Over the last few days yours truly has been busy refurbishing our kitchen and yesterday afternoon some downtime was called for so with things being so quiet I asked my mate “Flob” aka Dave Roberts if he fancied a little fishing. As it turned out I could not really be bothered and opted to watch Flob at work as he netted over forty fish in a little over two hours. The pacu were going mad for it taking the baits as they hit the water and while they are great fun and a guaranteed bend in the rod tactics were changed to target other species that did work with plenty of Red Tails coming in. As the day drew to a close the Arapaima were on the prowl, showing themselves, teasing and eating just about everything apart for the hooked offerings !…. that’s fishing for ya.
While things are far from ideal now I have to pinch myself from time to time and remind myself how lucky I am watching the sky take on beautiful colours as the sun goes down, sitting with good friends, a few nibbles and a couple of cold ones in our little bit of paradise…..”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!”…..??????????
