This is our fourth visit with Kate and John. Their hospitality is just wonderful, as always the food Dean presents is awesome to say the least. We experienced our best day ever of dry fly fishing with Paul. We hate to leave this beautiful place - we will return again. - Tom and Meg, NSW Australia -
