The range of these fish is from Malaysia, Indonesia across southern Asia to Iran - including the Indian Peninsula. They are commercially important game fish and have many wonderful stories told about them by fishermen. The small sized fish up to 10+ lb can be caught with large nymphs. Successful ones have been NZ Mayfly Bombs, Tungsten Damsel Nymphs and Dragonfly Nymphs fishing upstream with an indicator. Streamer patterns are also very good, the larger the fish the larger the fly and some Masheer get very large! A selection of large dry flies for the small masher is always fun to use and cast.
