Fishing Khao Lak's Comment:
The largest freshwater species in the world,
that will test any angler and their equipment to the limit.
A fish guilty of destroying more rods, reels, (and anglers)
than any other species in the world!
We can offer you a very realistic chance of breaking the magical 100lb barrier
with one of these incredible fish!
