Amazon Fishing BKK Amazon Fishing Park

Another Bangkok Hooker/ John-Tom fishing trip – this time we were heading into new territory having never fished at Amazon Bkk before. It all sounded a bit too much to be true, an Amazon fishing park in Bangkok and a day ticket price of 500 baht (a tenner in UK money or about $17 US) There must be a catch somewhere!

A few “Go Around” landing experiences in the morning were converted to a personal best on the Fly Rod in the afternoon. The secret to my success today and one of the best tips I can give you is “ask the locals”

A regular angler arrived shortly after lunch, set up his fly rod and was hooked into a small Arapaima within minutes of his first cast.

We asked a few questions and advice was given and acted upon immediately.

The tippet length, retrieve and best area to cast was given for me with the Fly Rod and Oz was given a few pointers for a “popper & fly” combo which turned the day around for both of us.

Personal best on fly is now a 35kg Arapaima, caught with a streamer on 15lb tippet using a 6 weight rod floating WF line

In conclusion, the Catch is Amazon fish in Bangkok at a great price with good food – see you there next week!
