I have had a cracker of an afternoon catching 2 brown and 1 rainbow trout (all went 28cm but were returned) out the front in the little styx. I hooked on to a monster and played it for a bit but i dropped it. Definitely would have been a personal best… I had another amazing afternoon with the trout, hooked up to 7 and landed 4 all were just on or under 25cm. I walked the lower section of the Styx on the backside of the property. I saw a couple of trout that would have been easily 30cm or more. Was tricky getting a good cast under all the trees, it never ceases to amaze me how the smallest shallowest sections still hold good fish.

Excellent family accommodation in a beautiful rural setting
