“My first visit to bung sam ran.”
Reviewed February 1, 2007

I could not believe the size of the fish at bung sam ran,i have never in my life experienced a more harder fighting fish than those i caught during my visit. Any trip to bangkok must include a trip here if you like fishing. The fish in the photograph is a small one! The guy on the left is Mr Khun Tee the fishing guide, i would advise anyone to hire the fishing tackle at the lake,i have seen fishing rods shatter and reels disintergrate with these huge fish. Mr Khun Tee can be contacted at the fishing lake. Tight lines......billyboy.

“Bungsam Lan with Siam Fishing Tours”
Reviewed July 24, 2006

Bung Sam Lan Lake is quite possibly the most unique fishery on the planet. This amazing fishing venue, currently holding 10 IGFA world records, is tucked away down a very inconspicuous and sleepy soi (side street), away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok life. When you first role up to the entrance of this fishing paradise you could be forgiven for wondering whether you have found the right place. But as you walk through the covered walkway entrance, collect your bait, and wonder out onto the decked walkways that follow the perimeter of the lake, you are presented with a Shangri-La type vision. Although hard to describe Bung Sam Lan as "pretty" it has a rustic quaintness that will grow on you as the day passes. The first thing that many anglers notice as they look across the lake, is the heaving, boiling surface. Everywhere you look fish are topping, and upon closer inspection, these are not just ordinary fish....some seem as big as Dolphins! Some are as big as Dolphins! This immediately sets your heart racing, and its hard to contain your excitement as you make your way around the lake to your swim. Strolling briskly now around to your fishing spot, a bungalow on stilts, your eyes will be scanning for other anglers to see if they are getting any action. First you see one, seems to be doing battle with a big fish, and then as you pan round the waters edge you see another and another all playing big fish. By now most anglers are asking themselves "Is this place for real?" The atmosphere is then added to by an almighty crash as a 200LB Arapaima pounces on its prey. By the time you reach your bungalow, you will be shaking with anticipation!

All around this lake, you will hear the warm laughter and conversation of Thai anglers, content in their day as they and their friends catch fish after fish after fish. Sitting around on their pontoons in large groups sharing food, beer and smiles.

Your guide will have your rods set up in a jiffy, he casts your first bait of the day..............to discover what happens next, you really have to be here!

With Siam Fishing Tours, our day was relaxed from the start because our accommodation was just minutes away from the lake, no forced early starts (The fish feed day and night), No troublesome journeys thru Bangkok traffic....just a short stroll with your guide, and you are fishing!
