garras,Puntius  Sp,Guppies,Tilapias,Red  Claw  Shrimps  and  a  Schistura  Sp.  This  was  the  guy  that  really  got  us  going  and  everyone  was  soon  digging  up  every  bit  of  leaf  litter  they  could  find  to  catch  some  more  of  them.  No  stone  was  left  unturned,  literally.
 
 
 
 
   Most  of  us  were  used  to  finding  only  the  L.Thermalis  in  the  wild  and  hence  there  were  quite  some  whoops  of  joy  whenever  someone  netted  the  Schistura  Sp.
 
 Quite  interestingly,  there  were  a  lotta  fry  found  under  the  leaf  litter  as  well  and  there  were  quite  a  few  adults  around.  Left  me  wondering  if  they  had  spawned  recently.
 
 
 After  fishing  in  the  first  spot  till  about  9:30,  we  felt  we  should  search  for  other  good  spots..  Sai  got  down  and  located  a  good  spot,  it  was  a  steep  decend  for  about  30  feet  and  it  was  made  tough  by  the  slipper  rocks  ,the  bags(eatables)  and  nets.  
 
 We  netted  some  amazing  D.Malabaricus  at  this  spot.  All  of  them  were  adults  and  hence  we  clicked  a  few  pics  and  released  them  back.  Prasoon's  mosquito  net  proved  to  be  very  useful  in  this  spot.  That  thing  was  straight  outta  Indiana  Jones.
 
 
 
 
 Puntius  Bimacs  were  also  found  in  plenty  though  almost  all  of  them  were  juveniles.
 
 
 
 
 A  this  point  we  split  into  2  batches  and  started  exploring  the  place.  Most  of  the  people  were  really  keen  on  collecting  the  Guppies  cos  their  colouration  was  quite  amazing.  Ranging  from  orange  to  violet  patches  (I  suck  at  colors  and  dono  if  that’s  a  good  enough  range).
 
 I  collected  the  Guppies  only  cos  I  was  sure  the  cats  in  my  house  would  make  quite  a  meal  of  them  and  I  was  quite  right.  It  could  have  made  for  a   really  short  film  entitled  30  Guppies  Plus  A  Few  Puntius  Gone  in  60  Seconds.
 
 
 A  few  fishy  pics  :  
 
 
 Crab
 
 
 
 
 Red  Claw  Shrimp
 
 
 
 
 Schistura  Sp  Im  guessing.  Under  a  lotta  stress  though.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Danio
 
 
 
 
 Guppies
 
 
 
 
 Garra  Sp.
 
 
 
 
 Plant  Id  Please
 
 
 
 
 Other  species  we  saw  but  couldn  take  pics  of  :  
 
 R.Daniconius  (Again)
 P.Vittatus
 Tilapia
 
 
 We  drifted  quite  further  away  from  the  main  spot  in  desperation  to  net  a  few  other  species  and  found  nothing  different.  The  same  Garras  and  some  very  nicely  coloured  Danios.  
 
 On  our  way  back  however,  I  saw  these  humongous  fish  that  were  darting  on  the  bottom  but  had  no  idea  what  they  were.  The  water  was  already  murky  (thanks  to  our  Godzilla  like  movements)  and  hence,  sighting  them  again  proved  to  be  an  impossibility.
 
 Throughout  the  trip,  I  had  only  one  goal.  Spot/Catch/Drool  At  the  catfish  found  there  and  I  wasn’t  able  to  spot  any.  Im  guessing  it  was  too  upstream  for  any  Mystus  Sp.  Anyone  know  any   instances  of  Glyptothorax  Sp  occuring  in  these  regions???  
 
 The  others  were  able  to  get  a  few  kilos  of  moss  which  was  thriving  under  a  waterfall...  we  are  not  sure  if  this  can  be  grown  under  water...  right  now  they  are  kept  in  a  shallow  tray.
 
 
 Soon  everyone  started  to  get  hungry  and  they  took  breaks  from  fish  collection  to  grab  something  to  eat...  it  was  very  clear  that  we  will  not  be  able  to  explore  further  and  the  fish  we  had  already  collected  would  require  a  water  change  soon.  Shankar,Rajeshwaran  and  Sai  sat  about  making  the  water  changes  as  Prasoon  and  me  worked  on  the  photos  of  the  fish.
 
 Very  soon,  lotsa  locals  and  some  potential  biryani  raw  materials  started  invading  our  spot  and  so  we  thought  it  would  be  better  to  leave  asap.
 
 Now  came  another  difficult  part,  dividing  the  loot.  This  took  close  to  and  hour  and  in  the  end  ,  we  had  more  than  a  dozen  bags.  5  of  which  were  Guppies.
 
 Here  s  what  people  took  bag  (I  think)
 
 Shankar  :  Schistura  Sp,Garras
 
 Bala  :  Guppies,Wood  Shrimp
 
 Sai  :  Wood  Shrimp,L.Thermalis
 
 Ashwin  :  P.Bimaculatus,Guppies
 
 Rajiv  :  Guppies
 
 Rajeshwaran  :  Wood  Shrimp,Red  Claws
 
 Me  :  Schistura  Sp  and  2  bags  of  live  feed
 
 Anything  I  missed  out???
 
 We  managed  to  leave  the  place  by  2:30  PM  weary,wet  and  longing  for  food  and  drinks.  
 
 
 
 
 Since  the  trip  went  quite  well  and  everyone  had  a  good  time,  we  decided  to  grab  some  good  food  on  the  way  back.  Most  of  the  places  we  sighted  were  vegetarian  and  that  did  scandalize  most  of  us.  Luckily  we  managed  to  find  a  decent  joint  and  ordered  as  much  meat  as  we  could.  I  was  delighted  with  my  catch  and  hence  decided  to  go  on  a  'liquid  diet'.  Buying  it  though  was  a  pain  in  the  derriere  as  twas  Election  Results  day.
 
 Food  was  not  bad  but  I  honestly  feel  they  were  cajoling  the  chickens  to  lay  eggs  as  we  were  placing  the  orders  cos  more  than  half  the  dishes  we  ordered  never  made  it  to  the  table.
 
 
 
 
 The  return  journey  though  not  exciting  did  have  its  moments  with  all  of  us  taking  turns  to  sleep  (cough  cough).
 
 
 After  a  long  back  breaking  drive,  we  came  back  to  Bala's  place  at  around  8:00  pm,  said  the  usual  goodbyes  and  back  it  was  to  mundane  city  life.
 
 
 Take  Outs  :  
 
 I)A  trip  a  month  definitely  seems  feasible  for  the  Chennai  Chapter  if  we  keep  going  at  this  pace.
 
 II)There  are  plenty  of  spots  around  waiting.
 
 III)The  distance  did  drain  us  physically  after  a  point  so  that  maybe  needs  a  rethink  and  I  really  think  some  of  us  should  learn  Telugu  cos  we  keep  visiting  the  state  quite  often.  My  version  of  Telugu  is  basically  a  mixture  Tamil,English  and  prefixed  by  the  word  guru   (I  got  that  from  my  years  in  Blore  by  the  way).
 
 Overall  a  truly  wonderful  experience.  Once  a  month  with  more  people  I  say................

 Nice  narration  Balaji.  
 
 Any  closer  shots  of  the  Schistura  sp?
 
 The  large  fish  darting  around  the  bottom  might  have  been  Garra  sp.  They  get  quite  large  in  the  wild  (have  seen  some  6"+)
 
 Cheers,

 Very  good  write-up  Balaji..  Are  you  sure  that  you  want  to  risk  people's  life  on  a  monthly  basis  with  such  trips?  no  wonder  you  sat  in  the  other  car  this  time.....
 
 I  had  lined  up  a  back-up  driver  for  the  trip...  but  we  all  knew  what  state  he  was  in   Drinking  
 
 I  thoroughly  enjoyed  the  trip.....  lets  plan  for  a  trip  to  Thamarabharani  .....Pradeep  has  started  logging  into  IAH..  hope  he  can  join  us....
 
 Cheers
 Bala

 Nice  narration  Balaji.  And  nice  biotope  pictures  too.  Thanks  for  sharing.
 
 If  not  wrong,  Shankar  became  much  slimmer  than  before.   Smile

 Thanks  Balaji  for  the  write  up.  We  had  an  excellent  time  at  Kaigal.  Thanks  to  all  folks  for  the  trip.  Looking  forward  for  the  next  one.
 
 @Rahul:  Trash  can  -  that  served  as  an  ideal  container  for  the  jumpy  bimacs  and  shrimps
 
 Regards

 Thanks  all.
 
 Rahul  :  
 
 I  stand  corrected.  Have  a  lot  more  reading  to  do  when  it  comes  to  non-cats.
 
 Hayath  :  
 
 Thats  what  I  was  told  too.  Garras.  But  these  where  definitely  10  inches  and  were  too  fat  to  be  Garras.  We  had  seen  plump  6  inch  Garras  around  too.  The  ones  Im  talking  about  were  almost  grey  in  colour.  
 
 As  for  the  Schistura,  I  did  bring  a  few  juveniles  back  and  they  re  headed  for  Beta's  tanks  soon.  So  we  l  know  what  they  re  for  sure  then.  
 
 Bala  :  
 
 One  trip  a  month  for  sure.  Even  if  it  means  banishment  from  home.

 Great  trip   indeed..
 
 The  first  delay  was,  i  suppose,  thanks  to  urs  truly..  a  few  dozen  alarm  rings..  and  some  fifteen  missed  calls  later..  the  guys  decided  to  gate  crash..  Very Happy
 thankfully..  it  worked..  ;)
 
 A  big   Thumbs Up   to  all   our  guys  who,  despite  all  odds  made  it  to  the  trip..  and  a  special  pat  on  the  back  for  Ashwin  who  in  spite  of      "..  got  mothered......  by  my  mother..!!  "  earlier  that  night  and  still  managed  to  make  it..   Wink  
 
 overall  it  was  a  wonderful  trip  and  thanks  to  the  showers  the  previous  night..  the  trip  up  was  amazing..  
 
 That  apart..  I  gues,  like  Balaji  said,  we  could  actually  make  it  a  monthly  affair..  wut  say  guys???
 
 
 Cheers
 
 Sai
