New Bungsamran Fishing Resort Experience
With the new venue covering 128,000 square meters, it is no surprise that many anglers have been taken by the new Bungsamran fishing resort. The previous one was hugely popular, but the improved layout and focus on great quality fishing, not to mention the considerable accommodation options, makes this a fantastic option.
We also think the best way to enjoy the Bungsamran fishing resort is with a great guide, and we would like to introduce you to Mr Krit, a fishing pro.
Get to know our pro, Mr Krit
When it comes to fishing, it is always worthwhile to learn from the best and highly experienced anglers. We think you’ll love Chaina Thaipatta, or our pro, Mr Krit as he is better known as.
It was an early start for Chaina, who first went fishing at just five years old. His father and uncles would take him with them, and as you would expect, the hobby became an all-consuming passion. Even now as Chaina closes in on 30 years, he is as excited and as passionate about fishing as he has ever been.
So that’s around 35 years’ experience of fishing, more than 8 years as a professional guide, and he has been involved with fishing matches, including commenting, for more than 20 years.
Chaina has fished all over Thailand, and if there is a commercial fishery, lake or dam in the country, it’s very likely he has fished there.
While Chaina has a passion for all sorts of fish, he loves catching Mekong catfish and Giant Siamese carp.
He is delighted to say his favourite fishing resort in Thailand is the new Bungsamran, and he has fished both the old and new Bungsamran on many occasions.
The largest fish that Mr Krit has caught is a 205kg Mekong, at the new Bungsamran resort. It won’t be a surprise to learn that one of the things he loves doing the most is helping people to land a massive fish.
Chaina is more than happy to travel and guide at venues across Thailand, and given he has caught over 90 different fish species in his time, whatever you want to catch, he will help you out.
We think Mr Krit is a well-liked character, and a familiar face and name on the Thai fishing scene. If you are keen to enjoy a great day of fishing, packed full of fun, you will do so with him.
