Fly Fishing In Thailand

What You Need

Thailand's tropical (and high altitude mountain locations) conditions require fishermen to be properly equipped with the necessary accessories and clothing.

Recommended Clothing & Accessories;

Fishing hat – A broad-brimmed hat, and it must be a dull color – this is important as a fish see you head first as you are approaching the river! A wide brim is best to protect you from sunburn, reduce glare by keeping direct sunlight off your Polaroid glasses, also prevents hooks in your ears, head or neck!


Polaroid Sunglasses
– Bring a top-grade pair! Best colors are yellow or amber; these improve contrast on dull days. Dark green ones make it difficult on rainy days to see the fish.

SHIRTS
– A light-weight fishing shirt, fast-drying micro-fiber or light cotton, is best. Dull colors are important! Long sleeves are best against sunburns, and also the fish will not see your light colored arms.

T-SHIRTS or SINGLETS – Light cotton or micro-fleece

PANTS: Either hi-tech polyester outdoor track-pants/trousers, or shorts over polypropylene long-johns. We prefer to wade wet because water temperatures are mild and waders are hot and uncomfortable on long hikes. Choose pants that dry quickly.

Wading Boots – Sturdy wading boots, because the terrain is rugged, and we often cover quite long distances. Wading boots with felt or felt + studs are ideal. We support quality boots to our clients from size 9-13, but if you prefer to bring your own pair you are welcome to do so.

JACKET – A lightweight 100% waterproof jacket - dull colors that you can slip in your backpack in case of unexpected wind/rain. Mountain weather can change rapidly.

Pullover- a fleece lined hooded Pullover is nice to have available in the evening. The temperature can drop fast in December and January high up in the mountains.

SUN-BLOCK SPF30+ - Bring SPF30+ sun-block, water-resistant. The sun here during midday can be very strong.

INSECT REPELLENT – There are very few troublesome insects here. However, at dusk and dawn there are sometimes mosquitoes. A repellent with about 25%+ Deet content is recommended.
