TopCats Newsletter October 2009
I hear you all asking is Koh Samui going to get any rain this year? Well we have had fantastic weather over the last few days with only occasional showers.

The Resort
This month we have built new car and motorbike parking facilities. Built to cover your mode of transport to keep the sun and rain at bay.

The surrounding walls to the lake have been reinforced and repaired where required, it keeps security high for all our visitors.

We have installed a generator for the power supply to all the boats and oxygen supply to the lake should this be required in the raining season.

This makes your stay that little more comfortable as there is nothing worse than waiting for the electric to come back on for a shower or hot tea or coffee. The generator will run all our boats and lighting around the lake etc.

The Fishing
Let’s talk about the fishing as that’s what most of you want to know about. We have had some nice fish out of the lake and there are plenty of photo's filling up the walls in the bar now.

Caroline, Stephen, Chris, John & Yvonne:
We had Caroline and Stephen over for week fishing with Chris and John and his wife Yvonne for a 60th birthday surprise treat. They are all British but live in Muscat Oman Where they live there is no fishing.

They had a fantastic week with many catches and they were keeping a record of all the weights and the 9 species that they caught, which totaled in weight at over 1000 kilo for each of them. As you can see from all the pictures, a great effort. Thanks for sending us your photos. We hope to see them all back in the not too distant future as John wants the Niger Catfish.

Garry and Donna:
Garry and Donna visited for three nights and caught Redtails, Mekongs, Ariparmas and Carp. We wish them all the best in their travels around Asia.
