Chengdu fishing - Failed again!

Posted by glen , in Travel 17 October 2010 · 2,329 views

Hey guys,

I went fishing in another river today flowing through the city of Chengdu which is in China's Sichuan Province.

I saw quite a few fish rising and they looked sort of like catfish. Some were quite good size. I tried drifting earth worms over them but had no luck. And I tried bottom fishing near the rising fish but that did not work either.

Oh well that's fishing! Lots of people stopped to offer me advice but since I cannot speak chinese it was not much help! Thanks anyway!

I am off to Shanghai tomorrow. I have the address for a street where the fishing tackle shops are located so i hope i can drop by and take a look.

Happy fishing everyone!!

Cheers, Glen

Those fish must be very fussy, I reckon unweighted earthworms is an almost failsafe technique for freshwater, especially if you can see the fish. Did you take you fly rod? Teeny weeny nymph maybe?

No fly rod at the time. I should have done unwaited worms!

Instead I used either worms drifted under a float or I used a sinker on the bottom. Neither worked unfortunately.
