Bagarius yarrelli, also known as the giant devil catfish or goonch, is a very large species of catfish in the genus Bagarius found in rivers in South Asia.
It is possibly also found in Southeast Asia, but this may involve a separate species.The Kali River goonch attacks were a series of fatal attacks on humans claimed to be perpetrated
by man-eating goonch catfish in three villages on the banks of the Kali River in Nepal and India, between 1998 and 2007.

I have the opportunity to fish this ferocious man eating catfish in Thailand.
While most goonch fishing were caught in India and Nepal by live/ dead fish.
As a avid lure fisherman myself, I tried to catch this magnificent fish by mean of artificial lure.

Great pics sir! Thanks for sharing, always enjoy seeing your trips. I'm guessing noodling for Goonch catfish is not a good idea. Lol.
