Les avis



It was an amazing experience!
A lot of stories shared about the history and the way of fishing.
We really enjoyed it.
I personally don't like fish in general but this was really tasty and I liked it!
I will recommend this to friends and family and other people I get to talk to about this truly worthwhile experience.
I also want to come back one day and experience the fishing itself.

Thanks a lot for sharing your stories with us, and I will never forget this!!!
