13th October 2016 R.I.P. His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Today brings such devastating and distressing news for Thailand and all Thai people. His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej has sadly passed away after a 70 year reign.

Well he can be forgiven for losing count – anyway – above are some photos……..Well done Dominic.
Early this week, Jon and Collette joined us for a few hours of fishing on our bottom pond. Jon was targetting Arapaima, so he was particularly miffed when only after about 90 seconds (On the first cast), Collette delivered the goods……………. But, Jon made up for it with several other good specimens including this fine Asian Redtail Catfish. Nice having you here folks.
Noel Rinkenbach checked into the Lodge late Sunday afternoon 25/09. On Sunday evening, Noel fished the bottom pond and had 3 Arapaima, one Alligator Gar and a Pacu, within the first hour and a half. Another Arapaima, 6 more Pacu and a Suwai later, he went to his bungalow 11.00pm. The Next day (Monday 26/09) he had a further 16 fish consisting of 3 Suwai, 7 Siamese Carp between 4-20 Kg and 6 Amazon Red Tail – totalling 29 fish during his visit, which equals approx one every 30 minutes.
He has kindly sent the above photos of his exploits.
Nicely done Noel.
25/09/16 The weekend fnishes here Part 3… Yesterday (Saturday 24/09/16) was a bit of a washout, but as usual the Lodge made up for it in spades today. With a busy day on both ponds, there were Arapaima, Giant Siamese Carp, Krahay Thong Barb, Pacu and Suwai. There was a beautiful Asian Redtail Catfish from the bottom pond that I hope to receive a photo of very soon. Meanwhile Nicolas was fishing the top pond and had the fish of the day – this stunning Julien;s Prize Carp. Well done Nicolas.
23/09/16 The Weekend starts here – Part 1. Steve has fished at the Lodge many times before. Today saw his third visit during this current holiday in Hua Hin. He has managed to catch most of our species on previous visits and today was no exception, with Asian Redtail, Arapaima, Pacu and Giant Siamese Carp amongst others. During his last visit he managed a couple of Alligator Gar, a species that had eluded him before. Today he caught another – smaller than previous, but nevertheless a nice specimen. Thanks for your patronage Steve.
26/09/16 – got this nice review from Steve – Always a pleasure, a must visit fun for all young and old, food is always awesome and you can even get a ice cold beer, Terry and the team look after everyone, looking forward to my next visit, thanks Steve.
23/09/16 The Weekend starts here – Part 2 Khun Cob, a first time visitor to the Lodge had a splendid day on the top pond, with Giant Siamese Carp, Suwai Catfish, and Rohu amongst others. But – his best catch of the day was this 22.5Kg Giant Mekong Catfish. Well done sir.
Paddy & Sara dropped by last week and spent most of the day just relaxing by our ponds and chilling out. They decided to return again a few days later ( 28/08/16), this time to do some fishing. They kindly sent these photos of their second visit. Thanks folks – much appreciated.
The variety that you can catch at the Lodge in one visit, was demonstrated by Steven Tiddy when he visited us again on 27/08/16, and as usual had a good day. Here’s 4 photos of some of his catch, which included a good Amazon Redtail Catfish plus an Asian Redtail Catfish (Amongst many others). Thanks for sharing Steven
Why is it that it is nearly always the ladies that seem to catch our Asian Redtail Catfish? Gavin Fifield, a regular customer of ours, has sent this charming photo of his boss (I mean Wife), Khun Goong, with one of these beasts. Incidentally, Goong always outfishes the old man when they visit…………….!!
05/08/16 – These nice young ladies landed this brace of a Giant Siamese Carp & a Giant Mekong Catfish, with their last cast of the day, from our top pond. Both fish at around 18-19 Kg. Well done ladies.
We get many many customers who wish to catch an Arapaima. But not many at 6 years of age. Well done young Franco………….
On Sunday 17th, The Dunbar clan joined us on our day package. They had a great day with us which included amongst others, Black Minnow Shark Carp, Amazon Redtail, Suwai Catfish, Giant Siamese Carp, Pacu and Arapaima.

Rainer visited us on a Day Package. He caught, a Pacu and an Arapaima amongst others. But the special catch of the day was this rarely seen Wallagu Attu. Just one of the many varieties to be found at the Lodge. Well done sir.
Sam & Lauren with a simultaneous brace…….
A total of at least 44 fish varieties across both ponds ranging from tiddlers up to 70 Kg. OK – our fish are NOT all monsters – however, they are big enough to test the casual angler and interesting enough for those who like something different..
Our fishing prices are STILL not monstrous either.

**WHAT IS CATCH & RELEASE FISHING?
Catch and release fishing is a practice within recreational fishing, intended as a technique of conservation. After capture, the fish are unhooked and returned to the water before experiencing serious exhaustion or injury. Using barbless hooks, it is often possible to release the fish without removing it from the water (a slack line is frequently sufficient).
Recreational Fishing (Catch & release) is one of the most popular pastimes in the World. More than 100 million Americans & Europeans regularly go fishing. Fisheries are responsible for maintaining healthy and productive fish populations.
What is good fishing to one person, may not be good fishing to another. Some anglers don’t care what they catch as long as they catch something. Other anglers are only interested in certain species of fish. Some want to catch lots of fish while others want big fish. Still others don’t care if they catch anything as long as they get to relax in the beautiful outdoors. At Hua Hin Fishing Lodge we try and accommodate all of these needs.
Hua Hin Fishing Lodge proudly holds at least 7 (Seven) species of fish that are currently listed on the ‘Endangered’ or Critically Endangered’ species list of WWF.
So – before you decide on a freshwater fishing experience in Hua Hin ………..
CHECK ALL THE REST and then COME TO THE BEST
