Synopsis

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 bar-girl. Catch your first double-figure Carp sitting by the banks of a cliff-lined lake near the border of Thailand and Cambodia, or cast a lure from a deserted tributary close to the Bridge over the River Kwai, with only the birds and mosquitoes for company. 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 - the Disneyland of freshwater fishing. 'An informative and long-overdue guide to freshwater fishing in Thailand.' JEAN-FRANCOIS HELIAS, FISHING ADVENTURES THAILAND 'Especially useful as an ebook; the unknown species you catch in Thailand can be targeted and identified right by the water's edge on your mobile phone or ebook reader.' ROB HOGG, ENGLISH COARSE FISHERMAN
 

About Peter Jaggs

See more books from this Author
Peter Jaggs is from Essex in England and has spent the best part of the past twenty five years in Thailand since he was in his early twenties and has visited every province in the country. Peter has always believed that real work is a necessary evil and should only be undertaken when funds are required for the extended bouts of bar-hopping, fishing and hanging out on beaches he much prefers. However, he does enjoy writing about his beloved second home and has had articles, stories and poems published in several newspapers and magazines. Although Peter loves women - especially of the Thai variety - he is not married because he feels that a wife would be as much of a hindrance to his freedom and irresponsible lifestyle as a regular job. Besides this, no female on God's earth could put up with him for any length of time apart from his mother. Peter is currently based between Devon, England and Pattaya City and spends an equal amount of time in each of his two homes with frequent excursions to other favourite venues in Asia. Peter also wrote the first ever book in the English language published on freshwater fishing in Thailand.
