| "On Jean-Francois Helias' 1st place in the Male Freshwater category and 2nd place in the Captains/Guides category of the 2012 IGFA Top 10:
Jean-Francois Helias has recently been announced the top male freshwater fisherman for 2012 as announced by the IGFA. He also finished 2nd for top captain/guide category for 2012. Francois has more achievements than I can list here such as the IGFA 2008 liftetime achievement award for outstanding contributions to sport fishing. Francois has literally placed Thailand on the fishing map by himself. Having fished with Francois twice the past few years, I can highly recommend his services. He knows the waters of Thailand better than anyone alive and has a great personality to boost! He is a blast to hang around with and can show you all the sites in Bangkok! Thailand has a wide variety of monster species to choose from and Francois can put together a package which fullfills your dreams.
Congratulations Francois from all your friends in Chicago!
