I couldn't wait to get fishing and like everyone who comes here I was hoping to catch some fish that I have been dreaming about catching. I fished for 2 half days and...

We visited this resort at the end of out holiday. I only had 1 day of fishing which is not much but should be enough to catch something. Unfortunately i didn't catch anything but saw some huge fish being caught. The decor is wonderful. Lots of tropical plants and animals. One thing was odd this was the only place in...

I was here some years ago and had a great time with constant support from the Thai guide.This time the guides were English and much less 'hands on': whilst there used to be ¬10 'swims' there are now 25 'swims' but there are only <5 guides and they are therefore much less available to individual anglers. The resort however was...

Gillhams, Owner at Gillhams Fishing Resorts, responded to this review

We are somewhat surprised by Mick C’s comments and presume he has confused us with another fishery he has visited recently. We have made the lake bigger since his last visit, this was only to give anglers more room and not to increase the amount of anglers on the lake, we have always sold a maximum of 16 fishing places...

The place is undergoing another expansion with the addition of a beautifully designed day spa which commands an elevated postion at the end of the lake . Two Salas or private balconies are under construction with aim to supply a romantic setting for a...

Great place well maintain. Had a good time here. If you opt to do a full day fishing you may be missing out some of the giant catches like I did! The fishing capacity fills out quick (which happened when we went) therefore plan your fishing days wisely. Heard some good stories on the size and species people catch will...
