We guarantee that you will catch a fish of some sort, if not we give you a 50% refund. We supply a selection of rods, reels, handlines, bait and lures (lures to be replaced if lost). You are also welcome to bring your own gear. We are supporters of sustainable fishing practices and have therefore imposed our own limit of 3 fish or 3kg (unless a single fish filleted weighs over 3kg then you can keep whole fish) per person per trip.
