Rob (fishing guide) was amazing with my dad who is very frail and on a walking frame, dad caught 2 Barra and was absolutely stoked, well worth the money and Rob was the perfect host. Such a beautiful location scenery was awesome. Thank you Rob...More

We would have been happy with just one fish, but we caught about 15, so were well pleased. Rob was absolutely brilliant, his instruction was 1st class and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Can't wait to return to the NT and repeat the experience.
