A Freshwater Fisherman In Thailand
By Peter Jaggs
Part fishing guide (the first guide to fishing in Thailand ever published) and part quirky narrative set in Thailand, the Disneyland of freshwater fishing, where fish regularly exceed 80lb (35kg). The fishing tourism industry is booming in Thailand and this pioneering guide has already got angling journalists around the world nibbling at the hook. Stand outside a palm-shaded wooden hut in a Thai fishing park and do battle with a colossal Mekong Giant Catfish. See an exotic Featherback pulled from a muddy canal by a rural Thai angler in a quiet, backwater town. Share a few beers and a magnificent catch of Rohu with a few new friends, and experience a fishing competition with an angry Thai bargirl.
Whatever your fishing preference, this country undoubtedly has it. This book will take you on an exciting journey through the diverse variety of freshwater fisheries in Thailand, and show you how to catch the incredible fish that swim in them. Peter Jaggs provides a humorous and panoramic portrait of the species, tackle, baits and waters; as well as some of the characters that the reader will encounter during his angling adventures in Thailand.
