Every year at the Central Bagna department store all the major fishing equipment distributors of the country under the Thailand Fishing Tackle and Manufacturer Association (TFTMA) meet up to create easily one of the most epic shopping event for all fishermen within the country.

This year’s event will be from April 29th to May 1st and will be available during the mall’s

hours (Fri 10:30am-10pm, Sat 10am-10pm and Sun 10am-9:30pm).

Product demonstrations, new product release, sexy show girls, MCs and ridiculous discounts of up to 80% on products are some of the main attractions you will get to see there. It’s that time of the year when distributors come out to show off their top of the line gear including, reels, rods, boats, lures and all sorts of other fishing things.

On top of that, it is also a great way to meet and greet fellow fishermen from the community. Many times, a fisherman would run into an online buddy for the first time at a TFTMA event.

I’ve personally withdrawn a large sum of cash for my visit tomorrow. It’s time’s like these where the saying “work to fish, fish to live” really echoes in my head!

Perhaps I’ll see you there!
