    Hi All,

    Had been on a collection trip recently. Here are the Barilius bendelisis collected from that trip fantastic fish to see when caught. The bright yellow colouration is just simply awesome. I am going back to the spot on Monday and will try and get some field pics.

    The pics are courtsey Benjamin.

    Apologies for the upper case Bendelisis. Can anyone correct that for me. It seems I cannot edit the topic.

    I had the same problem yesterday. I Pm’ed Matt who advised it’s a feature of the forum software. No need to apologise.

    I’m looking forward to seeing some more pics too.

    Thanks a lot guys. They seemed to be in high numbers but I did not have space for more than 5 so did not collect more but they were really stunning in the wild colours.

    Hi Deepak, they were caught in Cauvery.

    Thanks Nikhil,
    Its like a reminder for myself that I have to check my own backyard before venturing farther.
    Have to plan some short trips for Cauvery and Kabini

    Nikhill, just out of interest, how do you catch them? Do you have pics of the waters you caught them in?

    Hi Jarcave,

    These are caught with a cast net. The net holes are smaller than the size of the fish just to make sure we do not have any fish with gills stuck in the thread. We catch smaller loaches with
    either hand nets which have an outer rim made out of bent iron or use a nylon mosquito net as loaches can be of funny sizes but the smallest ones after being inspected for species. Its basically to make sure we do not miss any new species.

    As for pics mate I am in the process of writing an article and then trying to print it in one of the magazines rather want to document each trip so that I can maybe publish them. Pics are scarce but maybe next time I will take some more pics and update this thread.
