Default Vietnam, Thailand fly fishing?

I am going to Vietnam and Thailand next feb and I am looking for any info or anyone with experience over there. Where to go, what species come to the fly, who the guides are and how much it will cost.

Thailand is cheap to get to. I found it best to take a package deal that includes a hotel. You do not have to use that room each night. I loved Bangkok. I have set up a travel tips website on things to see and the danger from the scam artists.

Flyfishing is cheap. You can enjoy your self at practically no cost. I surf fished from the beach using saltwater streamers. The most successful were
Clousers Deepwater Minnows and
Lefty's Deceiver Saltwater Flies

If you can rent a boat these two fly patterns also work trolling behind the boat.

In Bangkok city centre the river is full of large Cat fish. Have a look at the photo on the bottom of this page taken in Bangkok near a temple.

Just negotiate with one of the boat owners or find a pier to fish from. Do not go near one of the temples as the Buddhist dont like it. The water is always cloudy because of the run off from the mountains so big streamers worked for me like the
