A Bit of Fishing – Phuket, Thailand

2014/2/1 A Bit of Fishing – Phuket, Thailand

I went away 21 – 27 January to Phuket, Thailand for business conference and a weekend hoping to cover little fishing.

And the hotel. Le Meridian Phuket in private cove with a sandy beach.

This is what the terrain looks like. Not that easy walking around, but worth the exercise, because you will find…


Mangrove red snappers!

IMGP0152And the largest one I caught was this 3ocm long fish.


Really beautiful fish who fight hard vertically into its nest. I didn’t have a luck catching it in Iriomote Island in Japan, but happily reunited in Thailand.


Just the way I like it with no hustle. 6 wt pack rod with Mikura Candy.


But always be mindful how much you drink and party in one night in town.

And because it does provide jungle village atmosphere.


It is not a dinosaurs that will amuse you with sleeping face down in scorching heat.
