FIRST CONTEST.


CORRECTLY Name ALL 4 fish in the photos below and win FREE FISHING with one fish bait rod on your next visit to Exotic Fishing Thailand .

2 of the 4 fish have been named before in our prior blog posts so it should be fairly easy BUT i suggest a little careful research as you only get one entry ..

There will be 5 lucky winners.

CONTEST DETAILS;-

Contest Starts May 7th Thai Time ...

The FIRST 5 people to CORRECTLY name ALL 4 fish will win.

The answers and winners will also be revealed June 1st ONLY here on our blog .

The prize is not transferable [ only the winner can redeem the prize].

Only 1 entry per person.

The " PRIZE" is an ADDITIONAL FISHING WITH BAITFISH ROD to your paid day ticket price of one carp and one bait fish rod . YES That means your 3rd rod [ bait fish rod or if you prefer Carp rod ] is FREE..

The value of the free bait fish rod is 2000 baht per day and can be used for consecutive fishing days up to a maximum of 10 days, TOTAL Value 20,000 baht..

Please use both the English common name and Thai name for the fish .

Congratulations to Adam Cook who was the only person to identify all 4 fish correctly . Andy Cartwright also identified all 4 fish correctly BUT added that the Yellow Cheek carp is AKA the Chinese Seerfish which is unfortunately incorrect ..We will have another contest before we open so stay tuned for another chance at more prizes.

  10. Will be interesting to see if "Adam Cook" comes to you to collect his prize Mike. Run another contest for some free fishing, "who can identify the real identity of "Adam Cook?"

  11. As explained on Fishing in Thailand facebook ."Adam Cook" has since cancelled his trip to Thailand .Adam is welcome to claim his prize any time in the next year but except for him ,there are no winners . The reason there are no winners is because nobody answered the questions correctly ..If there are any concerns about the identity of the fish in the contest please check with Fish base and other sources and you will see why there are unfortunately no winners. We will be running another competition soon with new fish to identify.
