Hi Guys,

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Andy and his Team on Board “Odyssey” for a memorable fishing trip of a lifetime.  They definitely go out of their way to make sure everyone was looked after, and no request was too hard. The food on board was well above the standard that I had expected, with fully cooked breakfasts, refreshing lunches, and 3 course dinners, I was worried I would not be allowed on the plane to return home as I might have put on too much weight. Thanks to the chef for food that tasted like it was out of a five star restaurant. The fishing guides were outstanding in their knowledge of being able to put us onto some big fish, and then it was up to us to catch them. Fishing for me is a great relaxation, and the fact that I did not have to clean boats, tie my own rigging, or worry about what type of lure to use made it even more enjoyable and relaxing.  However a full 6 days of fishing from 7.30am to 5.00pm everyday can exhaust anyone, and I was particularly glad to do some “Gentlemans Fishing” with one of your guides namely Harry.  Jason and Andrew have a vast amount of experience and are very willing to share their knowledge in knot tying, what type of rig to use, and also demonstrating how to fillet fish with ease.I have attached a photo of one of the many fish that I caught, it was a 15kg Coral Trout one of the biggest I have ever seen. Once again Thank you, and hopefully next time my wife will be able to accompany me to share some outstanding memories,

Regards Alan Faggotter
