Last bit of fishing for Keith

Keith (Downton) leaves us on Monday to return to his freezing fish farm near Blandford. He and Steve (Gilbank) are two really fine carp anglers and it's been great to fish alongside them. We (Keith and I) visited Phuket Fihsing Park for Keith's final bit of fishing, for this year anyway, in Phuket. We aimed to be prepared with a range of baits, pre-tied hair rigs, a selection of float and cage leger rigs and a couple of phones to phone up better anglers for advice.

 Pre-prepared hair rigs loaded up with 3 mini fish pellets.
 With carefully mixed groundbait, stone running legers, hair-rigs buried into the groundbait moulded around the stone, how could we possibly go wrong?..This was guaranteed to be a day of non stop action...not for us the basic method of float fished bread as advised by our Thai Guides. After all, they only work on the lake 6 days a week and 9 hours a day...what could they possibly know????
 Buggar...the pellets didn't work. Never mind...the sweet corn was guaranteed!
 We waited....and waited...and bites at all and the old lake dog fainted...
 So, with great reluctance we returned to those methods as advised by our Guides and immediately we were into I am with a pirhana that raced all around the lake before it finally agreed to come to the net.
And here's Keith with a very nice mekong catfish...a good sized one fo rthis lake. We were into fish simultaneously from then on....thus no more photo's but stacks of action. Moral of the story??? Trust Your Skipper...I mean Guide.

  5. Unfortunately, many managers who really want to do the right thing just don't recognize it when it happens, and they end up handling grievances or,
    worse, lawsuits. Whether you are photographing a wedding or shooting for a magazine, you will have
    much better results photographing the real model
