Quote From Fishing Legend John Wilson MBE.

There can be few more attractive fisheries in the whole of the world, let alone Thailand! Indeed I rate Gillhams as the best man made still water fishery I have ever visited, and I have fished in over 60 countries! I fished and made films at many venues in Thailand, but in visual terms they all lacked the hidden beauty of this fascinating country. Although I was invited to film at Gillhams sadly I never took up the offer, wrong move Wilson, and one I have regretted ever since!

The Best Fishing Guides In Thailand.

The resort provides permanently employed English speaking fishing guides, they work one guide between four anglers and will assist all anglers to the level required. They are on the lake every day, on their days off they fish the lake. The guide’s knowledge of the lake and the fish is second to none, if you listen to their advice and use the rigs we provide and methods they recommend you cant go wrong. Tell the guides what fish you would like to target, and they will try there hardest to get you the fish of your dreams.
