Fishing In Thailand Newsletter May 2013


Sorry for the delay on this report on the fishing in Thailand. As many of you will be aware my father passed away on the 25th of May, and obviously this resulted in me having to fly back to the UK immediately with Becky and Sean following a few days later. I was overwhelmed by the amount of messages we received from our friends and clients; it was a great comfort to all my family to receive so many kind words of sympathy.

As I started this newsletter about my father, I will continue here with a short memory of my dad’s life. Bernard Jack Gillham was 90 years old, married to my mother Marjorie, and they would have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary this year. He was the proud father of my late sister Jenny and my younger sister Helen,

April Newsletter 2013


Once again another month has passed us by, and once again it’s time for another Gillhams Fishing Resorts newsletter compiled by Sean, Geoff, Jut and Joel on the fishing in Thailand. We have had another busy month here fishing in Krabi with many returning clients plus some new faces. We are also having a big move around with the website, as we have joined up with a new web company. Anybody that would like their own place on our website we will be starting an anglers’ blog section where customers can write about their angling experience at Gillhams, you will also be able to add your own photos. We will keep you posted on the many new plans and changes we are making. We also have growing social network sites with our Facebook page Gillhamsfishingresorts getting daily updates on news and catches, plus we are now on Twitter

Krabi Newsletter March 2013


Hello everybody. I hope you all enjoyed Geoff’s ramblings last month, but if you didn’t don’t worry because Stuart and I are back. You haven’t escaped Geoff totally as he will be writing about some of you from March along with Jut Cole, as these are probably the only two guides at Gillhams capable of both reading and writing. We would never be so cruel as to making you read things from Chris Pache aka Mumbles, as he probably writes the way he talks. Nor would we subject you to the broken English and gypsy slang of illiterate Lee.
March has been an extremely hot month as always, leading to some very burnt guests including one lady who collapsed after sitting

Krabi newsletter February 2013


Well hello everybody and welcome to the Gillhams Fishing Resorts newsletter for February 2013. As you know, Stuart and Sean have been on the piss… oops, sorry… I meant advertising the fishing in Thailand in roadshows across Europe. Stuart doesn’t look much different, but I know they went up north to God’s country and did a talk to the Wigan Pike Anglers Club. Now for those who don’t know Wigan, it is very famous for its meat pies and a Wigan kebab is six meat pies on a skewer. Anyway, it looks like Sean visited every pie shop in the area, as he appears to be sporting a few more chins than

Krabi newsletter January 2013


Welcome to another report on the fishing in Thailand here at Gillhams Fishing Resorts in Krab. The dry hot spell here has slowed the fishing down, but for those who persevere the rewards have been OK with some big fish visiting the bank. Sean and I have been in the UK since the 20th January attending fishing shows through the UK and Holland, and what can I say? It’s bloody cold and depressing here, and roll on the 5th March when we can sod off home!
