I would like to extend our gratitude to Simon, Ali, Emma and of course Charlie Brown for providing a fantastic day on board 'Supercat' yesterday. The Taupo staff fishing trip is a highlight in our calendar this year. The Claybird shooting, fishing and the dinner was fantastically organised and appreciated by all and we landed two Rainbow trout!

I wanted to send a quick note to thank you and your fine team for looking after our team. We all very much enjoyed our cruise and I might add the weather that day certainly enhanced the overall experience! We will keep in touch and look forward to working together again over what is shaping up to be a more positive summer season.
