I had my introduction to fly fishing through a Fly Fishing Expo at Thredbo. After the introduction I booked a half day guide with Clearwater Fly Fishing Guides where I learnt so much about casting, reading the water and tips and techniques about the craft of fly fishing. I throughly enjoyed my time on the river with Daf, His knowledge of Fly fishing, and the local area will leave you wanting to come back for more. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him, as you will learn everything you need to know about fishing the alpine waters and have a hell of a lot of fun doing it.
Daf has been my guide in the Snowy Mountains for almost 25 years and I still look forward to the next trip as if it’s my very first. Not only has he taken my fly fishing to the next level but each expedition is carefully thought out & his knowledge of the rivers & local activity means we’re fishing virgin water every time. For me it’s as much about the high country experience as the fishing itself and each day on the river with Daf is truly memorable, regardless of the fish count. That said, he has an eagle eye and uncanny ability to put me over fish in spots that I never expected, even today as a more experienced fly fisherman. I’ve lost count of the trophy browns we’ve caught & released together on the Thredbo River but each one has been pure magic. Over the years as my mobility and eyesight have made fly fishing more of a challenge Daf has been able to adapt his guiding to ensure the experience is every bit as enjoyable as the early days. I can’t recommend him highly enough!
Could not be happier with our day out. Super fun, great scenery and most importantly lots of fish.
It is very clear that Craig is extremely in tune with the area he guides in. He was able to put us onto fish and teach us many new techniques.
