I would like to thank you again for the recent barramundi fishing trip you organised for our group on the Daly River. Your organisation, knowledge and planning made it a huge success – completely stress free and extremely enjoyable. The successful smiles on everyone’s faces on the plane home was proof of this.
My family hailed the barramundi that I caught and you packed for us as the “Best tasting fish ever”.
I would recommend one of your trips to anyone and hope they have as much fun as we did.

Thanks for taking me on your Barra Trip to the Top End. It was nice to leave the rainy weather behind to go to a place where you can rely on perfect, warm tropical weather of the dry season in the Northern Territory.
The only complaint I have, is I need to diet for a couple of weeks after all that beautiful food at Banyan Farm, and the morning teas and lunches onboard the boats with Micko and Shannon. But that’s ok, plenty of Barra in the fridge.
Everything from the flights, the cars, the accommodation, Banyan Farm, the XXXX boats, to getting all the barra back to Brisbane, then home still as fresh as when we left, went just like clockwork. I think it was the most relaxing trip away that I have ever had. All I had to do was eat, fish and drink. Pretty hard to take.
You never forget what it’s like when a big barra hits, then you are quickly reminded why you are there. “There’s nothing like it.”

Talk about an organised and passionate fisherman. From the moment I contacted Stuart for our Northern Territory fishing safari he had the ball rolling immediately. Deposit, flights, hire cars booked, what to bring, etc, it all ran like a Swiss Watch. I have fished in various places around the world and Australia and his organisational skills are top shelf.
Stuart entertained us with interesting yarns around the campfire at night and showed his passion and prowess on the water the next morning.
In our circumstance with a short time frame to fish, he optimised our available time to get the most of the experience and the most fish. I would have no hesitation in contacting Stuart if you are contemplating heading North for a short or long trip.

Fishing the Northern Territory’s Daly River on “Barra Mania’s” superbly organised Barramundi fishing tour was a once in a lifetime experience!
Everything from the flights, transfers,guides, meals and accommodation was top shelf on the trip and I thank Stuart for making it all happen.
Catching my first Barramundi(83cm) was a blast and something I’ll never forget.

I went with some mates on my first barra expedition with Stuart from Barra Mania. The trip was well organised from start to finish.
The Daly river is pristine and an experience not to be missed. Thanks to Stuart I managed to land my first barra which was over 90cm long! A real adrenalin pumper. That was the start of a few days of landing barra. Stuart is a good bloke and he takes a professional approach to being the guide.
A highly rated life experience for me and the mates!

Having been on a Barra Mania fishing trip already, my husband insisted it was the perfect holiday for me.
So having rounded up a group of our friends, 2 of us being women, we planned our trip. Stuart made it easy to organise & helped with everything that needed doing. Nothing was too much trouble.
We arrived at camp & it was so nice to do nothing for a while, just sit with a cold drink or 3. The fishing was excellent, it is such a thrill getting a barra in the boat. I was so impressed with the accommodation and the all the meals that were prepared for us. I think I gained 3 kilos that week, I ate so well.
If you want a holiday where you don’t have to cook or clean, just fish, eat & drink I recommend that you do this trip at least once. It was great value for money and so relaxing.

Without a doubt the most exiting days fishing I have ever had. Four of us in one boat all hooked big Barra’s at one time, we landed three & should have gotten the fourth but we were all fighting over the landing net. Great experience thanks Stuart.

The families of two buddies, Peter and Trevor, were seeking an appropriate 80th birthday gift for each of them. They lit upon a Barra Mania fishing trip to the Northern Territory. What a success story! Neither had previously caught a barra. Both arrived home with the photographic evidence of their trophies, high in their praise of a great, well conducted trip. The photo of one of Trevor’s catches was subsequently immortalised on his 80th birthday cake. Thank you Stuart.
