It was a great fishing in Wanaka. we could easily catch three big salmons by Devy and Jeno's helps. And Jeno's homade muffin and lemonade was very delicious. Jeno and Devy's kindness deserve to compliment.

Great arvo with Dave on his immaculately presented Mc Lay 651 charter launch. He put us right onto the fish and we ended up with a chillybin full of rainbows which we will be smoking today! Thanks again mate. Kerry and Stuart.
