    I couldn't recommend Richie and Four Reasons enough. My son and I went on a 6hr trip. We caught dog fish, bull huss, tope and mackerel. There were 8 passengers in total all ranging from inexperienced to very competent and Richie was attentive, helpful and none patronising to all. He shared his knowledge on fishing, the local environment and some, not at all bad, 'Christmas cracker' jokes along with tea, biscuits and sausage rolls. My son improved his skills and knowledge during that 6 hrs learning how to unhook dogfish, from Richie, and he became quite a dab hand at it. The boat was well equipt and comfortable (has toilet) and there is plenty of parking in the jetty from which it departs or a beautiful walk back into Conwy for the train or busses. It is a truly stunning location from which the boat leaves (beautiful Conwy) and from where we fished between Puffin Island and Great Orme's Head. Gorgeous scenery. Highly recommended.

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you very much Yvonne, I glad you had fun and enjoyed your day. Thanks Richie

  • 5-star Jon Wheway (18/06/2016)

    Out with Richie today and can only thank him for the determination he had to get us on the fish. If a mark wasn't working we moved. If the tactics weren't working we tried something else. So ok, we didn't get any tope which was the ambition but we did catch 7 species in all. Thanks for all your efforts, I'll book on again as soon as I can and also sort a dads n lads evening. Cheers

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Jon, hopefully see you all soon cheers Richie

  • 5-star Julian Smith (03/04/2016)

    The five of us set off on the Four Reasons with Skipper Richie and his son Lewis on Sun 03/04/16. From the outset Richie provided us with a good detail about what he would hope to provide for us on our 6hr trip. Richie is a knowledgable and very approachable and when not managing the boat had time to chat and provide good advice about what baits and rigs to use. We fished several marks that day and the general catch was small whiting,dabs and doggies Fishing is what it is! Someitimes the catches arent big but hey! none of us drew a blank. Richie catered for all skill levels including me a boat novice and I was very impressed. Likewise his son Lewis was equally knowlegable and extremely helpful. Overall we had a great day and along with the welcome teas, coffees and a sausage butty we all had a great day out. Highly recommended from five guys from Winsford Cheshire!!!!

    Skippers Reponse: Many thanks Julian for your review, looking forward to the return trip, hopefully we will find some nice fish cheers Richie and Lou

    Despite adverse weather conditions Richie managed to put us on a few fish. We weren't lucky enough to fish the wrecks {due to the winds} but hopefully we will next time. It was our first time out on Four Reasons but it won't be our last. Richie and his son Luke are very knowledgeable and always took time out to help all the anglers out. the hot drinks were more than welcome as were the tasty bacon butties. See you soon.
