The freshwater fishing here is dynamic and explosive! Many of my sea angling customers have experienced some truly memorable ‘Experiences of a Lifetime’ catching Siamese carp in excess of 100lb; arapaima to 300lb and Mekong catfish to 250lb plus many more truly amazing species from two incredible fisheries.
Stuart Gillham used to be one of our sea angling customers in Weymouth. He moved out to Krabi, Thailand, some years ago and created what is considered by many to be the best fishery in the world! That is not an exaggerated description. Take a look yourself gillhamsfishingresorts.com We have enjoyed some truly amazing fishing there.
And now, in the past couple of years, Canadian Mike Bailey has created an equally spectacular fishery, called Exotic Fishing Thailand, just North of Phuket Island. Mike has now opened up his new accommodation facilities and the grounds are becoming ever more scenic as the plants have become established. We have already enjoyed many trips there and, because of its proximity to Phuket, E.F.T can be easily reached on a daily basis. Again, access the website exoticfishingthailand.com and have a look.
I cannot over-compliment these two venues. They are incredible and if you go to either, you will never forget them. It is worth travelling the 6,000 miles to Thailand just to fish at either of these resorts!
And now we have a brand new fishery, opened in late 2016, called the Chalong Fishing Park. This is a much smaller project than the two fisheries described above but it is priced accordingly and offers a whole variety of hard fishing catfish, carp, pacu and other Asian species….and it is just 10 minutes from the house!! This new venue can be accessed via Facebook. Just search Chalong Fishing Park.
Specialist tackle is provided at all these venues but my own sponsors, Grauvell, have provided excellent tackle which is appropriate for use at the Chalong Fishing Park and which you are welcome to use…free!
