We stayed with Diane and Barry for two nights in early December. A lovely place to stay, everything one could want. I had a day fishing booked with Barry and at last I could say that I had a successful day on the water. We used both nymph and dry fly, caught on both. Barry is a first class guide, he was spotting fish that I never saw and also incredibly patient, calmly untangling my line for the nth time. This type of fishing is very different to the US and UK and without a good guide one wouldn't stand much of a chance of a fish. The water is very clear and the fish are large and wary.
A really first class stay.
