Here is our magnificent team starting to set up with Ace guide, Boy, in the foreground, Mark Butland, Richard Spracklen and 2nd guide, Nim, with Dave Lovelock hiding behind a hanging basket. Me? Behind the camera of course!
Khun Boy poses with a professional grip on the fish at the water's edge for Dorset's Richard Spracklen who is currently sporting a fine leg injury which will not allow him into the water.
Dave Lovelock was busy throughout the whole session catching a variety of species including this more unusual Tiger Catfish.
And, below, Dave again with a nice Siamese Carp.....camera reverted into 'Shake Mode' for that shot (apologies, Dave).
The evening/night was very productive indeed with runs and hook-ups happening all the time...indeed, a very busy 'night' session.
These fish are unbelievably powerful and require a fair time to coax them to the side of the lake for landing.
The fishing, along with a fantastic B-B-Q and the company of some great Irish lads who were also fishing made this a very memorable evening.
