This was great. My wife had never fished before but the guys were fantastic, helping her with her bait and teaching her some tips whilst I got stuck in next to her which was really nice. They also knew some great locations so in the end I think we caught about 25 fish between us which is awesome! Really nice guys, funny and educational too. 10/10 from us
