Thailand, Karabi

This fantastic lake situated close to Krabi has been designed and is managed by the well known and respected British angler, Stuart Gillham and his son Sean. This 9 acre lake is set amongst landscaped gardens with an awesome background view of jungle covered limestone mountains. This lake is now being correctly considered as the best big fish venue in Thailand. Years of research went into this lake before it was created, and the design of the lake including deep channels, plateaus, shallow areas and also non–fishing areas has made the perfect habitat for the many different native species, and indigenous fish that are now thriving in the lake. Accommodation at the lake is in resort standard bungalows with everything you would expect, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, hot water, T.V. and mini bar. For anglers and families staying in the bungalows, a luxury 7 x 15 meter swimming pool in private gardens is available.
