Interesting stuff. Looks like they have taken over from Kenya which was one of the biggest producers (for quality poducts) a few years back.

Chiang Mai is home to one of Umpqua's manufacturing locations. I recently obtained a pike fly done in Kenya; perhaps because the Kenyans have been at it longer, I think the quality is still better than the Thai output.
