Lure & Fly Fishing | IT Lake Monster | Thailand  

Tour code: THA002  

Thailand is an amazing place and with all the different species of fish that live there, we thought it was time to offer them to you. We have access to the one and only Predator Lake, which offers anglers the chance to do battle with such a fish as Arapaima and the famous Redtail Catfish that grow to gigantic sizes. This is truly the way to see Thailand.

For those of you who have not yet heard about this lake, it is located 2 hours drive from Bangkok. The water is around 5 acres with grass banks all round, which offers awesome fishing for numerous Thai native and non-native predator species, either by lure or fly fishing. A big population of Arapaima up to 180 kg inhabits the lake.

As your holiday starts and ends in Bangkok, we have included your first and last day fishing for Giant Catfish at Bung Sam Lan Lake, which is a great way to start and end your stay. The Mekong Giant Catfish in Bung Sam Lan originates from The Mekong River, hence, the name. They are known as the real giants of the Catfish world.

On the complex there is a central covered area, which provides a welcome break from the sun and is where you can purchase cold drinks and food. This lake is strictly open for lure and fly-fishing only, as generally live or dead bait fishing is prohibited. However, we have made a special exclusive agreement with the lake’s owner, so if you fancy a change, starting 2.00 PM to 7.30 PM, our clients are allowed to fish free lining or bottom fishing using live or dead bait.
