This is a great tour for those who know how to fish and those who do not. My husband is an avid fisherman in the states and had a blast learning to fish a little differently. Joe set us up and allowed us as much interaction as we wanted. My husband was able to cast and set the lines while I took a more leisurely approach and waited till they hooked the line so that I could just reel the fish in. Joe brought everything we needed including chairs so that we could sit down and enjoy the day. We were able to catch a few different types of fish and we never had to wait long before a fish was on the line. Thank you for a great time!

Very nice day. Steve made it info a very good day. i will highly recommend this experience to anybody, also not advanced fishermen. Also will I say that the journey to the place was very easy. Take the tube to the end of Upminster and the tage a cap for 5 min. and you are ready to fish. Steve was very easy to take to and he had som advanced ways to fish and he made all the hard work so I could relax. I will definitely com back at a later time to fish again.
