Guide Bio

I am an experienced, patient and skilled guide with an intimate knowledge of my local landscape. It is these world-class fly fishing trout waters and magnificent scenic areas that I have built my business and reputation on since 2000. My wife, an award winning travel consultant, and I provide excellent service to visitors looking for a one-of-a-kind fishing experience as well as accommodations, transfers and car rentals.

Born and raised in this region, I have been fishing and guiding extensively throughout New Zealand’s South Island for many years. I was taught at a young age to appreciate and respect the outdoors and environment. I love to concentrate on headwaters, alpine streams, mountain rivers and clear spring creeks. Over the years, I have been able to build special relationships with many farm, station and ranch owners to have access to the best back country rivers. I also have a Department of Conservation permit to fish within the National Parkland and the department’s preserves.

New Zealand offers some of the best fly fishing in the world. The Central South Island is one of the best areas to experience these amazing waters surrounded by spectacular scenery. I have a great reputation for connecting with clients and offering friendly advice. I enjoy sharing these locations and fishing these wild trout with my clients. It is my reward. It is something I am truly grateful for.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
