Fly fishing is not popular in Thailand but there is an ever increasing number of local fishermen discovering the sport. The local anglers are discovering new venues on a weekly basis and they are published on the local web boards - unfortunately these forums are in Thai script so for those who can not read thai it is difficult to obtain the information.

This page will introduce the more popular venues for Fly Fishing In Thailand and will cover free and pay to fish locations. GPS coordinates and maps are included where applicable.

Fly Fishing Barramundi at Bor Num, Bangpakong, Thailand

Bor Num is set out so that around 40% of the perimeter of the pond has a clear area for back cast so it is ideal for fly fishing beginners and the more experienced hands as well, the shop has a limited number of fly rods for hire and basic instruction is available from the staff at Bor Num. The price for fly fishing is the same as the other rods at 100THB per rod per day and rod hire is 100 THB per day.

The fly fishermen seem to have a better catch rate than the other lure methods so a great days fishing is almost certain.

Amazon Fly Fishing Amazon fishing Puttamonton Bangkok

Another Bangkok Hooker/ John-Tom fishing trip - this time we were heading into new territory having never fished at Amazon Bkk before. It all sounded a bit too much to be true, an Amazon fishing park in Bangkok and a day ticket price of 500 baht (a tenner in UK money or about $17 US) There must be a catch somewhere!

A few "Go Around" landing experiences in the morning were converted to a personal best on the Fly Rod in the afternoon. The secret to my success today and one of the best tips I can give you is "ask the locals"

A regular angler arrived shortly after lunch, set up his fly rod and was hooked into a small Arapaima within minutes of his first cast.

We asked a few questions and advice was given and acted upon immediately.

The tippet length, retrieve and best area to cast was given for me with the Fly Rod and Oz was given a few pointers for a "popper & fly" combo which turned the day around for both of us.

Personal best on fly is now a 35kg Arapaima, caught with a streamer on 15lb tippet using a 6 weight rod floating WF line

In conclusion, the Catch is Amazon fish in Bangkok at a great price with good food - see you there next week!
