Summer Fly fishing trips (October – April)
Superb backcountry fly fishing, rivers and streams accessed by comfortable 4WD. Nymph and dry fly fishing for wild brown and rainbow trout that will happily take a well presented fly.

Winter Fly fishing trips (May – September)
Fly fishing Taupo’s famous Steelhead rivers. These fish average just under 4lbs and fight like bucking bronco.

Cancellation due to the weather / river conditions is at the discretion of the guide; alternative fishing options will be discussed and agreed upon on the day.

What to Bring:
What you need to bring along – fishing gear (optional, Quality Gear available), rain coat, suitable clothing and camera. Heli fly in – Available Oct- April, price available on request.

Fishing Equipment:
Should you require gear, whether you are an experienced angler or novice I can outfit you to suit your needs. Most people prefer to use their own gear, so feel free to bring it with you.

Rods:
Depending upon the time of the year I can supply rods from 5 wt to 6 wt for the dry fly in the Summer to 7 wt to 9 wt for nymphing the Winter runs.

Reels:
I can match the reel and line weight to the rod chosen for the day or for the type of fishing we are doing.  Preference of left hand or right hand retrieve reels are available to suit your technique.

Waders:
From 1st October, 2008 felt soled boots were banned for fishermen in New Zealand.  I can supply rubber soled boots and breathable waders for the warmer Summer months and neoprene waders for the colder months of Winter if preferred.

Terminal Tackle:
All quality flies and tackle are supplied by me at no additional cost to you.
