Rod & line fishing on the riverside

Post by IraHayes » Fri Jun 13, 2014 8:54 am

Some questions regarding fishing with a rod and line on the river side:-

1. Local laws (yeah yeah... I can guess the answer but asking anyway to confirm)

2. Good retailer for tackle etc.

3. Bait

4. Where to fish, good/safe spots. Daytime or evening best.

5. Can you eat the fish? Would you eat the fish?

Fishing the rivers of Phnom Penh could land you an unusual catch. The missing persons unit will no doubt appreciate your assistance. :thumb:
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

I get all my gear from Soknaphi who runs world fishing at # 220 street 150. He is very knowledgable and can give lots of advice on bait and etc. You need to have a passable knowledge of Khmer though or take along a khmer friend to help. He also has a lot of second hand tackle. There are plenty of other options eg in Sorya Shopping Mall and on Monivong near Central Market but I am not sure of exact locations.

Heres soknaphi's details and add
