Krabi newsletter August 2010

Hi all. The hardest part of writing this newsletter on the fishing in Thailand is where to start… oh, and what can’t be put in print although we would love to! We are still getting some unusual weather patterns – August should have been a dry month but we had more rain than usual, and September should be our wettest month and we are basking in the sun.

We are getting a lot of people worried about the works to extend the lake, but please don’t be; it won’t affect the lake or your peace and quiet, as we are digging well away from the side boundary. We will be doing the job slowly and carefully with just me and a machine driver plus a couple of workers, as we want to do the job with the minimum disturbance. We are digging the top lake first then diverting the stream and drainage so all work is away from the main lake until at least February. We are not taking the middle section out and joining the lake until we are closed in mid-April, and at the same time we will dig to the boundary and complete the work. That way we will not disturb our guests or the fish until we are closed. We haven’t set a date yet for the works, but we will probably start in November to coincide with the dry season.

I had a close shave this month when I went to hospital in Bangkok for a quotation on a hernia operation, plus I had been getting pains in my stomach for a few weeks. Upon explaining the pain to the doctor, she suspected ulcers and recommended a camera down my throat, during the routine questions I was asked when the last time was that I’d had a colonoscopy. Apparently everyone over the age of 40 should have one to detect cancer, and even more so if your family has a history of cancer. Well, alarm bells started ringing as my granddad and older sister both fell foul of the big C and died young. Upon being told they insert a camera up your bum, I was horrified, having visions of a Canon Eos being rammed up the old poo chute! What Les Bamford does for fun I was being charged 400 quid for, but thinking health means more than money, I shakily agreed. When I came out of the anesthetic the doctor said they had removed a small lump, and I spent the next three days crapping myself until the results.

Three days later the first result was the hernia, and I need an operation, probably due to my overeating, drinking and self-abuse, making my ever-expanding gut split! The next result was the camera down the throat, which showed three badly inflamed ulcers, meaning eating crap for two months with no alcohol and no curries, so I was feeling well sorry for myself! Next test result was from the growth that was removed, and the doctor informed me I was one of the luckiest people she had met, as the lump was a very early stage of cancer and they are 99% certain they have removed it successfully! Phew! All of a sudden from feeling sorry for myself I was the happiest chap on earth, and all the other ailments just sank into oblivion. Some final test in November should give me the all clear. Why was this test not done in the last 16 years in the UK? Apparently if you don’t ask you don’t get – typical National Health Service – you pay all you life and get bugger all in return. My advice to all of you out there if you are over the big four-O is to go to your doctor and insist on a colonoscopy – prevention is better than something that has no cure! Oh and by the way, the camera is microscopic so you don’t feel a thing, a bit like my willy!

Steve, our moaning chef, returned this month after having two weeks in England for his daughter’s wedding, plus catching up with other friends and family. On his arrival back here you would think some time off was all that was needed for our stressed out cook, but as many customers know who have been here before, he is only happy when he is miserable! Now to add to all this Steve had fallen in love with some schoolgirl from a bar in Phuket, and believe it or not she actually had a worse attitude than him! After a few weeks of her being here she started to believe that she was not only god’s gift, but also one of the bosses, and proceeded to push past people including me and our guests, plus bossing the staff around. Our workers were not happy being told what to do by a stuck up kid, and as things went from bad to worse Steve was given the facts and told to sort the brat out or pack your bags. Steve informed us that things were getting sorted, and he had noticed the way the child was behaving! Steve took a stand and did the only thing he knows how to – burying his head in the sand and thinking that the problem would go away. Little did he know, but that was exactly what was about to happen, and by the following evening the problem and Steve had gone away! We now have a new chef on his way from England, Adam Gladding, who was trained by Marriot Hotels, so look out for some new additions to the menu, and no more mutterings of, “For f—‘s sake” when more than two people order at once. Anybody who was worried before about interrupting Steve from watching his Man Utd TV channel to order a meal, you need worry no more as Adam is a fellow fisherman, so in future guests can chat fishing and order food without feeling a nuisance. As a final note we would all like to wish Steve the best of luck in the future.

Little Jack’s playground is now complete with his playhouse, swings, slide, sandpit and climbing frame, plus all his toys and paddling pool. We have had to put a roof over the play area due to the sun making the Astroturf too hot to walk on, even though it’s funny to see how fast the little fella can run when he’s got hot coals under his feet! The playground is also a nice addition for guests’ children to play in (as it was for Steve’s girlfriend!) – that’s if they can get a look in, as the play area has become Sean and Joe’s favorite hangout! Jack’s swimming lessons are coming on well; he is now very confident and enjoys scaring everybody by running to the edge of the pool, then just before jumping in the little git stops, looks at the panic in everybody’s faces, and starts laughing.

Our Asian red tail catfish are spawning successfully with lots showing up around ½ lb to 2lb, and the greedy sods are taking whole fish baits that aren’t far off their own size. All these baby red tails are being removed and put in our stock ponds around the resort, so that they can be grown on and not get eaten by the big boys that roam the waters here. One baby Asian red tail was actually very thankful for the move after being caught, as just as he was about to be netted an arapaima exploded out of the water from nowhere, trying to eat the little fella, who only escaped due to jumping in the air and the angler pulling him out the way. Luckily for the red tail the angler in that split second thought about saving the little bloke rather than catching the arapaima and exchanging the size fish on his hook. Afterwards though he was kicking himself for that decision.

For those of you who wonder how come someone as thick as Gillham writes with minimum spelling mistakes etc, the answer is simple – we have a proofreader, Phil Escott. Now Phil has a good laugh, and sends me many sarcastic comments about many of my blunders, so here are some extracts of sarcasm from Mr. Escott from the last newsletter. Here he is, complaining about my use of the word ‘minuet’ instead of ‘minute’…
‘When I proofread sentences like, “I was going to put my rods out, but I stopped for a minuet,” it does amuse me, because a minuet is a slow stately court dance in 3/4 time from the 17th century, and the vision of some fat angler performing it in chest waders is a powerful one…
Anyway, onto the dancing… I dunno what it is with you chaps… “Benz thought Johnny’s trampoline was cool, claiming after five minuets to have lost several kilos…”… You do love your 17th century dancing! I’d love to have seen it on a trampoline! And what about this? “…and the flight on to Krabi is just one hour and 20 minuets…” If you think I’m going to prance away to classical music on the KL flight just to save a few quid, then you can think again… I’m getting the more expensive one from Bangkok where you don’t have to dance… And I love this one… “…returning to the surface he came ashore and checked the gauge which was showing 40 minuets left…” What happens if you fancy a little sub-aqua boogie, but there are no minuets left on the gauge? Or does that mean he’s not allowed to surface if he hasn’t finished his allotted number of dances? And the best of all… “Around 35 minuets later Mike was the proud captor of a 220lb arapaima…” Now that is an impressive dancing marathon, especially with an arapaima attached to a fly rod… Well done, Mike!
There are a few other regular delights, which escape me right now, but my favourite has to be certain species of fish in your lake, which, according to you, have ‘barbells’! No wonder they get so big with all that weight training! It’s ‘barbules’… The vision of catfish bench-pressing in the shallows did amuse me…’
So as you can see Phil is getting it when he arrives next month – revenge is going to be mine in October as he is coming to visit us. So expect to see pictures of him in Speedos! His biggest fear is making Gillham’s Gripe. Well he will do that if he backs out on his promise to shave his dreadlocks off when here. (Watch this space!) (Oi! I never promised! I said I might… Phil.).

So here it is; the bit some of you hate and some love. I get lots of feedback about Gillham’s Gripe, with many of you saying it’s your favourite bit. Apparently it makes many people think about everything in it prior to coming, therefore arriving with an open mind and the right attitude to enjoy their fishing holiday in Thailand.
Eating fly rods – what is the crack? After catching fish on a fly rod the most important thing is to get their picture with the fly rod in their cakehole. It’s as if they don’t even care about the fish as long as the rod’s in the frame, and to make things worse the poor fishing guide not only has to deal with the fish but also has to put up with the rod, hook and the eyes of the rod sticking in their face and nearly poking their eyes out! For Christ’s sake come on, people – you have already caught the fish on your fly rod, and you’re having your picture taken with it, so why all the extra hassle of messing around with the rod in your teeth and taking longer with the pictures, stressing the fish out more than is needed? Why don’t Sage or someone bring out the fly rod mouth grip, as teeth chip the varnish, or you end up with chewed up corks looking like a rat noshed it! In Thailand we have a festival where a load of dins parade around the streets with objects impaled through their faces, so why don’t fly fishermen do the same? It would save the teeth if they had holes drilled in their cheeks to accommodate the rod! Luckily people who go shooting don’t put a bloody twelve-bore between their teeth for a trophy shot, or do they?

Another common question is, “Why is my picture not in the newsletter?” Many times there just is not enough room to put them all in. We get asked, “Why you didn’t use my picture, as it’s better than some you used?” Cos you never f—–g sent it, so how could we use it? Some of you don’t want us to take your pictures off the card due to your pervy ones being on the camera, and despite promising to send us the pictures they never arrive, or if they do it’s a month too late.
Whingeing about other guys catching when they have the advantage of tackle which they bought themselves, not bothering to check depths, find sandy spots, or bait up regularly and not being arsed to bring, or even use a spod, are all also very annoying traits. Of course other anglers catch more! Surely it’s the same at home – effort equals results, and no effort equals sod all!

Finally (honest!), manners; some people seem devoid of them. Lucky my old ma ain’t here, as she would have the stick out! Some examples are when we are serving in the restaurant and people say, “Get me a drink,” or when checking in saying, “Get my bags to the room,” with no bloody please or thank you! Thailand is a third world country so we suffer a lot of power cuts; they are warned of this on arrival but still come to tell us they have no electric, and when told that it’s a power cut, we still get told that they want the power on now! The other week we had a ruptured water pipe, and my staff were frantically working their cocks off trying to repair it as soon as possible. But that still didn’t stop one “Get my bags now” person wanting it fixed now! Then we get the ones who order a drink or food in English, and when our staff get it a bit wrong they have a tantrum, calling our staff stupid! These people had a very limited education, but speak two languages, so if you are so bloody bright tell them in Thai! Or just accept that sometimes you get water instead of a soda – after all, it’s easy to ask them to change it.

That’s me for this month folks, so on to the catch report. The total catch for the month is as follows: 686 fish of 21 species, made up as follows: 39 arapaima to 360lb, nine arawana to 8lb, four alligator gar to 28lb, 182 Amazon red tail catfish to 80lb, 39 Asian red tail catfish to 40lb, two barramundi to 15lb, 28 black pacu to 25lb, one Chao Phraya catfish of 45lb, one giant gourami of 7lb, one giant stingray of 110lb, four Julian’s golden prize carp to 24lb, 13 Mekong catfish to 150lb, three rohu to 10lb, seven spotted featherback to 10lb, 288 Siamese carp to 75lb, ten striped snakehead to 3lb, 31 shovel nosed spotted sorubim to 45lb, 11 shovel nosed tiger catfish to 20lb, four tambaqui to 44lb, two wallago attu to 20lb and seven wallago leeri to 25lb.

This month has once again seen some nice people and good anglers, plus some returning clients who have become friends like Mike Ward. Mike, who is a schoolteacher in the UK, left his students behind enjoying their summer break, and made his return trip to us after attending an old student’s wedding on the stunning beach at Railey Bay, 20km from us. With his targets set to beat his PB’s from his last trip, plus some new species, after a couple of days’ fishing Mike set a rod up for arawana and went stalking these stunning exotic mini species. After three days of chasing them around the lake, the arawana were being a bit cunning. They would snatch the bait and swim off, only to jump and throw the bait and hook. So he gave up on them and moved swims to avoid the frustration of watching the same two arawana swimming around under his rod tips, obviously taking the piss. On his first cast in the new area, Mike cast a whole sea bait on a size 4/0 hook down the margins for other species and caught his arawana after all. Also during his stay he caught Siamese carp to 65lb, Amazon red tail catfish to 70lb, Asian red tail catfish to 32lb and a tambaqui of 44lb. In all Michael landed 40 fish of nine species, making him a very happy angler, and hopefully his students won’t get any rollockings for at least the first few days he’s back at school.

Next to arrive was Stretton Honor with his son Alex. Although they have fished in Thailand many times, this was their first trip to Gillhams. They booked a four-day four-night stay that was soon to extend to a seven-day seven-night stay! On arrival, Stretton was eager to start, so after a quick lunch it was off to the bungalow, and out on the lake for him, while his son Alex enjoyed the swimming pool (or was it the female guests in bikinis?). During their stay they both caught some good fish, plus taking a day off to try the Krabi sea canoe trip. This not to be missed trip is just a short drive away to the tidal rivers, surrounded by lush jungle and mangroves. You paddle the canoes into the sea caves, with old paintings on the walls from many years ago where the sea gypsies once lived. During their stay, Stretton fished most days while Alex had a good holiday chilling out around the pool bikini watching, plus doing a few hours’ fishing and catching a few fish, with the icing on the cake being a 200lb arapaima. Stretton caught 15 fish of eight different species, and the three best catches were a Mekong catfish of 100lb, Siamese carp to 60lb and a massive arapaima at 320lb.

Ashley De-Jager from Holland made a return trip this month, and this time he came with his father Rene, plus his father’s girlfriend, also called Rene (lucky his dad wasn’t called Dave!). Ashley was all up for catching a Mekong catfish but while a few came out around him, he was unable to catch one, but he is returning at Christmas so I am sure Santa will reward him then! He did land 42 fish of five species during his stay, but his father Rene upstaged him with some cracking fish. Although Rene didn’t fish every day like Ashley, due to day trips and shopping with his other half, he well and truly gave Ashley a spanking. By the end of the trip he had caught 28 fish of seven species including three arapaima over 300lb with his PB hitting 360lb.

Michael Game came to Gillhams for the first time, booking his trip through Angling Direct in the UK. Like so many others he found them very helpful and hassle free with great rates. Check them out for yourself at On arrival time was getting on, so Michael would have to wait until the following morning before he could get started. He settled for a nice meal with a few beers followed by an early night ready for some action first thing in the morning. Michael was the kind of fisherman we like here at Gillhams, laid back, no bullshit and happy just catching fish, which don’t have to be the biggest in the lake. One thing he did want was different species, and as he had never fished in Asia or South America everything was going to be new to him. The fishing on the first day was fairly slow, but Michael still managed to bank a few. As the week went on the fishing was improving and Michael’s fish list was looking good, and by the end of his stay he had caught 27 fish of ten species, including Mekong catfish to 120lb, Amazon red tail catfish to 60lb, gourami, black pacu, Siamese carp, sorubim, Asian red tail catfish and a striped snakehead. Plus he had the fight and fright of his life when one of his rods baited with snails ripped off, and after a 30-minute fight he landed a 110lb giant freshwater stingray! Now back in the UK Michael is busy planning a return trip.

Dan Livesley came to Gillhams while on his honeymoon, so he could only get in a couple of days. Dan had never been here before, and his new bride was concerned what the accommodation would be like at a fishing resort. She had nothing to fear, as Gillhams is a five-star resort (apart from the fishing, which is ten-star!). In fact she was so impressed with what we have on offer here she has asked if they can return. Dan works as an anti-corruption police officer back in the UK; he was amazed about what goes on in Thailand, and reckons if he worked here for five years he would earn enough in overtime to buy Gillhams! In his two days’ fishing he caught 14 fish, topped off by a good Mekong catfish at 130lb.

Wilson Chan came for a few days fishing. The English ex-pat living in Singapore takes advantage of the low cost airlines and short flights to Krabi, and is fast becoming another regular here at Gillhams. Fishing for three days Wilson landed nine fish of four species with Siamese carp to 40lb, Asian red tail catfish to 30lb, Amazon red tail catfish, and a 110lb Mekong catfish.

Barry Newman returned after his visit last year while on his honeymoon, and this time he came with his wife and friend Trevor Brown. Trevor, who doesn’t fish much back home, just wanted to catch a PB, which wasn’t going to be too hard, as it currently stood 20lb. With it being his birthday while he was here, we all hoped that he would get lucky with a special birthday present fish. Barry, on the other hand, is into his fishing and gets as much in as possible, with trips to local waters as well as Spain and France. Barry, after seeing an arapaima rolling in the top corner, decided to move on them, and after two hours he struck into something big. After 30-minute fight with the beast of the deep a huge arapaima rolled over the top of the cage. It was one of the known big girls here and weighs in at around 320lb. Even though it wasn’t Barry’s birthday that day it certainly was a special gift for any angler. With the photos done it was time for an early finish and a joint celebration down the town, returning at 5am with very sore heads, but a good night was had by all. During their stay Barry caught seven fish of four species while Trevor caught 12 fish of four species, smashing his PB with a 54lb Siamese carp.

Neil Cobley once again returned just two months after his last trip here, once again with his wife Mandy and children, fishing by the hour so that he could spend time with the family with trips to the beach, hot springs, emerald pools etc. During his stay he also fell ill, due to not drinking enough water, which did mess his fishing up for four days. Apart from the usual target of a big Siamese carp Neil also wanted a big Mekong catfish, and armed with around 40kg of Nutrabaits boilies and a spod rod, he proceeded to bait heavily after finding his spot with a plumbing rod. Mekong catfish and Siamese carp love big beds of bait, and after a few days Neil was creeping up the big fish ladder with three 60lb-plus carp under his belt before disaster struck. Now let’s give Neil a slight excuse here due to being sick, but after changing his rig, within ten minutes was into a big fish. Even though none of us could see the fish it had all the trademarks of a big Mekong catfish (just to make Neil feel better, possibly even a new world record).

After a fast take the fish took a slow plod around the lake down to the bottom end, and then back up the top end of the lake. On the fish’s next return towards the bottom end of the lake the line went slack, and a silence fell as nobody likes to see a grown man cry. But the tears were about to get worse as this wasn’t just a hook pull; it turned out the knot that Mr. Cobley had just tied 30 minutes before actually came undone and the fish was lost by his own handiwork! Neil went on to catch some other good fish, 43 in total, of eight species, including the three big Siamese carp. He also had arapaima to 180lb, ten Amazon red tail catfish to 80lb, plus a new PB tambaqui at 45lb. Neil claims to be having a two-year break from Gillhams to go to Florida etc with the kids… Yeah right, see you in a few months, Neil!

Eddie and Lynn Grey returned following their last trip here at Christmas, and this time accompanying them was daughter Kim and her friend Loes. Starting their holiday in Phuket and having nothing but rain, they were very happy when arriving at Gillhams to hot sunny days and just a few scattered showers. During Eddie’s week’s fishing he landed 22 fish of seven species, which included a 56lb Amazon red tail catfish, two 50lb Siamese carp, a 120lb Mekong catfish and a 120lb arapaima. The girls also did some dangling for the Java barbs in between daytrips and chilling around the pool, plus causing mayhem with the male population of Ao-Nang. One night I had to pick them up at 1am, and upon arriving at the prearranged spot, I was greeted by two inebriated girls. Kim attempted to enter the car in ladylike fashion to impress her trail of young drooling lads, but on launching herself into the back of the car, she banged her head and dented the roof! The journey home was very entertaining listening to them describing various talent they had spotted; they sounded just like blokes describing the talent on offer. Comments like, “This one had a great body but ugly face,” or, “Lovely face, shame about the body.” I dread to think how they described me, but I did hear Kim did say I reminded her of Brad Pitt, or maybe I misheard her slurred speech and she called me a bad git!

Phil Sherwood came with his family from Dubai. Phil was mainly interested in fly fishing, but did fit in some bait fishing with his young son Tom. Mornings and evenings Phil would fly fish, and the rest of the time he would bait fish with Tom. Tom caught five fish of three species, with the biggest being a 30lb sorubim catfish, and also a spotted featherback. Phil didn’t catch anything on baits, but his fly fishing was a success. After putting in a lot of effort in and losing an arapaima at the net, Phil went onto catch an alligator gar of 30lb, barramundi of 16lb-plus, and then landing his target fish with a nice 80lb arapaima, not to mention hooking a tarpon that unfortunately jumped and spat the fly. If he had landed it he would have been the first person to land an Atlantic tarpon in Thailand, unless my old amigo the little bald Frenchman Jean-Francois Helias has caught one, as it must be one of the few species the fishing fanatic has not caught in Thai waters!

Mark Pickering returned for ten days, this time accompanied by his partner Allison, who was happy just chilling out around the pool. The last few fishing holidays they have been on haven’t had the stunning surroundings that we have here, being surrounded by national park and huge lime karsts covered in lush jungle, or our Infinity swimming pool overlooking the lake and tropical gardens, plus the lakeside restaurant and five-star bungalows. Mark started fishing and was quick to inform us that the people we talk about in Gillhams Gripe that sit around doing nothing, not checking depths or finding sandy spots or recasting and baiting was his type of fishing, saying he was on holiday and didn’t want to bother with all the hard work of baiting heavily and accurate casting (honesty always goes a long way here at Gillhams). Bearing in mind what Mark had said, Sean suggested he fished in the narrow area of the lake, where you don’t have to cast far and don’t need a lot of groundbait due to it being a small, narrow stretch. Heavy baiting and recasting in this area seems to spook the fish, but you do tend to pick up more red tail and sorubim catfish, plus the other catfish species in this channel. During Mark’s stay he caught 47 fish of eight species, mainly red tail catfish up to 75lb. Mark’s biggest catch of the trip was an arapaima of 230lb. Mark and Allison, like many others before, on reluctantly leaving, booked and paid their deposit for their return trip here the same time next year.

Monthly angler John Duffy once again returned, still wanting his 100lb Siamese carp and a big Mekong catfish. He proceeded to jump in Cobley’s corner as the swim has become known, and started baiting heavily. On his first day John matched his personal best Siamese carp of 65lb, and with a start like that he was either in for a good trip or it was going to be all downhill from there on in. John was here once again for a week’s trip, and even though he didn’t have the number of fish he did the previous month, the sizes of the fish were in good order. The Mekong catfish moved in on the bait and he had four in three evenings with the sizes going as follows: 130lb, 135lb, 140lb, 155lb, and in total John caught 19 fish of five species. John also lost one day’s fishing due to getting messy one evening in our bar, and drinking us out of Black Label whiskey and tequila. It was entertaining to hear John’s drunken ramblings – apparently he cooks the best spaghetti bolognaise on the planet! As more drink went down his gullet he kept telling Becca my daughter that his friend likes fat girls, and if she played her cards right she could pull him on his next trip! (At around that time he started drinking whiskey with spit replacing the water!). The following morning, not being able to fish due to a mega hangover, we also told him about some of his comments to Rebecca, which even though they were not meant in a rude way, left John feeling shy around the restaurant.

Top day ticket angler this month was Zain Fernandez, our first guest from Zimbabwe. The first day was slow with Zain only catching one Siamese carp of 23lb, but like any true angler knows, it’s not all about catching every fish that swims in one day. Some days are slow and others are excellent, and you can’t do any wrong. After Zain finished his first day’s fishing only catching the one fish, he booked the following day and had no idea just what was in store for him. The second day arrived and he was fishing by 8am, then straight away on his first cast he was into an arapaima that weighed in at around 90lb. The day just kept getting better; it really was his red letter day, and by the time he finished at 7pm he had caught ten fish of four species, including a 50lb Amazon red tail catfish, a 40lb Siamese carp, and a cracking arapaima of 260lb. It just shows that here at Gillhams you can have a poor day and then the next catch a fish of a lifetime. Some days are slow, but it only takes that one fish or one day and all your dreams can come true.

Rob Maylin of Big Carp magazine and family friend joined us once again, but this time on more of a family holiday, accompanied by wife Flo, her dad José, sister Karen, children Ashley, Max and Tasha, and Karen’s other half Glyn. Although fishing was involved, as it always is with Mr. Maylin, so were some nights out on the lash! With two birthdays falling during the trip, one being Karen’s the other Flo’s, which left some very tender heads, Rob claimed a slight touch of sunstroke, but really it was excessive amounts of alcohol that caused the missing day spent in his pit claiming to be dying! During their limited fishing time Glyn and Rob banked some nice fish. Glyn came out on top for sizes with arapaima to 80lb and Siamese carp to 55lb, and in all Glyn landed 14 fish of six species. Rob came out more on numbers by landing 19 fish of three species, the biggest being a 44lb Siamese carp. After leaving us they were off to Phi Phi Island for a fun family holiday chilling out on the beach and around the pool, spending some much needed time with their loved ones due to work and every day life normally getting in the way back in the UK.

That’s about it for another month folks, as space is running out. Sorry if you never made the newsletter, but if you missed Gillham’s Gripe you did ok! If you are planning a trip this year bear in mind November is nearly full. October and December are OK, plus we still have a couple of places left for Christmas. 2011 is starting to get busy too, so I advise you not to leave it too long, and remember we are closed from the 25th April through to the 1st June. Up until April 2011 Angling Direct are offering some cracking deals to Gillhams, plus a guided trip with the old legend Dave Plummer in August, so check them out at

Once again many thanks to you all for your support of this newsletter. To book your dream trip with us call Stuart on +66 (0)861644554 or email us on
Best wishes from Stuart, Sean and all the team here at Gillhams Fishing Resorts.
