Living on a dairy farm with a small mountain stream as a boundary, and a father interested in fly fishing, the seeds were laid for me to take up fly fishing. Every spare moment was spent on this little stream trying to outwit the cunning Tasmanian Brown trout.
This led to trips to the world famous Tongariro River, where the hard fighting rainbows & the large brown trout linger. Like most anglers, I had the ambition of catching one or two elusive double figure fish. This ambition has been fulfilled.
I enjoy fishing & guiding in the backcountry rivers with the feeling of being the only person on the river. I practice catch & release on these rivers, as they are wild fisheries.
I have had much pleasure in introducing people from all over the world to fly fishing in our paradise. With quite a few becoming close friends. A warm welcome awaits you - whether a beginner or experienced angler to experience our Kiwi hospitality & top class fly fishing.
