Spending the day with Clint, the local born and raised owner/operator and fishing guide, you can be sure that you will receive the best advice on what’s biting and be in with the best chance of landing that dream fish on the day!

Born and raised alongside the Daintree, fishing has been my way of life since early childhood. I've been involved in many fishing clubs and tournaments, including fishing internationally from black bass in PNG to blue marlin in Fiji. I now pride myself in offering clients the same opportunity to catch their dream fish and show them this part of the world that is purely unique. And some of the most pristine waters in the world.
