Their first fishing holiday in Thailand, Pete & Roy from England fished 3 venues over 9 days fishing in Thailand. The first venue was Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok; the second venue was Khao Laem Dam and the thrid was Shadow Lake. The above pictures tell the story of their fishing holiday in Thailand along with the weights and species caught.
Below is Roy & Pete's account of their holiday in the form of a testimonial.
"Having heard about the legendary fighting qualities of the mighty Giant Mekong Catfish from various parties we decided that Thailand was to be the place for our annual fishing holiday.
We looked at many websites which cater for anglers in Thailand and decided that Fish Thailand was the most professional and therefore the best company to use(correct decision).
Throughout the whole booking process and the actual holiday itself, Eddie and his team were superb in their organisation, help and advice, nothing was too much trouble.
The fishing itself was awesome, all the stories we had heard about the Mekong were true, these brutes fight like nothing on earth with every muscle and sinew in your body aching trying to get them banked.
We fished at 3 venues, Bungsamran, Khao Laem Dam and Shadow Lake. Bungsamran has to be the most prolific fishery in the world, on one day we had a run of 9x40lbs+ Mekongs in 9 casts, the float going under each time after about a minute after Alley (number 1 guide at Bungsamran) had cast out.
The snakehead fishing at the dam was a little slower than Eddie expected but we still managed to hook a few.
We did however catch the most magnificent looking Indian Carp (rohu) at 33lbs, it was scale perfect with burgandy/red fins, an absolute superb specimen.
Eddie said the best chance of a big Mekong was at Shadow lake and so it proved to be with both of us catching 66lb beasts.
The Thai`s must be the friendliest and most welcoming people we have ever met and the scenery out in the jungle was picture postcard everywhere you looked.
If anyone reading this has the inclination to fish in Thailand, take my advice and book a holiday with Eddie and his team, you will have the time of your life."
