Gillhams Resort, Thailand - 22nd September to 30th September 2010

Scotty, Ashley and me headed off to Gillhams Resort in Krabi, Thailand for a nine day fishing holiday and it was brilliant. The fishing was excellent, food was top notch and we met some brilliant people. Stuart and Sean Gillham were the best hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Stuarts wife, Benz, was lovely as was my guide, Golock, the other guide Joe (Fishcake), Matt the head gardener, Stuarts daughter Becks and his son Jack was very sweet.

We caught loads of fish, topped off by a stunning arapaima of 330lb, caught by Ash. We also caught Amazon redtail catfish to 66lb, siamese carp to 55lb, Asian redtail catfish, silverbarbs, alligator gar, Mekong catfish to 110lb, sorubim catfish and spotted featherbacks and arrawana.
