A couple of hours scenic drive away from Phuket lies Cheow lan lake which was created in 1982 by damning the Sok river and creating the most stunning of all Thailand’s reservoirs.

Great success for Australian angler Steven Raleigh at Mae Ngat Dam! Steven visited Chiang mai for a full day Giant snakehead fishing session.
