Post by velboy » Thu Feb 04, 2010 7:06 pm

Hi,

I'm in the market for a new telescopic fisihng rod as mine was smashed today at the Hua Hin Fisihing Lodge. Only a deacathlon cheapo one so not worried.

Great day day awesome fish.

What's a good make of rod here I could get.


Thanks

There's a fishing tackle shop in Chomsin Road in the middle of town and another one with a very good selection in Cha-am next o Crawfords near the bus station.

I would recommend a worm on the end of this. Make sure you wrap the other end of the chain around a stout structure.

Terry's fish are monsters.:wink:
