We spent several days fishing the rivers in the Gore area and found this to be an excellent base to operate from. The accomodations are excellent as were the breakfast meals. The Perkins were wonderful hosts and provided excellent advice on restaurants and other facilities in the area. Barry also provided us with good fishing information even though we didn't utilize his excellent guiding service on this trip. We would highly recommend the Wentworth Heights B & B to anyone planning a stay in Gore, even if they aren't fly fishers.
