Had a great time and learned a bucket load from Bo, John and Anthony. They were great at breaking trout fly fishing down into a simple, well structured 2 day course. Highly recommended

From a drift boat you get a full experience the unique and varied fishing that the Goulburn has to offer. These guys will put you onto fish!

Hi Petter, We love fishing from the drift boat just as much. And guiding is the next best thing to fishing so it’s a win:win. Hope to see you (and maybe your dad) in the boat again soon. Thanks for the review.
