Chalong Fishing Park
We enjoy the mid afternoon into the evening sessions and, if it ties in with our own hectic schedule of diverse activities, coming on a Wednesday gives us that added bonus....and the BBQ is really excellent.
(The BBQ is only available to angling customers!!)
Here's Jamie Pullin with a pacu....the manic cousin of the pirhana but which favours nuts over legs.
This over-extension under tension has provided my guests with the opportunity to display an array of contortionist positions around the house the following day in order to ease 'the pain'.
Here's Claire with a nice little redtail catfish...just right to get one started into the bountiful world of Phuket lake fishing.
Jay, meanwhile, was bringing in a steady run of various catfish.
And, not to be outdone, Claire was holding her own with walking and striped catfish along a couple more redtails.
The honours fell to Claire though as with the very last cast she hooked into this fantastic Mekong catfish which we were assured was in the 30-35kg range. It took ages to coax in and Claire handled it all very well thanks to the encouragement of the gathering male crowd. Well Done, Claire.
Now...with all the excitement of the scuba diving and the fishing, I have two very excited Pullins in my house boinging all over the place.
And today the pace is maintained as out Weymouth team (including Debbie and Dick from Weymouth) are off our sea kayaking on the fabulous John Grey 'Hong by Starlight' trip. Many guests rate this trip as the ONE unforgettable experience not to miss...apart from the fishing and diving of course!!
Well Done to our Weymouth friends and well done to JezWilson and his fantastic team for creating such a wonderful and welcoming experience for all to enjoy.
