Perfect Trip
Aug 2018 • Family
Our trip was perfectly balanced between sight seeing and fishing. Gary was easily able to accommodate our needs and in particular my son Harry. the drive back to shore was the highlight taking the tiller and doing a donut !!!

Made our holiday and anyone can do it any age
Jun 2018 • Family
Recently spent the week in Appledore on holiday with extended family. Booked a half day (part sight-seeing/part fishing trip) with Gary. Total seven of us including my 86 year old mother who absolutely loved it. Anyone can do this and its a wonderful shared family experience. Gary looked after us providing all the bad jokes and the entertainment. Gary is very knowledgeable about the area and is also a local hero as he is a member of the Appledore lifeboat crew (ergo - you know you are in safe hands). Gary also did all the dirty work on the fishing but it was 'ME' that caught the 'smoothhound'. Thanks for a great day Gary. All the family would recommend you to anyone, any age, whether they have fished before or not. Great Value, Great Fun. We will be back.

the newbie shows us all how to catch
Aug 2016 • Family
After Sue our host sent me Gary's details I was quickly impressed with this guy and what he is about. Total professional in all about him. RNLI man and so much trusted in what he says and does.
The 2 hour or so session was never enough for me but despite that we had a superb time. Young lad and Dad and another gent joined me on the boat. The 7yr old struck first and with the largest of his 5 bass catch all schoolies which was a shame his dad caught a minnow hehe.4 bass for me but again all schoolies but great sport.
Cheers Gary you did us proud and the ending was just great for the young lad you are a lovely MAN he was made up.... thanks again Ian the wine man

Cracking couple of days fishing with Gary - couldn't recommend more highly!
Jul 2015 • Friends
Myself and a friend had two half-day sessions with Gary as a 40th birthday treat - four hours fishing for bass from his boat in the estuary near the bar and a lovely morning spent lure fishing from the Westward Ho/Estuary beach on an incoming tide.

Gary provided all the fishing kit, bags of local knowledge and an unending supply of hilarious anecdotes. We were even treated to a delivery of bacon sandwiches and a hot flask of tea whilst fishing from the beach.

That evening had the excitement of seeing the off-shore lifeboat doing some very tricky manoeuvring - holding position for a couple of hours just off the Westward Ho! rocks in a decent swell whilst providing assistance to some kayakers in distress.
As Gary was the skipper on the lifeboat that evening he was able to fill us in on the operation the next morning - the volunteers for the RNLI do an incredible job.

I won't pretend we caught many fish, but it didn't matter in the slightest - we had a great time, learned a lot about local marks and the best fishing techniques which means I can take my kids fishing next time we're down in North Devon. We'll definitely pop in to see Gary too!

Husband,myself and two 15 year olds went out for a 2 hour boat trip along the Torridge river and estuary it was wonderful. Gary was extremely pleasant ,friendly and humorous. The views of the countryside and small town of Appledore lovely. It was one of the highlights of our holiday.

Took my 4 year old son on 2 hour trip. It was fantatstic, excellent safe boat with great rods and fresh bait that Gary will happily put on the hook for you and remove any fish you might catch if you want him to.
He also works for the RNLI so very safety conscious.
He even let my son steer the boat which was the highlight for him!
Cannot recommend highly enough for anyone, kids, teens, adults, keen fishermen or noices, you will enjoy it!

Great Fishing Trip
Jun 2014 • Friends
Three of us had a great two hour fishing trip down the estuary. Gary certainly knows the area and we quickly caught a codling before moving on to a second location to catch a large Dab and a second, larger codling. At the third spot we caught a lemon sole ensuring everyone would have fresh fish for dinner.

No fish but wonderful fishing trip!
Aug 2014 • Family
6 of us went out with the incredibly knowledgable and lovely Gary in his boat in this wonderful place. We went out to sea and then back up the estuary. If we were down this way again we would definitely go out with him again.

Great days fishing with a top guy
Aug 2014
Myself and friend whilst on holiday in Devon had the pleasure to go fishing with Gary. Despite limited experience sea fishing nothing was too much trouble even down to a loan of a water proof top. Three hours on two days was a great relaxing way away from the wife's and kids! Gary moved all over the estuary area to find the fish resulting in a few good catches. He provided all tackle and bait and it was nice to be left with having had value for money.
