Phuket Fishing Park Carp
Ahhh...the frustrations of lake fishing when your knowledge is severely limited. We were given a right lesson in fishing a couple of days ago. Conditions were perfect and the fish were going mad with loads coming to the nets from every swim....except ours. Just shows how much there is to know about angling......I'm spending the next day at the lake with the local Thai guides and paying them to teach me so I can try and improve the catch rate of you guys coming here. It's a great little lake; some real quality fish....but sometimes there's just that bit of attention to some detail I am not seeing which can make all the difference to the catch rate.
Anyhow, enough of 'fish, fish, fish'. Our International Lothario, Keith, was with us over Xmas and turned up with a particularly lively hot Thai Tottie. Here she is bringing our hardworking Xmas Dinner host, Malcome, a brief interlude of friskiness before he had to return to stirring the sprouts.
(Yep, me and The Jai were there....I was taking the photo and Jai was behind me telling me how it should be done...)
Bit of a jumble this Blog....we have been without Internet for 7 days....not good. However, all is now OK and I will keep things updated.
One thing I need to stress though is that it is REALLY important for you to consider your transport options for when you come here. The idea of my place for your holiday is that it gets you away from the hotel scenario....you are here to have your own adventure. Yes, I am here to make things run smoothly but it was never the idea for me to drive people around all day and every day.
Thailand drives on the same side of the road as us. Yes, the driving is nuts but the Brits ARE the best at handling it. Imagine how hard it is for our European cousins to cope with the insanity and to be driving on the opposite side that they are used to. The secret here is to just take it easy. Don't get wound up.....use your driving experience to anticipate the unexpected.....it IS ok. Go and have your own adventure!!!!!
