"A truly unique NT experience. We caught our first Barra. and then you exceeded our expectations with your determination and professionalism in ensuring we had a very successful two day safari. We saw wonderful wetlands, birds, crocs and many more. We will be back to catch the bigger Barra during the Run Off and will recommend you to all our friends & future Barra hunters."

"What a wonderful 4 day Barra & Bluewater Fishing Safari with Allan at Dundee Beach and the Finniss River. It was truly a most memorable and exhilarating experience. I was overwhelmed catching the boat limits on two days and the new experience of catching my first Jewy (what a beauty) and a multiple of other reef fish. The welcoming and sharing attitude of the Beale family back at your B&B was exceptional. Thank you again Allan for your fishing professionalism and Heather for your wonderful hospitality."

"It was great to see and fish the Billabongs -stunning scenery! Some nice fish as well and Allan has a perfect boat to explore these waterways. If you want to see lots of crocs and other wildlife and do some fishing on the way it's definitely a super experience. By the way Heather and Allan are very nice people."

"Allan and Heather, thanks for an awesome week. The fishing was great and your hospitality was unbeatable. That big 95cm Barramundi was certainly one to remember! Thanks again for the whole experience."

"It was a truly memorable day out, not only did Allan take us to places at Shady Camp that provided at least 2 Barra catches for each of the group - 90% of who had never been Barra fishing before! I had the added bonus of having the honour of joining the metre club - a sensational feeling of achievement. Everyone that was on the trip still talks about it as the best thing we have ever done together and now want to do a 2 - 3 day camp. Thanks again Allan for making it such a fantastic day and exceeding all our expectations."

"I just wanted to drop you line on behalf of Graham and I on the absolutely superb day we had with you. For 2 guys who have never fished for Barra before, this was certainly one of the best fishing experiences ever!"

"The fishing trip was excellent. We caught 8 Barramundi - all large and of legal size. Another 8 or so got away. It was very exciting when someone hooked up ... The host for the day - Tony - was excellent. Very pleasant person, good sense of humour, very safety conscious (except for slapping the water to attract crocodiles closer!!) and an excellent fisherman. The 4WD he picked us up in was clean, comfortable and a late model. The boat was well equipped, comfortable, clean and really good for fishing from."

"We traveled from Karatha W.A.. to Shady Camp especially to catch a Barra, and what a Barra that Allan Beale from Darwin’s Barra Base got us. Thanks mate for a fantastic days fishing and a trophy photo that we will cherish for a long time."
