Trip Ke Ulu Baram,Sarawak.
« on: January 15, 2013, 10:24:01 PM »
This is for Serious Angler Only who looking for The Ultimate prize in Upriver Fishing.

Background:
Following the October issue of Sirip Magazine, it has been talks among anglers that there are
still places left where we can actually fish for Kelah (Malaysian Mahseer) by casting! It is sad
to know that here in Peninsular Malaysia this fish is considered immune to lures resulting our
anglers spending huge sum of money to fish it abroad. Much to my concern, back in Sarawak,
 there are lots of undiscovered great fishing spot which recently I came to know it myself.

The Spot:
Located deep inland of the Borneo, Long Silat is an 8 hours drive via logging route away from Miri.
 It is one of many rivers that feed the mighty Batang Baram. Based on coordinates taken on my first trip
there, it is close to the Sarawak-Kalimantan border .

How to Get There and Cost:
Direct flight to Miri is available from KLIA. From Miri, I will arrange the transport to Long Silat. The cost is as below;
i.   Air Tickets                    =   Subjected to airlines and date.
ii.   4x4 vehicle (4-5 passengers)      =   RM1500/vehicle  (Miri-Long Silat-Miri)   
iii.   Accommodation                  =   RM 80/day  (homestay+meals)
iv.   Fishing Boat + Boatman              =   RM150+RM50/day (including the fuel)


For a 4 pax trip,we will need:
-   4x4 vehicles                 =   RM1500
-   (2x boats + boatmen) x 2days   =   RM800
-   Homestay                         =   RM320         

=> 1 Person approx: RM655 (Not Including the Return Air Tickets)


I am looking for 4 person only for this Maiden trip.I can assure you this is a trip of a lifetime
that ressemble the "Atuk Ong" and "Petualang Sg.Rejang" that was published in the Sirip Magazine.
Please feel free to contact me for further discussion or enquiries..0135605540-Mike

themikebayat,

Good to see that finally someone came out with this idea of having a fishing trip at upper river Baram. It will not be easy to coordinate the trip, supplies & not to mention unpredictable weather.

Looking at the location of this Long Silat, your expedition may need to spend at least a week stay at upper river Baram.

I will look forward for your updates on this trip. Surely I'm interested to go but I sadly I can't commit. I can forward this to my colleagues & see how it goes.

Thanks
Martin

Hi Mike,

When do you plan to have this trip? I am keen to join but it all will depend on the date chosen. Do provide more updates if you really want to pursue this. We can also talk offline if you like.


Cheers  :) :)

It took me almost a year to survey all the possibility of this trip..finally i can finalize it all and came out with a package . I admit it that its not simple at all , considering the remoteness of the place,the norms of the local and to meet anglers expectation. But after all the trouble it takes, simple as it seem its just RM655 per person.Where can we get that kind of price to fight a Kelah using lures?  ;D ;D ;D

Actually, I'm doubtful with the respond to this kind of trip. Its never been done before.But, based on the good and positive respond, we can actually go there as soon as March. The exact date better be discuss later.Well,its just a team of four.. :P :P If you're in that mean we need 2 more guys. ;D ;D ;D I'm OKAY with whatever date chosen. I can arrange it..  ;D ;D

Here's the suggested trip schedule but it's subjected to change due to weather river condition.We have too much river system to explore where here its just Belukun and Long Silat only.So better apply at least 4 days of leave.. ;D ;D ;D

1st Day:
Approx   1100   :   All members are expected to arrive @ Miri Airport. (Earlier the better)
   1200   :   @ Beluru Town shopping for essential necessity.
   1300   :   Depart to Long Silat
   2000   :   Arrived @ Long Silat
-Long Silat is a Kenyah Ethnic village made of Several Long Houses. The team will stay @ my Father in law’s house. Only can be reached by land via logging roads, this settlement is lack of high tech facilities but basic necessity such as electrics and water supply were there. All we need is reasonable amount of food supplies and fuel for the generator.
2nd Day:
   0700   :   Depart to Belukun.
-Belukun is one of rivers that feed the Ulu Batang Baram in the inland of Miri Dictrist. It’s the livestock area of the people of Long Silat, Long Jeeh and Long Selawan. The people of these 3 villages only harvest the “gift of Belukun” only once annually for their celebration days which is Christmas.
-The river is safeguarded from any outside fishing activity since it’s the main stock fish area for the community.
   1200   :   Reach the upriver, lunch and start drifting back; Fishing (casting).
   1800   :   Back @ Long Silat.
   2000   :   Hunting/bottom fishing for “teneken” (catfish).
   0100   :   Back@ Long Silat.
3rd Day:
   0600   :   Depart to Ulu Silat.
-Long Silat is the river where the settlement located. It’s a huge river with lots of white water rapids potential of housing big “jembala” (Malaysian Mahseer) .The River also occupied by several ethnics upstream including the Penans. So it’s going to be a longer ride to the upstream pass the settlements for better fishing ground.
   1300   :   Reach the upriver, lunch and start drifting back; Fishing (casting).
   1900   :   Arrived @ Long Silat.


4th Day:
   0800   :   Departed to Miri.
   1600   :   Reach Miri. Mission completed.

Date tak boleh nak set terus..saya lebih prefer berbincang tentang date supaya kita boleh dapat tiket lebih murah ke Miri.Cuti pun boleh diselaraskan.
Set memadai la joran 8-12lbs,main line 20-30lbs,leader 30lbs.Gewang2 replika ikan dan sesudu..set biasa pancingan sungai pergunungan. ;) ;)
