Thank you for your review, we think Valentina is amazing too! It's even better when the suns out and you can sit outside and look out at the river. :-) Many thanks, Stacey

Hi Helena, It's like any fishing there's a knack to it - some people catch a couple and others catch plenty. What you catch is yours to keep - no extra charge. Hope to see you soon.
