Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned fisher, you'll benefit from Matt's passion and knowledge of the Kosciuszko region.

Fly rods, reels and waders are all provided, along with pick-up and drop-off from nearby accommodations in a modern 4WD. Top-quality flies are also supplied, some custom tied for the region. All snacks, meals and refreshments are included.
