In all the years Fish Thailand has been guiding, never before has an 88 year old lady played not just one but two Mekong giant catfish at Bungsamran Lake in Bangkok. Young strong men struggle with these beasts, some even giving up or handing the rod away but not Elaine Miller; she insists on landing her own fish.

Grandson Rich and girlfriend Hayley enjoyed the days fishing in Bangkok as a birthday present for Rich - they landed over 25 Mekong catfish between them from 40lb - 66lb.

Elaine Miller is an inspiration to the young and the old alike - incredibly strong willed and fit as a fiddle; truly remarkable.
