Came here for 4 hours last Friday with my partner. Managed to catch about 5 gigantic fish each. It was my first time fishing and now I am hooked (excuse the pun). We will be back next year .

Visited Hook a Barra twice on our holiday and it was very enjoyable. Got a nice 82cm fish on fly and then the kids did well in a different pond on soft plastics. Staff are helpful and generous in their timing.
