One of my favourite places that we visited in Thailand was Herntai Resort (to see pics scroll down). Great food, dirty cheap and plenty of ambience. The fire timelapse scene (post below) was also shot at Herntai. Here Adam Trina gears up for a day of Mahseer fishing with Kris Keller stringing up in the background.
Despite all apperances we actually did manage to shoot some Mahseer fishing. Above Greg Cunningham and Adam Trina wait for me to roll while having a beer.That seemed to happen a lot? Just after this Kris Keller tried an unsuccessful "Hackle Tackle" on one of the village's rooster's. Keep trying KK, you'll get your feathers sooner or later. My advice? Break out the guide net.
I've posted this photo before but now that I'm at home and have time to photoshit some stuff up here it is. Yup I'm totally MacGrubered in this photo and so is the mini spy cam in the top of hat. Spy cam handywork courtesy of Adam Trina owner and founder of Montana Fly Company. Trina invited me to Thailand under the pretense of filming some Mahseer fishing and then quickly hi-jacked the film project into a Hunter S. Thompson-esque tour of Bangkok's seamer side. The 'Kok as Adam is fond of calling it, sucked us in and held us under. Everything in Bangkok is ILLEGAL (that is anything worth doing there) and so we needed to find a way to get it on film. Look for it in an upcoming short tentatively titled Thai One On: The River Ngao.
