Fishing abroard is always exciting! I am from the Netherlands and have fished a lot of places around the world, with and without guides. Where to start is always the big question?! If you go to Thailand, do not think twice: go with Tap!
I have been in Thailand twice, both times with Tap. The first time we went to Srinakarin reservoir, the second time to Kaeng Kra Chang reservoir, both massive reservoirs, in search for the illusive Giant Snakehead. Tap made sure everything was arranged, the transport, boat, food and drinks. The gear you will be using is top end, reels from Abu Garcia, Daiwa and Shimano en top quality rods. He has a lot of lures (if you will do lure fishing) to pick from and he knows what to use on what spot.
Due to the fact that he speaks excellent English (next to Thai) the communication is superb!! He reacts fast on mails and Facebook messages. Next to that, he is a fun guy to hang out with. Why so serious, you are on a holiday! He will make sure your day(s) will be to rememberd. You want to go with a family, no problem, everything is possible. Are you an avid angler, Tap is the guide to go with. He ‘breaths’ fishing and knows what he is talking about and he will do his 200% best to make sure you will catch the fish you want. But as every (avid) angler knows: it’s called fishing, not catching, you still have to work for the fish. And he let’s you enjoy the typical Thai food during the afternoon break, can it get any better?!
Ofcourse, when fishing a pond the change of getting the fish you want is bigger then on a reservoir, but both times I went out with Tap on a reservoir, I caught some amazing fish! First time I had 5 Giant Snakeheads and 1 rare Cobra Snakehead in 2 days. The second time I caught 8 Jungle Perch with one from over 2kg’s, an amazing fish!
I had 4 days in total with Tap and I can say he has become a friend of mine. Our minds are the same, we just love and life fishing! He is a great guy, and he is THE guide I can recommend for fishing in Thailand. Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime, go with Tap!
Cheers, Thijs van der Sanden / www.rozemeijer.com / Netherlands
"I can highly recommend Tap's services. Spent a day with him at Pilot and had a great time. He has a flexible attitude and is as much a native English speaker as Thai so communication is no problem. Great value for money for a 12 + hour day." - Warren from Australia.
"We had a wonderful time fishing the other day with you. You offer a great guide service. We will tell our friends about you. " - Cynthia from Los Angeles, California
I believe fishing is as much about interaction with native people and their ways of life as it is about trophy and sport. In this regard, Bangkok Fishing Guide is outstanding. Tap is keen on introducing to his customers various elements of Thai culture. Furthermore, he really cares about the livelihood of local people who make fishing possible for a foreigner like me.
Such endeavours come together to create an exotic yet strangely familiar and approachable fishing experience. Thank you Tap once again for helping me catch those massive Barramundi and for those exquisite Northern Thai dishes. - Ilsuk from Korea
After realizing Thailand offered the opportunity to fish for Arapaima, I decided I have to book a trip to Thailand to catch this dream fish of mine. Searching on Google came back with many guides and after looking through many sites, I decided to email Tap from Bangkok Fishing Guide. I got a response from Tap within the day and after exchanging some emails, I decided to finalize my trip with Tap. Meeting Tap was a pleasure. He was always on time to pick me up in the morning and was very professional, knowledgeable and spoke great English. Our three day trip was planned personally for me and not only was I able to land my dream fish, I got to catch 11 other species that I have never caught before. The trip taught me not all is what it seems. I planned my trip with an Arapaima as my dream fish but left Thailand dreaming of returning one day to fight another Giant Mekong Catfish. For any English speaking angler looking for a personally designed dream fishing trip in Thailand, I would highly recommend Tap. - Martin from Dallas, Texas
