Gillhams Fishing Resort - Thailand

Gillhams Fishing Resorts is a family-run business, and both Sean and I are experienced big fish anglers. Benz, who is my partner, is in control of the day-to-day running of the resort, and she is assisted by Noi, Sean's partner. Together with Benz, we traveled Thailand in search of the perfect location for a fishing resort, finally deciding on Krabi province due to its natural beauty and popularity as a family destination, but it took us a further six months to find the perfect location. We purchased our land in 2006, and then began the daunting task of the excavation of a nine-acre lake. This was a frustrating task but, after sorting through various idiots, we finally found a local contractor to supply experienced staff and top quality equipment. Without two local brothers, Den and Deol, this lake would not have been dug. Various engineers and site managers had failed, but I would recommend these two to anyone. While the lake was being dug, we rented some lakes from our good friends the Chow family, and our lake was complete by March 2007. Benz' family we were introduced to Mr. Egg, one of Thailand’s top fish suppliers. Mr. Egg travels the length and breadth of Thailand purchasing specimen sized fish for us. Some days he drives over 700 kilometers chasing rumours of big fish. If the rumour is true he will purchase the fish for us and transports it back to Gillhams Fishing Resorts. Many times poor Egg wastes his time and money chasing false rumours, and he is another man we are indebted to. All our red tail catfish, Mekongs and Chao Phraya catfish come from a fish farm near Bangkok, owned by Thailand’s most respected fish farmer, Mr. Toe. He is without exception regarded as the no. 1 fish breeder in Thailand, and his fish are the most sought after fish in the country. Toe has become a loyal and trusted friend, and his advice and assistance with planning our fish’s environment has been invaluable. Without these people we would have given up our dream but with their help, dedication, generosity and knowledge, the lake is now complete and stocked with some of the biggest fish in the world, ready for our clients to enjoy some of the best freshwater fishing in the world in probably what is one of the most beautiful locations in Asia. We are looking forward to make your dreams come real. Our commitment is to give all our guests the holiday of a lifetime in a beautiful, safe and friendly surrounding. Thank you for reading this introduction. We hope to see you soon. Stuart, Sean, Benz and Noi.
