Colonel Wilson was fishing a fine river, the Dhansiri, near Nichuguard. He says: "Whilst I was fishing, a native came and spun me various yarns about the enormous fish a sahib caught there the previous year, one of which was so large, the narrator had to take his clothes off to help to land it. From further enquiries I elicited particulars which showed that this angler could be no other than myself, and as on this occasion I had killed nothing over 6lbs., I suggested that this 18 pounder would have grown to 80lbs. by the time the next sahib came along."
