Located primarily in the Eastern and Northern Hemispheres, Asia is the Earth largest continent, covering 44,579,000 square kilometres; it’s also the most populous. It’s home to some of the worlds most stunning and diverse landscapes. The Gobi desert in Mongolia is the worlds sixth-largest. The Yangtze River in China is the continents longest, and the Himalayan Mountains between Nepal and China are the globes tallest.
Tropical rainforests stretch across much of southern Asia, and coniferous and deciduous forests lie farther north.
Asia is bound on the east by the Pacific Ocean, south by the Indian Ocean and north by the Arctic Ocean. Its coastline is equally as impressive as its mainland and spans 62,800 kilometres, making it the longest coastline in the world.
The fishing in Asia is as diverse as the landscape and coastline, and there’s a whole host of fishing opportunities for the travelling saltwater and freshwater angler. One of the most popular destinations is Thailand, well known for its tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and fantastic freshwater fishing. The world-famous Gillhams Resort, Predator Lake, IT Lake, and Bung Sam Lan Lake are home to some of the world’s largest and hardest fighting fish. Species like the Arapaima, Amazon Red Tail, Alligator Gar, Mekong Catfish, Siamese Carp and Giant Snakehead attract anglers from all around the world.
Saltwater fishing in Asia is equally exciting. The Andaman Islands and Oman offer some brilliant big game fishing action, with traditional big game trolling, lure fishing, and jig fishing popular for a whole host of bluewater species. A vast array of formidable fighting predators inhabit the seas, with substantial Giant Trevally, Monster Dogtooth Tunas, Black and Blue Marlin, large Sailfish, Groupers and Sharks all present and willing to take an anglers bait.

"Excellent local knowledge and being able to talk the talk - John Francois is an excellent guide to support and advise in all areas besides his obvious fishing skills. Good quality thai guides who understood various fishing techniques (Noi & Kik) - embraced change particularly when Robbie decided to try float fishing for the carp which proved to be more successful and more fun than the traditional thai method."
"What a great place, people so friendly. fishing guides the greates, pool to relax after(you will need it after you catch a mekong). beutiful setting, great for me and the wife who does not fish, every one so helpful.

"This place is amazing!! This is a paradise for every angler!! my boyfriend and i stayed the for 3 nights last week and we can't complain. He caught 13 fishes in 3 days including 80-85 kg Arapaima. People who work there are so friendly and they are always there for you. I'm not fishing but you can use infinity pool and free wifi plus you can enjoy watching your man fishing many different huge fishes. We definitely coming back next year.
