Thailand Fishing Holidays

Fish Thailand regular Phil Bell-Scott returned with his father and brother for whom was their first experience fishing in Thailand. Phil already enjoyed a days freshwater stingray fishing whereby he landed two fish to over 500lb in a day. The reason why his brother and father came later to Thailand was due to his brother Antony, taking part in China's Iron Man competition - an incredibly well conditioned young man; his father Mike went with him.

Predator Fishing Thailand at IT Lake Monsters

The first two days were spent predator fishing Thailand at IT Lake Monsters in Ratchaburi province of Thailand. Here Mike, Antony and Phil landed nine different species of Thai & Amazonian predatory fish - a wonderful time was spent with lots of fish action to bend the rods throughout the two days. Fly fishing in Thailand is something that Phil was particularly keen on and his fly fishing skills are close to professional, taking pacu and spotted featherback on the fly.

Boon Mar Ponds Fishing in Thailand

Here the trio of anglers took on the barramundi - Phil of course fly fishing for the barra while Antony and Mike used lure fishing techniques. Between the three anglers the barramundi didn't know what hit them! A huge haul of big barramundi around the 10lb-16lb mark were landed.

Fishing in Bangkok at Bungsamran Lake

The final two days were spent at Bungsamran in Bangkok, setup for Mekong giant catfish with a fishing bungalow each. Four Fish Thailand guides cared for the trio as they hauled in Mekong catfish one after the other for many hours. The best fish fell to Mike at 88lb (40Kg), Mike used to be a commercial cod fisherman but the twist is that he successfully made his living doing this with rod & line! His fishing skills were still close to his heart as he demonstrated on this Thailand fishing holiday.
