One of the best days I have ever experienced.... Tim our tour guide was fantastic with his knowledge of the area. Truly professional, safety always a priority.... The experience of catching a Barra out in the wild with crocs everywhere is not to be missed.......More

A great experience. Didn't catch much, the three of us only managed 3 between us, but one was a whopper of a barra. No probs, the run off was not what it should have been, but a terrific day out. Highly recommended.

Really please you guys had a great day even with out catching the million Dollar Barra. It is unfortunate the season hasnt been favourable for our usually very vibrant fishing. The off shoot is the wetlands and floodplains are amazing.
