Amazing everyone caught fish and extremely attentive guide. We were mainly novices but our guide taught us well. Would thoroughly recommend

What a shame. The reviews read so well but our experience was not the same. We didn't catch many fish but that wasn't the issue. Harry spent most of the time on the phone, spent very little time explaining what to do to our children and at no point did we realise we would be sharing a line all the... More

Excellent fishing trip. Friendly and helpful skipper who adapted his usual mark to suit us. Great value for money. Will definitely be using again.

We went for a 1 hour mackerel trip with a family group of 10. Harry is great company- he obviously loves being out on the sea with punters and it's infectious. Despite being very early in the season we landed two mackerel. It would have been a worthwhile trip even if we hadn't as it is grand to see the... More

Harry Mays fishing is excellent, in fact it was so good we booked another one 2 days later. Deep Sea fishing 8.30 till 11.30. 1st trip was with Harry, showed us what to do and explained about the shoreline and the wrecks we were fishing on. 2nd trip was with Matt, again great fun, even got to steer the boat....

Fantastic! Although we caught only one herring on a mackerel line, we had a thoroughly enjoyable and informative trip. We were a party of 4 adults and 5 children and we would definitly do it again. Thank you Harry!

We have been taking our boys to Lyme for 15 years now, either at half term or sometimes in the Summer. They still want to go out on a mackerel trip with Harry every time - its now seen as an important tradition. We have endless pictures captured over the years with ropes of fish (and the ocassional empty string!).... More

We travelled to Lyme Regis from our home in Bermuda to see where Bermuda's story started and what a truly spectacular visit we had. There could be no better ambassador for the town than Harry! Far more than a fishing trip - which in and of itself was a treat and thoroughly enjoyed by Dads and boys alike - Harry... More

Well Cattridge, what can I say?! That was some review! Thank you very much indeed, it was a delight to receive. If you would like to chat to someone about Lyme Regis and maybe me and the boat have a little wander to the Docksiders Bar and ask for Antony, one of the owners. He has a brother who lives... More

We decided to take a boat trip with Harry judging October half term. When we arrived Harry forewarned us we would literally have to bump into a mackeral to catch one due to storm churning up the sea the day before. He was right on that count but as a family of four we still enjoyed the boat trip out... More

Hi Jayne Thank you very much for that, there just have to be times when we can't catch your supper but luckily those times are few and far between. Your trip was one of the very few we did over half term, the weather didn't improve and the sea remained really stirred up. If you find yourself in Lyme again... More
