I picked up a Garmin Drive 51 at B2S in Central Plaza. Used it on a trip to north Thailand and it worked okay. You can register the unit online and update it periodically.

Re: professional reel cleaning/repair

I've used this shop for rod and reel repairs / cleaning. The sign above the awning just says ตกปลา (tok bpla) = fishing. They have some repair parts but it may be hit and miss if you need replacements. If you cross the railroad tracks on Pho Si/Nittayo Rd. headed towards Makro/Big C, turn right at t...

Re: Bottle clam juice..

Just the shells DuiDui to make the stock.

"Use the shrimp shells and heads if you have them. Throw in some onions, celery, garlic, fennel if you have it, and peppercorns while making the stock. Simmer for about 45 minutes and strain."
