"What a terrific day out! Weather and conditions weren't working with us but Ashley Hallam came through and went above and beyond to find us the fish, not only did we have a cracker day out on the water with Ashley we actually bagged out while he filleted our entire catch. Massive thanks to both Ashley and the Owner Shane who organized the whole trip on only a few hours notice."
