Palm Tree Lagoon – 28th April to 1st May 2018

I didn’t manage to make it over to Thailand last year so booked three weeks in April and May with no real grand plans apart from lots of relaxing, eating and drinking. Of course I couldn’t go to the Land of Smiles without doing some fishing and booked four days at Palm Tree Lagoon, a fishery I’ve seen and read so much

Teak Tree Lake, Thailand – 6th July to 15th July 2016

Since my first visit to Thailand in 2010 with Scott and Ashley when I fell in love with the country and course the amazing fishing on offer, I’ve been back nearly every year and in some cases, twice a year. I’d only ever been to Krabi, Ao Nang and Phang Na in the south and spent two days in Bangkok on my

Thailand – 1st March to 11th March 2016

After a really stressful time of it for the last ten months, I really needed a holiday and of course Thailand would be the destination. It was all a bit last minute but I really wanted to do some fishing and managed to book four days at Exotic Fishing Thailand in Phang Na, a new venue for me. I arrived at Phuket

Gillhams Resort, Thailand – 13th May to 27th May 2014

After another amazing trip to Gillhams last November, I booked up to go again in May and I was really looking forward to seeing everyone, especially Mr Mayo who is now working as a guide at the resort. Time seemed to stand still but eventually the days counted down and it was time to head to Heathrow to begin the long trip

Gillhams Resort, Thailand – 22nd November to 6th December 2013

When me and Scotty were at the wonderful Gillhams Resort in Thailand in May, we met Steve Mayo, Richie Hull and Tony Wynnick and their friend Michael, all top match anglers and great fun to be with. It was Steve’s first time and he fell in love with the place as much as I do and we kept in touch and made plans to

Gillhams Resort, Thailand – 14th to 27th May 2013

Scotty was itching to go back to the lovely Gillhams Resort in Thailand and I needed no persuasion for a return trip so this year we decided to go in May as we’d never been at this time of year and it was also the only time slot Scott could find in his busy match schedule. After a lot of travelling it’s

It’s a funny old game – My Top Ten Posts

Match fishing, it’s a funny old game and that’s why I love it so much. You never know what’s going to happen and I think that’s what keeps us going week after week. You can be the best angler in the world but if the fish aren’t in your peg or they’re not feeding, World Champions can blank like the rest of

Gillhams Resort, Thailand – 11th to 24th September 2012

With Scotty unable to come this year I was a little apprehensive about going to Thailand on my own but everybody at the fantastic Gillhams resort made sure it was a trip to remember. Stuart and his lovely wife Benz, Sean and Noi and of course the fantastic guides, Golock, Joel, Chris and Lee all made sure I had an amazing time.

Gillhams Resort, Thailand September 2011

Me and Scotty headed to Thailand for nearly three weeks and we were staying at the wonderful Gillhams fishing resort for most of it. The place really is heaven and you are looked after so well by Stuart, Sean and Becs along with the guides Scott, Lee and the lovely Golock. We fished for nine days and we caught 95 fish of

Gillhams Resort, Thailand – 22nd September to 30th September 2010

Scotty, Ashley and me headed off to Gillhams Resort in Krabi, Thailand for a nine day fishing holiday and it was brilliant. The fishing was excellent, food was top notch and we met some brilliant people. Stuart and Sean Gillham were the best hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Stuarts wife, Benz, was lovely as was my guide, Golock, the other
