Would just like to say a very big thank you from the both of us. By far the best place and experience we’ve ever had. It ended up more than fishing. We seen the culture and met great people and the food was amazing too.
Pepe, maxi and zay were great. We couldn’t of asked for better people on the boat. They took us to the best places and every place we fished we caught many fish. So we owe them a big thanks. We had a great laugh together an made friends we’ll never forget.
I would recommend this place to any fishermen that want to seek that extra level of fishing. The only one bad thing about the holiday was having to come home. We could of stayed there for the rest of our days!!
We enjoyed the visit to the village an it was an honour to meet the village leader. Was a big eye opener to see they way they lived.
The orango Island in Guinea Bissau is a truly amazing place and if I won the lottery I’d be sure to buy a house there or on one of the neighbouring island!!

Many thanks to you and Jo for arranging this brilliant holiday for us. We are already thinking about next year and the possibility of a fishing holiday in the Florida Keys at Islamorada….
Best wishes – David

Bijagos – Guinea Bissau
Firstly Vin and I would like to thank you very much for our wonderful trip to Guinea-Bissau, the fishing was fantastic. Also the arrangements and logistics ran like clockwork. After working 20 years in Africa and 13 years in the Middle East, I understand that that does not happen by chance but by meticulous planning and organizing our African brothers.

Having just returned from our fantastic Guinea Bissau fishing adventure with you I would just like to say a big thank you from Matt, Dave and I. The ‘Stella’ organization was great from the moment we stepped off the plane at Banjul Airport until our sad return 10 days later. The fishing was everything you said it would be and a lot more! Tarpon to 200lb plus and several 25lb Jacks every day. The variety of species was amazing; my tally was 18 species in 8 days of fishing. The boats were as good as they get with excellent skippers and the Acunda Fishing Camp was ideally situated on its own small private island. We will certainly be back in the near future.
Many, many thanks again for a GREAT fishing adventure.
Trevor, Matt and Dave
Canada – Salmon & Sturgeon Fishing
Thank you for an excellent fishing trip which was absolutely brilliant. Chris and our guide Steve looked after us and nothing was too much trouble.
Although Sturgeon was our main quarry on arrival, its not surprising how easy it was to be swayed into the Salmon fishing. As well as catching lots of big Sturgeon, we also caught Pink and Sockeye Salmon up to 7.00 plus, Chum to 25.00 plus, and Chinook to 35.00 plus.
In all honest Richard, this trip has been the best foreign trip I have ever experienced and I have travelled far and wide in search of weird and wonderful species over the years. Both Bob and I will be returning in 2007 when the Pinks run again. Once again mate, Thank You!”

In terms of feedback for the BC trip, all I can say is that it was fantastic – the best holiday of my life! Not only did I catch some amazing fish including 2 sturgeon over 300lb (up to 350lb – 8′ 2″ long!) but I also caught numerous fish in the 150 – 200lb class and more besides. I also had a great time with the Pink Salmon on the fly and managed to hook into a Halibut and some Coho Salmon whilst on Vancouver Island. In addition to the fishing we had a great time Sea Kayaking on Vancouver Island, White Water Kayaking on the Chilliwack river and Mountain Biking from the top of a mountain in Whistler. Vancouver City was a great place to visit as well. I must give big thank you to Richard Sheard for all his hard work and exemplary organisation. Everything was like clockwork.
Hi Richard, just a quickie to let you know how the trip went.
Arriving in Cabos after midnight, we checked in to the Mar De Cortez with a little trepidation. We were quite unsure about the hotel! It certainly was not the Hilton. However next morning with sunlight and a bit of heat, we were absolutely delighted with the hotel. It was exactly what we required. It provided a great base to fish from. needless to say the hotel staff were wonderful !, and we would not have changed hotels for anything.
Pisces Fleet were also wonderful. We had loads of fish each day, Tuna ( to 50 lb.), Dorado (to around 50lb) , Rooster (to around 30lb). I lost ( thru my own stupidity, I might add) a Wahoo of unknown size (but it felt BIG!). The box lunches were great, but far too much to eat ! 1 between two was enough !
The Marlin were thin on the ground all week. But on the last day John boated one at around 10 a.m. Mine came on the very last moment before the boat returned to harbour at around 5mins to one ! Both fish were 180 to 200 lbs. Not large by Marlin standards, but more than ample to give us the thrill of playing large fish. Needless to say, we are both over the moon!!!
Thank you for organising a fantastic holiday for us both,”

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for organising a fantastic holiday. It was my partners 50th and I wanted to organise a special holiday.. After telling him we were going to the Gambia and that I was happy to sit by the pool or the beach whilst he went and landed something large, he persuaded me to join him on the fishing trips. Now I’m converted!
We did one day boat and one day beach fishing and the thrill of the experience was fantastic – even for a girlie! And I would have never have believed him about the one that got away unless I was there!
The hotel was fantastic, food great, beach out of this world and the people were so welcoming and friendly. We even fitted in a couple of excursions… Recommend the lazy boat tour, cheap booze, great food and very relaxing.
We can not believe that such places are only 5 hours flight away. We definitely will be going again soon.

Just thought I would take time to say what a great holiday Jill and I had at Hemingways. We did not know what to expect when we arrived but immediately started to unwind in the stunning location. The staff were great as was the fishing and the safari. We cannot wait to get back there again next year. Thanks for a truly wonderful holiday.
