Fishing In Thailand January & February Newsletter 2020

Welcome to another month of captures here in paradise at Gillhams Fishing Resorts. We would like to thank all our readers and everybody that follows us on social media for all your support.


Through January & February Gillhams Fishing Resorts attended The Brentwood Carp Show in Essex, Carp Zwolle in Holland and Northern Angling Show in Manchester. We had really good turn outs as always seeing any regulars as well as meeting many new customers. We would like to thank everybody who came to see us, and off course look forward to seeing everybody out here in the coming months. Gillhams Fishing Resorts would also like to Thank everybody who helped at the shows, we’re always so busy trying to deal with so many potential customers and of course have a catch up with regulars we just wouldn’t be able to deal with everybody without such a great team alongside us.
