A big thank you to Mike. After some great advise I tried the float tube last Friday 22nd and over about 3 hours took 9 fish with a PB of a rainbow about 8lb. Also took my first ever blue. Now bought a tube off Mike and its the best most relaxing fishing I've ever done. The hospitality, advise, surroundings and quality hard fighting fish are an absolute credit to Mike.

Cheers mate.

ps. Just off a 4 hr ticket today on my own tube and although hard going took 3 tigers (1st ones ever) and a blue about 4lb. Can't get enough of this place. Best buzzer water ever.

Fantastic fun though, was quite warm rain so was pretty good ;)
