Had a great afternoon fishing, Stu was knowledgeable and passionate about fishing. We caught enough for a feed and were lucky enough for the local pub to cook it up for us. I would recommend Stu for a very professionally run trip.

Hi, we don't have a minimum age for children, but they must be supervised at all times, and all must wear a life jacket vest, which will be supplied by us. Fishing licences for children under 12 years old are free of charge.
