Bangkok. Thailand. Short trip with a day to spare, so off to one of the few lakes that give visiting anglers a chance to tangle with some South American imports. These well-stocked operations are world-class and their prized inhabitants are well looked-after. Much care is taken in handling and releasing these fish when caught and anglers are well taken care off all the same.
Unfortunately we arrived right in the middle of the rainy season and apart from impending flood, much of rural Thailand had been turned to muddy peat. Might not be the best for fishing.
|With abit of ingenuity we get ourselves to the lake. And make sure we travel in style!|
|Anglers can opt for both spin and BC tackle, doesn't matter as long as you have some tough drags. Evergreen Temujin Amazon Flip Ballista and Majorcraft Arrival Spin rod are great tools for this kind of work...|
|One favourite for big fish in these lakes is the Evergreen ES Flat swimbait. As illustrated, big lure does mean big fish...|
|This Asian Red Tail Catfish is one of the biggest either us or the local guys have seen...|
|The Amazonian Redtail Catfish are commonly stocked in most lakes here and they go hard. Jackall Bros Girons are the must-have lures for all lakes here as they mimic the Tilapia perfectly...|
|A more normal sized Asian Red Tail on the Giron..|
|The Arapaima can grow huge but here's a smaller specimen easily handled with an outfit like the Temujin Amazon Ballista paired with a Ryoga...|
