This father is a fly fisher tragic for trout and so too is his middle aged son!
Fortunately, both accompanying wives are very considerate women.
So, whilst father and son enjoyed 3 wonderful days fly fishing for brown trout in the great Mataura River, under the wonderful guidance of Wentworth Heights B&B owner, Barry Perkins, the ladies enjoyed the excellent hospitality of Barry's lovely wife and co-owner, Diane.
The rooms are immaculate and the sumptuous breakfast and provided lunch means can fish for ever! Afterwards, drinks and nibbles allow a few tall stories to be told!
