Kevin Fraser from Aberdeenshire
As is the norm these days we had a couple of days without any customers but yesterday we were happy to welcome Kevin Fraser from Aberdeenshire in Scotland for a session. A fly fisherman back home, Kevin had never tried this style of fishing and was kept busy with different species of Red Tail Cats and Pacu and is planning to return next week.
Our young Russian friend also came in for a short session with his Grandad and while the Arapaima that he was hoping for eluded him he too saw plenty of action.
Some good news at last, firstly it seems that the monsoon shift has started a little early this year with some nice, much-needed downpours and more forecast. Secondly, we are now told that Phuket will open to vaccinated tourists with no need for quarantine from the 1st July and that 70% of the island’s inhabitants will also be vaccinated by then. It won’t happen overnight but a much-needed step in the right direction, boy, do we need it!
In the meantime we are still offering slashed rates, the catch rates are very good and the weekend is with us so why not join us 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!”…..??????????
