Arapaima Had Eluded Him

Arapaima Had Eluded Him


Ryan has fished with us several times over the last few weeks catching lots of fish from several species but the Arapaima had eluded him…..untill yesterday that is. He and his better half joined us for the day and he was determined to catch an Arry, he failed but in the right way as he managed to lure two of these majestic creatures to the net along with the usual mix of other fish and we were well chuffed that he got his target as he is heading back to the UK in a few days time, mission accomplished.
He wound the day up a little earlier than planned and joined a few of us as we started Flob’s birthday celebrations with a cold one or two, a great night followed which was capped with England beating Denmark to reach the final of the European championships, a much tougher game than mid week but we came through and thats all that matters, well done boys, bring on Italy on sunday. A very long but enjoyable day, feeling fragile this morning but we’re up and at it, ready to greet you for 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!”…..??????????
