Fishing in the Bualuang Phuket Fishing Park
Today, Thursday 14th, Iwe took Kannika's family to the nearby Thai run lake. This is the first time any of the family have held a rod although they have used handlines to fish in the River Mekong near to their home in Nong Kai.
It's not easy explaining in Thai language how to cast etc using a fixed spool reel which might explain why the tackle ended up in the trees on a number of occasions. Here is Kannika's brother-in-law, Rung, with the tiniest fish I've ever seen in this lake.....but good to see they are breeding naturally.
It was indeed a very exciting and action packed day...and certainly presented a great contrast to what we had planned for ther family that evening.....which was a trip to the very popular Simon Cabaret (Ladyboy) show in Patong.
