We went rod and line freshwater fishing a a few times during our stays in Thailand:

Fishing on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok

We had little success using rods and light spinning reels even though we were copying the local fishermen on the riverboat jetties.

Fishing at a lake in Chiang Mai

We had little success using rods and light spinning reels even though the locals were catching. We put this down to the fact we were not familiar with the tactics. Locals were using stale jam sandwiches and catching quite large fish!

Salt water fishing in Thailand

We went rod and line sea fishing a a few times during our stays in Thailand:

Fishing off rocks and and shore fishing in Koh Samui, Thailand

We had little success using rods and light spinning reels.

We saw net fishing in Thailand on the Ping River in Northern Thailand
