Mark the navy chief is back fishing with us a second time in as many months. Always cheerful and fun to fish with, Mark added more sailfish and other catches to his species list. [Read more…] about Early June in Rompin With Mark Banns
Jake from Houston Texas is on a business trip in the region and he manages to snatch a day away from work for some fishing.
Having never caught a billfish before, he is excited by the prospect of having one at the end of his line.
SIGNS OF THE START OF THE PEAK SEASON
Uploaded a post of a recent trip to catch some saltwater fish with friends from Perth, Alan and Richard.
Check out the post here in Fly fishing Asia.
Although some anglers may shrug at the idea of fishing in stocked ponds, these stocked ponds are good to have for many reasons.
Some of which are:
- A quick fix for that fishing itch
- A good place to hangout with some friends for a couple of hours
- For convenient gear testing
- For people who are just too busy to go away for a long stretch
- A place to introduce fishing to people otherwise will never go fishing in the wild
- and more!
Very proud to see 15 of our photos selected and used in the latest edition of the Tourism Malaysia Sport Fishing brochure.
One is wrongly labelled in the printed copy, but what the heck. Still proud as hell.
I’m also very happy to see some of our clients with their catches while fishing with us.
Thanks for the outstanding time, excellent memories for life.
Mark Banns – BC, Canada, May 2017
Mark Banns is a Chief Petty Officer aboard a navy destroyer. A huge one I must say! Since his ship will be making a stop in Malaysia, Mark got in touch with us to set up a fishing trip.
It is early May and fishing is not hot, especially for sailfish – fingers crossed.
Mark is a really fun guy and we had a blast during the trip.
Check out the video below of Mark’s first of two trips in Kuala Rompin.
Trip update video from end of May. Trip duration: 6 days
We recently hosted four lovely guests aboard the Sea Urchin for a 6 days live aboard fishing trip in Kuala Rompin. The month of May is not usually the most productive when it comes to fishing here, thankfully however, we had a good trip.
