when you book you get an email telling you want bait is working at the moment 14mm nut cracker pop ups are working well in white.
they also give you a list of kit you might want to take.

the only thing I am not sure about is rigs they tell you what hooks to take if you want to tie your own rigs, but I am not sure what they use as it say use size 1 hooks so I guess the pop up acts as a wafter.

3/0 hooks for arry's I think that's with a fish bait.

cant wait to go there 14 months to wait.

I am going for a week at Gillhams and a week in Krabbi

yes... most important take PVA bags and lots of them

You need to double up too otherwise they melt before they hit the bottom.

I got through just under 60 in 3 days.

Thanks goochy. RE: Pop-ups, were you fishing a standard carp style lead arrangement or method feeder?

I went last November and if is the same I would recommend taking

Hooks - None in the shop at time
hooklink material - none in the shop at time
headtorch - if you get a Mekong on before dark you will be fighting it into the dark
selection of small pop ups' - I was catching on yellow 12mm

Apart from that not a lot you really need if I remember right -- oo extra cash for the pellet you do not get in your bait freebies which you will need t purchase a lot of.

Heading to Gillhams for a week in just over a month's time. Feel well prepared, but one question to those that have been, do you have any "must take items"?

I have to agree with it, because anyone can have a lake with some large fish in and just feed them up daily.

For example, i think its Jakob Vagner with the Arapaima record, and thats about 350lb. i would say about half of the fish that are caught in the fishing parks are above that weight.

I will be sure to post some up
Ive given myself 3 days to catch one, should be in with a shout.

I hope you do and I look forward to seeing the pics!

I think the reason Tim Webb could not claim record, as I understand it from the website for his lake, was due to the change in the IGFA Rules I mentioned below - apparently the change was that as of 11th January 2014 the IGFA would no longer accept world record claims made from fishing parks.
