The Asian Redtail is really only seen by anglers in commerical fisheries, although it is abundant in the wild too, it tends to stay in fairly inexcessable locations. The Asian Redtail, when in good health like the one pictured here, has very attarctive colouration with Salmon Pinks and crimsons running thru tails and fins, a creamy underbelly, and a gun metal grey across it's back.

The Asian Redtail is present in nearly all of Thaialnd's commercial fisheries. However it doesn't really seem to flourish in small lakes this is due to the fact that in it's native, and wild environments it has migratory behaviour patterns, moving out of very large bodies of water and into rivers for spawning. The biggest specimens are to be found in the dams of Thailand, but again catches on rod on line are rare, although commerical net fishermen often catch good size specimens in excess of 40kgs.
