Red Bull has the highest market share of any energy drink in the world, with 7.5 billion cans sold in a year (as of 2019) Ewan Naude, Gerald Penkler and Leonard Flemming from Red bull had an exciting fishing experience in Iran. They fished shirbot and mangar (aka the king barbus).
Leonard Flemming said We were on a fly fishing exploratory trip in southwestern Iran, fishing for fun of course.in addition, the two main species we travelled all the way to Iran for were shirbot and mangar (aka the king barbus).
Ewan had stumbled upon photos of mangar on the internet and since we were all fanatic about catching large South African barbs, the yellowfishes – although dwarfed by mangar, he didn’t have to beg us to join him on this fishing adventure.
The large shirbot we found were an added bonus and saved what would otherwise have turned into a rather unsuccessful trip. An ill-timed release of water for hydro-power generation from a dam upstream had sunk our expectations to catch manger, a fish rather sensitive to water changes, in good numbers. For instance, it is not unusual for Seana’s clients to land twenty mangar in a day; however, we only managed to scratch together five fish during the six day trip, of which four were landed on fly tackle.
