Arapaima on the Fly

Arapaima on the Fly


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!”

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!”…..??????????
