CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

“FISHTASTIC”

We'd been unsuccessfully fishing until Justin showed us the way. Highly recommenced investing a few hours with Justin to pick up the basic and improve your chances. He was extremely patient and didn't rush us as he explained until we picked it up. We were both ecstatic when caught a couple of fish each. Can't wait to meet up again to improve some more skills. THANKS JUSTIN!!!!

GREAT EXPERIENCE AND LOTS OF FUN”

We have very limited fishing experience but Justin was great at explaining everything and teaching us the basics of fishing. We even managed to catch a few fish ourselves which he cleaned and packed for us. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend access fishing to anyone. Thanks Justin!

Justin and Mirabei are fantastic and very patient and honest fishing enthusiasts! Justin is such a nice guy we exchange lots of nuggets of fishing info. Justin is very knowledgeable about fishing and gave lots of tips and where to land your 1st fish. We caught 9 Australian herrings and trumpeters in just 1 morning using his gears, baits and techniques that he taught us. love it! You got to come here to Dunsborough and Geographe bay!

“GREAT WAY TO SPEND SOME TIME ON THE BEACH”

The fishing classes are a great idea for the kids as well as adults who haven't fished in Geographe Bay before.

“GREAT EXPERIENCE”

Justin from Access Fishing just loves what he does and it shows. We did his 2 hour beach fishing experience. He supplied all the equipment, cleaned our catch and was friendly and enthusiastic the whole time. Thoroughly recommend.

“AWSOME FUN”

We hired rods, all fully rigged which came with bait and tackle box for our kids to go fishing during the school holidays. Access fishing were so helpful with advice and a map of good fishing spots. Our kids had so much fun and it was such a reasonable price. I would highly recommend hiring rods from these guys as an activity if you are looking for some fun while on holiday. October 2015

 

Very knowledgeable staff with locally hand-made quality timber lures and flys.

“FRIENDLY AND KNOWLEDGEABLE SERVICE”

Justin was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable; with his extra tips it was surprising that we didn't catch anything. Access Fishing is well worth doing, no matter how good you are at fishing, your age or whether you are on your own or doing it as a family, you’re guaranteed to enjoy it. I would have loved to catch some fish but the morning was still fun and the beach we fished off was beautiful. Access Fishing is a must visit if you are near Dunsborough.

Justin and his better half were fantastic with hiring fishing gear and top local knowledge of the area for anything and everything... thank you was a terrific experience.

An absolutely fantastic experience with Justin. Our 2 boys loved every minute. Excellent advice for the young and old, delivered in a super friendly manner with good old fashioned service where the customer is made to feel like number one. Well worth the money. Thanks so much Eli, Brayden, Glen & Jeanette

Excellent service, great prices and all the gear you need for a successful fishing trip on this beautiful region. Thanks Justin!

“REALLY HAD A GREAT TIME!”

We really had a great time with Justin. When we arrived at the Eagle Bay everything was already setup. He even had beach toys for my 3 yr old daughter. My partner got a lot of informative tips and tricks in fishing. My daughter loved the whole experience. Well recommended!

Jubot May 2015

Super friendly family owners, top notch equipment, great advice, well priced. No need to pack the stinky fishing gear for the trip down south anymore, just pick up a couple of rods and all the bits to go with it. Thanks guys.

“SIMPLY BRILLIANT!”

As a complete novice fisherman Justin got me started and I caught my first 'huge' fish. A fun afternoons introduction into fishing. Thanks Justin

Martin Williams Feb 2015

 

“VERY GOOD”

We hired gear for 2 hopeless fisher-people! Justin was very helpful and patient in explaining everything to us and providing lots of local knowledge about where to go. Prices seem reasonable. Would recommend to everybody and will definitely use again next time we visit.

“WANT TO FISH? THIS IS THE PLACE!”

We visited Justin following a recommendation and I can't describe enough how friendly, knowledgeable and outright helpful he was. My knowledge of fishing is small (my partners slightly better) and Justin took us through about an hours’ worth of impromptu fishing lesson whilst sharing his obvious passion and enthusiasm of the sport. I can't recommend them enough! And, as for value for money, what a result. Worth every dollar and then some. It doesn't matter if you just want to have a go, as I did, or if you want to do some serious grown up fishing. Whatever your choice this is the pace to go.

“FRIENDLY, INFORMATIVE, GREAT DAY!!”

We stumbled across Justin’s Shop after seeing his leaflet in town, we were complete beginners, Justin gave us an in depth introduction into coastal fishing for no fee, even with all our stupid questions, this made our day one of the best in a long time, beautiful fishing locations locally, and incredible value for money! 100%recommend hiring fishing gear here!!! Enjoyed it so much we are going back in 2 weeks for a week of fishing! Thanks mate!!!! 

Chris, Laura and Becky from London Trip Advisor February 2015 

I had a rod refurbished recently, absolutely marvellous service, prompt and a top bloke who didn't mind a chat and didn't mind showing and explaining how he does it. Totally recommend.

Dimitri Koksov January 2015

Super friendly family owners, top notch equipment, great advice, well priced. No need to pack the stinky fishing gear for the trip down south anymore, just pick up a couple of rods and all the bits to go with it. Thanks guys

Emma Graham January 2015

Justin, thanks for the lesson today. The kids had a great time as did Robyn and I and it was great that they all managed to catch at least one each. Trent managed to catch 2 South Gars afterwards. Thanks for the great and friendly service and especially your patience.

“GREAT FRIENDLY SERVICE.” 

Saw on-line that Justin offers fishing courses. We went to the store to check it out and got talking to Justin who offered plenty of advice about where to fish in the area, when and how to rig the rods. We bought some tackle and burley which were reasonably priced and came with great advice. Given Justin's pleasant and honest style we asked about his fishing lessons. We went that afternoon and he brought everything required, rods for our 4 kids, drinks, snacks and bait. He then set about teaching our kids aged 8 to 12 the finer points of fishing, etiquette and safety. He kept them engaged and encouraged them and made everyone feel very comfortable. He answered all our questions, helped rig the boys own rods and shared his obvious passion for fishing. Having Justin there took the stress away from trying to teach 4 kids how to fish, and I even got to cast a line myself. Importantly all the kids caught at least one fish each, in most cases several (and a crab!). At the kids request he taught them how to clean and prepare a fish. He ended up spending more than the 2 hours we paid for with us, and left us extra bait to have a go ourselves. All in all it was a great day thanks to Justin's patient, friendly nature, knowledge of the area and passion for fishing.

“SUPERB CUSTOMER SERVICE.”

Called Access Fishing looking for some specialised coaching for my son's new bait caster reel. Justin told us what he knew and then went on to provide us with his abundant local fishing knowledge. He did not charge us a cent for his time and knowledge however we did then go on to purchase some fishing tackle from his shop despite there being absolutely no pressure from him to do so. We used this information and within ten minutes of the first cast my son had his first fish on the line. Next time we are in this wonderful part of the world we will definitely call in again to utilize Justin's friendly & professional service.

Such a great business. Lovely staff and incredible prices. Kids had a ball with the brand new rods we hired. Highly recommended. Everything you need, even as a beginner.

Desiree von Bergheim January 2015

 

Great value for money when it comes to family activities on holidays.

Great, fun service! Thank you for all the advice in our first fishing expedition ;-)

Dagmara Parol January 2015

AMAZING SERVICE AT A GREAT PRICE. 

Justin was amazing to deal with. Rigged the lines for the kids and such great value. Amazing service and just something you don't get all the time. We will be back. All the kids caught a fish thanks to you guys. Thank you.

January 2015 

Great service, great equipment, great everything! Justin was a great guy, quick with a joke and with lots of knowledge that he was more than willing to share about great fishing spots, the equipment and even a little bit of sightseeing. Would recommend to friends and wouldn't go anywhere else if I was to return to the area. Thanks again mate! :) 

Ben Grubb January 2015

 

Awesome service, very helpful tips!! Thanks so much Justin.

“THIS FISHING PLACE IS TRULY THE BEST IN THE WORLD”.

With Justin's pleasant service and patient explanation, we caught 13 fish at Meelup beach in Dunsborough! The equipment provided was superb and everything that one would need for fishing was there! Thank you Access fishing, you really make fishing accessible to the layman! Thanks for making our last day in Dunsborough such a fantastic one!

Great stuff, for the kids it was the highlight of the vacation – 37 fishes and a huge squid ! Thanks Justin.    

David Pare July 2014

 

Justin was very helpful. Great prices and great service. Made him aware that I needed a 'Fishing for Dummies' tutorial before hiring out some rods and equipment- and that's exactly the quick 10-minute tutorial he gave me. Definitely recommend. Will use this service again soon!
Cheers Justin!

Dylan Timms March 2014
