If you like to fish with me, please use the form below to state your requirements and preferences. Or Contact me directly if you need more information. Most of my trips are out of Wanaka and Queenstown but my fly fishing safaris and expeditions cover most of the New Zealand’s South Island. Once or twice a year you can find me at my old hangout in Turangi, in Central North Island – fishing the Taupo, Tongariro, Otamangakau and Whakapapa region. You can join me there ex Taupo.

Rates and Conditions:

The guiding rate is NZD 800 per day, for 1-2 anglers ($850 out of Queenstown as it adds extra two hours to my day.) Campouts are NZD 200 per person including all except alcohol. Any on-the-road costs: accommodation, meals etc are shared as they occur.

To secure a booking and firm the dates, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required. All payments are via PayPal. Upon making a booking, you will receive a Paypal partial invoice which is payable within 7 days. The remainder of the payment is due prior to the commencement of the trip, as per final Paypal invoice.

Cancellations and the small print:

If I commit to our dates, I turn down other trips and work for this time. For this reason, if you book a trip and cancel within 60 days of commencement, there is 50% non-refundable payment. If you cancel within 14 days before the trip a full payment is required. Trips may be cancelled due to truly apocalyptic weather and floods. However, as we can roam over a wide area and diversity of waters, there is usually somewhere we can fish even if the original itinerary is changed.

What I provide:

  • guiding, expertise, local knowledge, good time
  • road transport, good food and beverages
  • relaxed fishing atmosphere
  • flies, tippets, other expandables, etc
  • rods and reels if you don’t have your own

What you need:

  • NZ fishing licence, available online at Fish and Game NZ
  • Wading gear appropriate to the season
  • Personal items: rain jacket, warm clothes, camera etc
  • sense of humour and an open mind
