“Hi Gary and Fiona. Thanks again for making my trip to Tassie such a memorable one. You took care of me as if I was your own father; fishing me out of the water when I had an unscheduled swim, drying me out and encouraging me to catch more fish. The food esky was great (Thank you Fiona!). I came away a much wiser fisherman. Before I left Tassie I bought myself a new Cortland, forward weighted fly line and tapered leader and can’t wait to serve it up to some of our scarce WA trout. On our last day in Tassie Glenys went with me to THE fishing spot at the No2 Weir where I caught another trout to demonstrate my skill to my wife. I hope that one day I might return and do it all over again (without the swim). All the best. John Gunnell”
