The Ghantous Boys From Sydney Australia

This is the 4th trip Bassam and his 2 sons Simon and JP have booked with me, and its one I really look forward to each season ! We decided to head away from our usual base in Southland and head further North this time. We based ourselves in the small tourist town of Twizel in the Mckenzie region this trip,  from which we could drive to several world class rivers each day. Again the weather was up and down with plenty of wind , overcast rainy days and good a dusting of snow even one night ! The rivers were all high but clear in the region and holding some great rainbow and brown trout which were all in fantastic condition !
