Most people wouldn't expect much in the way of fish variety in southern Asia, but customers Cip and Jo have just returned from a successful trip there. The boys were in Malaysia where they got their fishing fix and a local fishing park. The boys fished from the pontoons for larger fish like redtail catfish and barramundi, and in small boats in the ponds for the predatory fish like snakehead and bass.

Snakehead and Peacock bass were the order of the day boat fishing the ponds. Both are aggressive predators ready to smash most lures that cross their path. Many Australian lures can be successful on these fish and the use of multi-piece travel rods now makes a trip abroad like this very easy.
