As you can see in ‘About Us’ both Aziz and Anthony have a wealth of experience in the world of fishing.
There are, however, a number of websites proclaiming to be specialists in the Rompin Sails. Chances are, they are little more than middlemen.
Others claim to have been the first, the founders of the Rompin Sails, or the best. We claim non of this. We are good at what we do, we were the pioneers of the Rompin Sailfish in the late mid 90’s (before we established Hook, Line and Sinker) and we still outfish others most of the time.
ROYAL BELUM (Upper Temenggor Dam)
The massive man made impoundment of Temenggor covers around 150 sq km. Developed for the production of hydro power the upper reaches, called ‘Royal Belum’ is a state park, a virgin tropical rainforest covering, some 1,175 sq km surrounding the upper reaches of the dam. The many rivers of the flooded forest boast some fine fishing. The ‘King’ of these waters is the Giant Snakehead (Toman), a powerful and ferocious predator. Other species include the Malayan Mahseer, the Malaysian Boneytongue (Arowana or Kelisa), Hampala Barb (Malaysian Jungle Perch), and the Giant Featherback(Belida).
The virgin tropical rainforest backdrop makes for excellent pictures/video’s, totally at one with nature. A plethora of wildlife abounds in the forest. If you are lucky, sharp eyed and very very quiet there is a variety of wildlife you may encounter. Monkeys, wild pig, elephants, deer and tapir are the most commonly seen mammals. Tigers also inhabit the forest but are seldom, if ever, seen. Numerous bird species from the fish eagle to hornbills, humming birds and jungle fowl (the original chicken) can be spotted regularly.
Accommodation is pretty basic but clean and tidy and boats (18 footers)and guides are provided for fishing.
