I have been using Chris Jones as my fishing guide for my annual fishing trip to the NT with my dad and friends since 2006. Chris is second to none. He has the best boat, gear and knowledge of the waterways you are fishing. On top of that he is great company, patient and happy to teach you the tricks... More

The fact that I’ve come back again, and again, and again – need anything else be said? In the past 3 years I’ve done two 3-day run-off safaris with Chris from River n Reef Fishing Charters – on the South Alligator River system as well as countless day trips on the magical Corroboree Billabong. Many of the trips have been... More

Fished a day with Chris on Corroboree Billabong for Saratoga. Seriously professional guide of the highest standard. Gear, vessel and knowledge are highest standard, with plenty of room to fish confidently and safely. Landed a huge amount of barramundi and saratoga using a variety of methods including surface fishing and spinnerbaits. Nothing was too much trouble and Chris ensured that... More

Just came back from a four day guided fishing tour with Chris Jones from River to Reef and it was worth every penny. The boat (6.4 metre plate alloy) was perfectly setup for fishing and despite four anglers (my mates) being on board none of us felt cramped on obstrcuted. We were told that the Barra on the South Alligator... More

Just had a great 5 day fishing experience with a good mate in Kakadu. Chris from River and Reef Fishing Charters was our guide and he literally had barra jumping into the boat. His equipment and presentation was first class which made fishing what it is supposed to be, successful and fun. As Big Arnie said "I'll be back"

Heard barra fishing was good, but this was the best day. Chris, our skipper was so knowlegable and a true territorian. The wildlife was spectacular, even feeding a sea eagle was an incredible experience. Thanks Chris for an awesome day!!

A day's Barramundi fishing on the Corroborree billabong was a great way to spend a day in Darwin. The early pick up was made better in the well appointed Land Cruiser and then off for bacon & egg rolls and a cup of tea at a roadhouse on the way. Chris's knowledge and good humour (even in spite of my... More
