Typical map included in the DIY package, here showing route and fishing on Bravura Dam Fact sheet and descriptive details supplied with both packages, with or without accommodation.For anglers wishing to find their own accommodation, are staying in the region with friends and family on a holiday and want to have some fishing whilst here we can supply the following services:

1) Arrange your licence
2) Provide maps showing good fishing spots in your area (scale i:25000)
3) Give general guide lines as to best methods to catch.
4) Provide information about fishing rules
5) Up to date information on waters in your choosen area-vital if you do not wish to waste your time. Some waters may have been drained and may have few fish, whilst others may have suffered 95% fish kills in the 2003/4 droughts.
6) Unlike other peoples maps, where I put a cross to fish, means that I have have fished there and you do not need a 4x4 vehicle or a helicopter to get to the spot!
