I couldn't wait to get fishing and like everyone who comes here I was hoping to catch some fish that I have been dreaming about catching. I fished for 2 half days and...

I was here some years ago and had a great time with constant support from the Thai guide.This time the guides were English and much less 'hands on': whilst there used to be ¬10 'swims' there are now 25 'swims' but there are only <5 guides and they are therefore much less available to individual anglers.
