Man vs Monster Nat Geo Stingray show Thailand – 07 02 2014

National Geographic explorer Richard Terry visited the Maeklong River in Thailand in search of Giant freshwater stingray.
With the trip arranged at very short notice and only two or three days at his disposal the stingray fishing trip was quickly organised.

Richard Terry started fishing on the Maeklong River assisted by the Fishsiam team.
The first day saw several aborted takes but unfortunately no stingrays.

The second day saw the National Geographic adventurer fishing slightly upstream.
With the incoming tide rising quickly one of the floats started moving slowly downstream.

On winding down into the Giant freshwater stingray the rod was pulled into its full curve as it took up the weight of the stingray.
Continued pressure saw the Nat Geo explorer starting to win the battle and ever so slowly the stingray was raised from the depths.

With a little assistance from the guides the stingray was brought over the net and quickly transported to the riverside.
Scientists from the veterinary science faculty at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok gave the small male stingray a thorough examination before it was carefully released back to the Maeklong River.

With still a few hours of fishing time left to catch another Giant freshwater stingray the team went about their work again.
A few hours later Richard hooked another Giant freshwater stingray of a similar size but this time a female.
The Giant freshwater stingray was easily overpowered on the heavy duty fishing equipment and was brought to the surface within ten minutes.

After a thorough examination by the onsite scientists the Giant freshwater stingray was released abck into the Maeklong River.
With the days Giant freshwater stingray fishing now over Richard continued his adventure to the Mekong River in Northern Thailand.

Man vs Monster can be seen on National Geographic channel. Make sure that you tune in to watch Richard Terry and his experiences with the Giant freshwater stingray in Thailand with Fishsiam
