01 Feb 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.

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.
