Memorable experience. Great host, good fishing. Brown and Rainbow Trout. Lines hardly in the water and we get our first bite. Will be back.

We found this event on Trip Advisor and had a great time. The bonus was catching the fish. The conversation, stories and stunning scenery were just great. A gem of a town and an enjoyable finish to our brief visit.

Thankyou Alan for giving us such a great time. You put on a most enjoyable afternoon for us. The fishing was brilliant and so was the company. Best day out for anyone wanting a genuinely well put together fishing trip.

The fishing experience with Alan, our guide, is great for both beginners, like me, as well as people that have fished before. After we left shore, we immediately sped over to a fishing area in Stevensons, and over there, Alan taught us how to use...More
