Gillhams Resort, Thailand September 2011

Me and Scotty headed to Thailand for nearly three weeks and we were staying at the wonderful Gillhams fishing resort for most of it. The place really is heaven and you are looked after so well by Stuart, Sean and Becs along with the guides Scott, Lee and the lovely Golock. We fished for nine days and we caught 95 fish of 15 species (Scott had 64 fish to my 31). We had Arapaima to 160lb, Siamese Carp to 55lb, Amazon Redtails to 40lb among loads of other weird and wonderful species.

hey Jamie, I enjoy your blog - how much did the holiday cost excluding spending money, and how much did you spend during the three weeks?

Hi mate, glad you enjoy the blog, the holiday cost us around £1200 and the flights were around £700 and on top of that I spent around £700 during the three weeks, well worth it though. Check out the Gillhams website for more info.
