Reviews

  • Very Informative Fishing Trip

    I took my husband here for his birthday. (surprise) He is an angler, I am not. I would say that we both loved, instructors were wonderful and were able to balance my husbands ability with my inability. I would recommend it to anyone. The professionalism was great and we both learned a ton at our own level.

    Excellent Staff

    Great lesson and absolutely lovely staff, we had a very good helpful blonde young lady helping us, she was very polite and really made our day!

    Had a lovely time! Hope to be back for summer visits as the scenery was so tranquil.
