Thailand Wild catching the Snakehead
The proposed itinerary is a truly Wild experience for extreme fishermen, it is a stay on a “sailor” house in Lake Sinakharin that will follow you on your fishing tour, trips with small motorboats led by local captains with the technical and strategic support of expert fishermen to fish the famous Snakehead, a prestigious trophy. All this with the precious supervision of Valerio Morini. Seasonality: The Giant Snakehead is a fish that is fished all year round, but the best time is the months of June, July, and August during the rainy season. However, there are two annual stops: the first between March 15th and May 15th due to excessive temperatures and the second between September 15th and November 15th due to too high water levels. between November 15th and March 15th is the most pleasant season, with temperatures not too high. Accompanying you on-site will be VALERIO MORINI: Valerio is a director and documentary maker of Sky who in the last 10 years has worked almost exclusively to make fishing documentaries around the world. To his credit, he has 6 television formats for a total of over 150 primetime episodes on Sky. He has traveled to 46 countries and fished over 50 different predator species, including the Yellow Cheek and the Muskie. She has lived in Thailand since 2015, speaks and writes Thai, good English, Italian mother tongue. In 2018 he created this project for a truly extreme Giant Snakehead fishing experience in Thailand.
