Mark and Art visit Lek's Fishing Park in Udon Thani, NNE Thailand
|This carp is darker in appearance than the Siamese Carp and is called an Indian Carp/|
Mark and Art hopped on a plane at Phuket and 90 minutes later had travelled 1400 km to the NNE landing at Udon Thani with the intention of spending two days at Lek's Fishing Park.
This is where we (Russell Shaw, Richard Spracklen, Dave Lovelock with me and my crutches) enjoyed a couple of days 'Stag Party' fishing before that very memorable wedding we attended in Nong Kai right on the northern Thai border last January.
There's a very informative Facebook page for those interested.....just search....
Lek's Fishing Park Udon Thani
.....and enjoy the excellent photography courtesy of Doug Isles' very talented daughter.

And now...I have swiped the information below direct from the Facebook page.....take a read and see what Lek's is all about complete with contact information.

|Another night-time carp for Art|
|The sawi catfish....be careful of the spine on the dorsal fin which is capable of inflictng a very painful wound.|
|Mark's 15kg Tambaqui.|
|It's essential to cover up from the blazing sun!|
|Mark concentrated on the carp to allow Art to fish the Arapaima swim.|
|I mean....look at it! Ridiculous level of comfort and style.....we anglers are thoroughly spoilt at Lek's Fishing and throughout Thailand in general!!|
|This IS absolute luxury...it's a privilege to fish here.|
|The 'first' swim boats a lovely pool for the angler to cool off in whilst still able to watch the rods...good job all the reels are quality bait runners!!!!|
|I know...it's sad to put pictures of the rods and their spacious platform....but this is something else. What a wonderful way to spend a few days.|
|Another shot of the pool swim.|
|The fishing IS amazing but to just relax here and enjoy the peace and quiet and the view across the lake would be enough!|
|What a beautiful view acorss the lake.|
