Background
I started guiding because I am very passionate about fishing and love to teach people the correct way to catch and release different species of fish. I also enjoy that clients are able to keep some fish. I love the feeling when I take out a client and they catch their targeted species under my instruction and they have a photo and a successful release. I love seeing our clients with those great big smiles on their faces once they have landed an amazing fish. I am passionate about fishing because it is the ultimate refreshing feeling being out on a boat in these pristine waters of the Northern Territory, and the adrenalin you get once a fish is hooked. Fishing up here in the Northern Territory has to be one of the ultimate things to do, and I do it for a living. The wildlife always amazes me every time I get on the water, there is such a vast amount of wildlife I see some thing new every time I am on the water.

We were booked to fish corroboree billabong but they sent us to Dundee beach. I was not happy that they changed with out telling us as we spoke to them the day before. I must say the guide was most helpful and tried his hardest to find fish all day, he worked hard all day for all the clients . I have had a lot to do with fishing charters and have fished and owned my boats for over 40 years. I feel the organisation and communication by the charter company was very poor and could recommend the guide but not the company.

That this is my 5th trip with Allan’s Darwinbarra and that I have landed 3 barramundi over 1 metre and many others between 700 and 900 mmm tells it all. Allan and his guys work hard and always put you onto barramundi.
