Spearfishing Thailand Flood 2011

 

The floods have yet to reach downtown Bangkok but the outskirts are starting to get inundated. Courtesy of the flood, many fish are escaping the reservoirs and fish farms and making their way to the capital. As a result, a crap load of people have taken up freshwater spearfishing.
