Discover Fishing in Thailand
The Land of Siamese Giant Carp & Mekong Giant Catfish

For some anglers fishing in Thailand needs no introduction, they have been visiting this wonderful land for many years now; catching with relative ease the worlds biggest carp and the worlds biggest catfish. This fabulous fishing remains unknown & somewhat of a myth to the majority of anglers who have yet to discover fishing in Thailand. Below is a collage of not myths, but factual captures and events from fishing in Bangkok with The Fish Thailand Team.
