As Thailand and Phuket start to come to life for the high season we had a couple of fairly busy days. Nice to see some old faces once again and always good to welcome new ones. Thanks to our old mate Les for bring along a couple of friends who wanted to try some fishing out and in spite of the rain on Thursday they got amongst ’em as did another friend Craig enjoying a break from work in Australia. Season ticket holder “DOT” joined us for the afternoon and she was kept busy with 23 fish for the session including several nice Siamese carp.
Things were much the same yesterday as we were joined by Mark and Claire, Brits living in New Zealand who made the trip to us from Khao Lak which is a couple of hours away on the mainland. Their trip was worthwhile as they were rewarded with lots of fish. Our mate Gary also joined us for the day enjoying his first full day on Phuket, again lots of fish for him fishing from the disabled swim right next to the bar….now there’s a coincidence ! Uk angler Dave was back for the third time in a week with his mate and in spite of one his rods getting pulled in they were getting plenty of action. He was a tad p**ssed off with himself but don’t worry we got the rod back, fish and all so all is ok. Other anglers from various nationalities joined us for short sessions and all did well and our pal Tim’s fly fishing skills improve every time he visits with red tail catfish falling to his offerings.
As day turned to night we were joined by a few more friends as Jen had planned a bar b q to see off some friends who are going for a little road trip to Samui and Chang Mai, any excuse for a gathering and a few “cold ones” and a pleasant evening was had in great company and a little warm up for Monday’s Halloween do.
A day of rest today which will probably be our last “day off” before the high season but we’re back at it again from 8.30 tomorrow morning for fishing and a bit of a spooky do as the sun goes down for the kids (large and small!) everyone welcome and of course there will be a few nibbles.
Come and join us for some……….”FUNFISHIN!”…..
