When the fish are biting nothing else matters!

When the Fish are biting
A quiet Saturday with the weather at this time of year working against us, when its raining they don’t want to get wet and when its sunny they run for the beach or the pool and who could blame them ? That said the rain does not deter the fish and sometimes its more comfortable being a little damp than being too hot.
We did welcome a Danish Dad’nLad duo who asked us what the chances of catching were when they arrived in the morning. I smiled, told them not to worry and they would catch lots, perhaps the looks on their faces showed a little doubt but that soon changed as they “bagged up” on Siamese Carp, Striped Catfish, Pacu, Red Tails, a bonus Chao Phraya Catfish and hooked but lost Arapaima. Very happy with their days work they left beaming and wowing to return.
We also had a couple of our season ticket customers join us in the afternoon and our pal Tim Darton was once again using his fly rod. Our mutual friend Neil got wind of this and as our planned sea fishing trip aboard “Fish Eagle” was blown off he bought his fly tying kit along, something he says he has not opened for near on 40 years. They went through the goodies and after several fly’s were tried the Red Tail Cats could not resist them, mission accomplished !
Our mate Paul came along with better half Ann and Daughter Elly who is Jazzy’s best fried at school, the pair of them were straight in the pool before deciding to catch some Java Barb, which they both succeeded in doing so jazzy had her first pupil and Elly caught her first fish, lovely and very nice afternoon around “the office” with a few cold ones in great company, compensation for the lack of customers.
The staff and the fish had a rest day yesterday but we are all back at it again from 8.30 this morning. There is a little wet stuff forecast for the coming week but there is shelter all around the lake and the fish really don’t care so if the beach or the pool are not that appealing and you can brave a little rain why not get involved, you won’t be disappointed with probably the nearest thing you will get to a guaranteed catch so come and join us for some………”FUNFISHIN!”……….🎣🎣🎣🐠🐠🐠🐟🐟🐟😎😎😎

Another Looong Month Ends

Another Looong Month Ends-Amazon Redtail

MORNING WORLD…..

 
As another looong month ends and there is a feeling that things are set to improve soon though personally I think it will get a little tougher for a while before it gets better. It,s good news that the restaurants can now serve grown up drinks and if the powers that be allow the bars to reopen and restrictions lessened people will start to return, simple as that.
 
We were thankful for one customer yesterday, Pacal from the Netherlands returned and had a busy day with several species and the pics above show just a small selection of his catch.
 
The weekend is with us, the weather looks ideal for fishing, the fish are always hungry and the prices remain slashed. It can’t stay like this for ever so why not make the most of it and 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!”…..??????????

Arapaima on the Fly

MORNING WORLD…..

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!”

More Happy Hookers-Siamese Carp

MORNING WORLD…..

 
More happy hookers from Israel and England, lots of fish and lots of variety with Siamese Carp, Big Head Carp, Amazon, Asian and Tiger Red Tail Catfish, Walking Catfish, Pacu and a tiny little Java Barb that somehow managed to take Julian’s bait which still did not prove to be enough as he was beaten by his Son Nathan in their mini match.
 
English angler Andre Gysler had booked for the day and while he and his good lady tucked into a full English breakfast prior to fishing he asked me if we ever did any fly fishing here. This style of fishing is not something that I am very familiar with but we did have a customer a few days prior who did well on the fly in the afternoon. In turns out that Andre has Fly fished for England for UK Lockstyle Fly Fishing Team so I wasted no time in contacting my good mate Neil Campbell to see if we could arrange some tackle. Neil was more than happy to oblige and turned up with the gear just after lunch, the rods were set up and the debate started as to which flys’ should be used. The sun was high with not so many fish showing but it was still a joy to watch Andre doing his magic. He decided to go back to our normal methods for a couple of hours where he had plenty of fish and then as the sun was starting its decent he was back on the fly rod. By this time there were a few more spectators and a cheer went up as we witnessed a Tiger Red Tail Catfish take Andre’s offering and the fight insued. Great to watch and smiling faces all round.
 
The weekend is with us, we have a few bookings but there is still plenty of availability. We are still offering discounted rates giving unequalled value for money so why not join us. PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE COMING and enjoy some……”FUNFISHIN!”…..🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣😎

We’ve Been Way Busier

We’ve Been Way Busier

We've Been Way Busier-fish on

MORNING WORLD…..

 
Over the last few days we’ve been way busier than any time in the last few weeks, months or for that matter the last year and some, and I for one will not be apolagising for posting regularly and bigging up the Phuket Sandbox.
 
Our young friend Mason from The Netherlands was here with his Dad and his Brother for the third time, they met up with some other friends and had lots of fish from various species. Mason was after one of the Arapaima but the fickle fish had a different plan and decided to take the bait that Tim and his lad Lucas offered giving them their second Arry in as many visits, they’re back to Dubai soon, one sandbox to another, until next year. James from the UK joined us for the afternoon, he was kept very busy and has already booked to come back today.
 
A slightly quieter day with a few no shows but hey, who’s complaining, more of the same today and if this is a bit of you please contact us first, take advantage of the slashed rates and come and enjoy some ……”FUNFISHIN!”……🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎
