MORNING WORLD…..

 
Phuket Sandbox customers from England, Russia and France yesterday.
 
Welshman Nathan joined us for the second time and he is heading to Hong Kong after Phuket so he has not had to cut his holiday short or cancell like so many others from the UK since they decided to put Thailand on a red list. Several nice fish for him and the other anglers though it is fair to say that the fishing was a little slower than it has been. Sometimes a bit of a change in tactics can make all the difference so yours truly decided to try something different to the others. Free lined “luum”‘ (groundbait) tightly squeezed on the hook did the job which resulted in 10 fish in 38 minutes with two further fish dropped in that time using one rod. Defintely NOT slow fishing with Striped Catfish and Pacu taking the bait on the drop with near instant bites and I’m sure that if I’d kept going and fed the swim more the Siamese Carp would have also moved in.
 
The fish have a couple of days rest before we open again on Wednesday morning, silly prices and high catch rates, PLEASE PRE BOOK and come to enjoy some…..”FUNFISHIN!”…..🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎

We have had a couple of people ask us if we are currently doing any deals and so the poster below should answer that question as we are basically offering our fishing at half price in an effort to tempt ex pats and remaining stranded tourists on the Island. All the usual things are included in the price and with very little pressure on the lake, very good catch rates are to be expected. We have removed our short 3 hour session as it would just not be worth doing and the half day package is great value anyway.
 
Please note that we do not offer hourly rates and the packages that we are offering do not even come close to meeting our running costs so please do not ask for further reductions.
 
We were also offering a half days fishing with 8 cold ones included a couple of days a week for just 1,000 baht (do the math) but we had no takers so we will have a re think.
 
Virtually all businesses here are struggling with the majority not even open and many perhaps closed for good. We are very aware that this is the same world over and this is not a cry for help, just putting it out there for you and the fish photos were all caught in the last week so why not come and catch some for yourselves and enjoy some “FUNFISHIN!”…..??????????

Return of Brit Angler

Return of Brit Angler

Return of Brit Angler-two

MORNING WORLD…..

Friday saw the return of Brit angler Simon and he had similar results to his previous visit with plenty of fish throughout the day. He was joined by a friend who had to cut his day short due to an old wrist injury and these tropical hard fighting fish will quiet easily remind you of old wounds. Patrik and his boys joined us for the last of several visits as they had to cut short their holiday as the UK announced that Thailand is now considered a red zone and expensive quarantine would be in place if you do not get back in time, thanks Boris! Our pal Paul Whittall joined us in the afternoon for a fishy birthday celebration for yours truly, again lots of fish for him.

Yesterday saw the return of Nick Van-Heyningen and his mate Mick and once again lots of fish. A busy half-day session for a customer from the US and the afternoon saw John Hutchinson and Nauris Bartoska hang their gloves up for a while for a little R&R and several fish in just a couple of hours.

The States and the UK are the leading countries for tourists through the Phuket Sandbox and since last weeks Red Zone announcements it seems that this is about to change very quickly meaning fewer customers for all of us once again, let’s hope it’s not for long but in the meantime, those who are here can take advantage of the fact that there will be more space, reduced rates are still in place and the fish are very hungry, give us a shout and come and enjoy some …..”FUNFISHIN!”….🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎

The Phuket Sandbox-Chao Phraya Catfish

MORNING WORLD…..

 
Another fairly busy day with most, if not all, customers part of the Phuket Sandbox, which has made a massive difference for us over the last few weeks and we hope that our friends who run bars etc can see the same improvements soon.
Customers from England, France and Thailand, most of whom have fished with us before either on this holiday or in the happier pre covid days.
 
The Siamese Carp were feeding well and Jemma who has been here with her family for several weeks and fished with us every week got amongst them along with all the other usual suspects and a very nice Chao Phraya Catfish right at the start of the session, always nice to see a lady enjoying fishing so much and she’s dam good at it too !
 
It was a nice surprise to see our old mate Ray who has recently returned from England, he joined us with friends for a short afternoon stint and they along with everyone else had plenty of fish.
 
Prices are still slashed and catch rates still remain very high, it seems that people like what we do and thankfully we are fairly busy so PLEASE CONTACT US FIRST and join us for some…..”FUNFISHIN!”……🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎

The “Dynamic Duo”

The “Dynamic Duo”

The 'Dynamic Duo'-lumpy Amazon Red Tail

MORNING WORLD…..

 
The “Dynamic Duo” were back with us again on one of our closed days by special arrangement. Robert Porter and Albert Greenaway join us once a month or so and Rob is the current lake record holder with 125 fish in one day (225 BETWEEN THEM) Each time they visit there is just one plan and yes you guessed it, to beat their own records – a tall order by any standards. This time they fell a little short but still had terrific sport with Rob catching 61 fish and Albert only 7 fish short of his personal best with 94. A nice mixture of species with various Red Tail Cats, Striped Cats, Siamese Carp, Walking Cats and many Pacu and if the Red Tails had been on the feed more in the morning these figures would have been a lot higher. The downside to the Pacu is the many bite off’s with their razor-sharp, chisel like teeth and we should note that many of these fish are several kilos in weight so to land 155 fish between them in one session is some work out, well done guys and well done to our guides, Jack ( the pretty one with the fish in the photos) and Di who work a long day nearly non stop to keep the engine running.
 
The fish and the guides get a well earned break today but we’re all back at it again from 8am tomorrow morning. There are a couple of names already in the book but plenty of room for more so if you fancy some of the above with reduced rates PLEASE CONTACT US FIRST and come and enjoy some …”FUNFISHIN!”….🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎

MORNING WORLD…..

Another busy weekend even though Sunday was very wet with rain throughout most of the day.

A first for us yesterday as Bangkok Expat Mark returned with his fly rod for the second time this week and after catching several Amazon Red Tail Cats “Arry” took the fly. Two anglers having success on the fly this week.

Customers from England, Holland, France, USA, Middle East, Thailand and Germany all had busy days with loads of fish caught. A nice mixture of Phuket Sandbox tourists and Expats made the numbers. Many of these were repeat customers like Jemma, Frankie and Alan ffrom England who joined us for the fourth time in as many weeks and our young Dutch friend Mason, here with his Dad for the fifth time in the last two weeks, I think its safe to say that he is hooked.

Our pals “The Dynamic Duo” Robert Porter and Albert Greenaway are with us by special arrangement again today and the fish are having a rest tomorrow, we’re back at it again from 8am Wednesday morning, the prices remain low and the catch rates are high. PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE COMING and enjoy some…….”FUNFISHIN!”
