We offer the perfect mix of Malaysian Fishing/Angling adventure, training and learning to make this the fishing holiday of your life...
Hook, Line and Sinker was established in 1998 as a result of a fishing friendship between two well known Malaysian Anglers, Aziz Daud and Anthony Sullivan. Both Aziz and Anthony, who accompany virtually all groups personally, have a great wealth of knowledge on fishing in Malaysia. They have played host to a large number of angling journalists and film crews from around the world and many thousands of overseas anglers.
With almost 50 years of angling experience under his belt Aziz is an accomplished angler. He was the Malaysian Representative for the IGFA for over 30 years and a founder/life member of the Malaysian Angling Association. His fishing travels have taken him to Australia(where he was based for 7 years with Tourism Malaysia), Russia, Indonesia, Thailand, Maldives and extensively throughout Malaysia.
Anthony, an angling writer and former columnist and broadcaster has over 50 years of angling experience. He is an IGFA member and former secretary and committee member of the Malaysian Angling Association. He has fished both freshwater and saltwater in mainland Europe, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and also Australia, Maldives, Indonesia and of course, Malaysia.

Both years proved yet again the sustainability of the Rompin Sailfish with both years providing excellent fishing...
Back in Denmark we have nothing but fantastic memories. We would like to thank you very much for your professional service, the perfect fishing trip and your great company. As you promised, we all got new personal records.
I only fish freshwater and want to catch a record Toman. the world record is from Malaysia. I have fished 3 different waters in the past 3 years, caught plenty of snakeheads. Maybe next year I get a record. Great fishing and excellent food.
Popping, lure casting and fly fishing for sailfish in Kuala Rompin is best. Much excitement. Many fish. As soon as I finished my trip, I booked again for 2009.

I fished the Kuala Rompin sails in 2007 with my son and it was a hoot. In 2008 I went again, I brought 2 other groups. Can you go anywhere else and get double figures each and everyday? I doubt it!

Each and everytime I visit Kuala Rompin to fish the sails I'm just awed by this world class destination. Anthony, Aziz and their crew are top class.
I came to Malaysia to catch sailfish on fly. I have been 4 times now and have taken sails on fly. It is hard work on fly but very rewarding. Anthony just knows how to get them up. 2009 was again so good. I will bring more groups in 2010.

Malaysia, truly Asia, can be seen in its cultures, traditions, religions, languages, architecture and its polyglot population.
Harmony is a key word when looking at Malaysia. Mosques, Temples and Churches can be found in the same vicinity and the nations public holidays reflect the multiplicity of its population.
