Returning expat anglers Del & Sylvia this time brought son Dan along with them; partly for him to enjoy some great fishing and partly to watch him battle in agony with Mekong catfish!

Only Dan seemed to have the last laugh as he landed the biggest fish of the day at around 40Kg (88lb). Fish playing action was simply relentless from the morning through to the late afternoon. Bungsamran's bungalow on this occasion was a non-stop busy work platform for striking fish, playing fish, netting fish, unhooking & photographing fish.

The above pictures clearly define the difference between a day's fishing and day's catching!
