GREAT TRIP FOR ARA-PAUL-MA


The opening of Exotic Fishing Thailand for fishing has been a lot of work but a fun experience . For me one of the highlights was when my good friend Paul came over to see the progress and also catch some cool fish.

Before I get started showing off Paul's catches I would like to thank Paul for all his support throughout the EFT project . He has not only been there for professional support but also as a true friend. I am always able to make better decisions after a bouncing ideas off Paul.. Even after a few beers or gin and tonics he has never steered me wrong . Well almost never ...


The first Arapaima Paul got his hands on was Harry the Ari a promotional plastic replica on display at the Gaff Restaurant and bar in Chalong..




There was no time wasted the following morning when Paul got his first fish after just a few casts..He was very proud to be the first " Canadian customer" to land an Arapaima at EFT.



Another fish on Paul's list was the Yellow Cheeked carp..These can be seen frequently hunting small Tilapia in the shallow margins around the lake .. Paul put on a bubble float and had this great fish before 9am..



A good sized Asian Redtail was next to hit the net .




Paul caught 34 fish of 12 different species in his 3 days of fishing .His list included Piraba Catfish, Albino Pacu ,Black Pacu, Yellow Cheeked Carp, Arapaima , Amazon Redtails, Asian Redtails, Allgator Gar, Tiger Shovelnose Cross,Siamese Carp, Rohu, and Tambiqui



He landed a total of 6 Arapaimas in his short time here .



He was especially happy with this awesome fish .. Big fish with great colours..

It was great to see you again my good friend and I hope we will see you here in Thailand again soon .Its my 50th next year so that sounds like a great excuse:). The Yellow cheeks will be even bigger by then ...
