Come fly fishing with New Zealand Trout Adventures in the spectacular rivers of the top of the South Island. I am vastly experienced in fly-fishing the region and am looking forward to sharing my wealth of knowledge of the fishery and the fish with you.

This area abounds in spectacular beauty and is home to a good population of hard fighting brown trout. Because of the amazing clarity of the rivers these fish are almost all sighted before the cast is made. So you can see the action happening right in front of you. Most of the rivers that I guide on hold trout with an average size of above 4lb. Some extra special places have an average size of over 6lb! On a good number of days trout of trophy size (10lb+) are encountered.

An unforgettable trout fishing experience in some of the world’s greatest scenery.

We are able to also offer some of the finest saltwater fly fishing in New Zealand. The South Island saltwater fly fishing has been virtually untapped until recently. We are offering flats style sight fishing on the fly for huge Yellow Tail Kingfish and Kahawai and fishing in deeper channels for Snapper and Gurnard. To get amongst this amazing action check out our Saltwater fly fishing page.

I am a member of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association and have all the relevant concessions to fish on Department Of Conservation land. I have a current first aid certificate and carry all the necessary safety equipment for trips into the back country.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
