My speciality is knowing the secret places on the Mataura River, where the wily and elusive Mataura brown trout can be found, and sharing these magic places with you.

As well as knowing the Mataura River intimately, I can also give you great fishing experiences on all of Southland’s other fantastic fishing rivers and streams, including excursions into the high and back country. I usually offer half day and full day fishing trips, but I can also guide you on two day trips to some of the remote rivers that run into Fiordland lakes - although these trips are only for the very fit as there is lots of bush bashing and river crossings.

There are numerous unique features that differentiate our fly fishing from the other fishing regions within New Zealand. These include: seclusion and tranquillity, beautiful natural surroundings, clean clear water, easy access to most rivers, wild trout hatcheries (rather than farmed trout), large numbers of trout in good condition, low density of anglers, and a high probability of catch.
