Have you ever been wondering if there are suitable rivers to go fly fishing in Southern Thailand by yourself?

This is a report of a do-it yourself fly fishing trip in Southern Thailand without a guide. I found this river by searching on google maps and streetview. Be aware that this film was shot during dry season, which means the river levels are low and visibility is good. Yet, I didn’t expect the water clarity being as good as it was.

I caught only small fish but I suppose there must be rivers with larger mahseer. However, to find them needs much more time than 1 day. If you need to catch a big fish faster – get a guide. Otherwise take a lightweight rod and have fun with the small fish. But be prepared, Mahseer are very strong fighters.
