There is something magical about hooking into one of Hawke’s Bay’s hard fighting acrobatic Rainbow trout or powerful Browns. We would like to think we can leave you with some of that passion and enthusiasm we feel each time we fish one of our beautiful New Zealand rivers. So our style is relaxed and informative. We enjoy a few laughs and can share some good stories, but at all times we remain focused on offering you a highly professional guided service. We operate introductory, half day, full day and multi day packages. And our business operates all year round.
For our 2022 season we will meet you near or at the river, or arrangements can be made to pick you up at your local accommodation.

These trips are fully hosted by Gary, including comfortable home stay accommodation, all meals, equipment, transport and Guiding. Price on enquiry. If you want to live and breathe fly fishing for two or more days, enquire about our Regional River trips. You can experience different rivers each day, fit in an evening rise and generally spend more of each day chasing your next catch.
These trips are fully catered: Breakfast and dinner on site and lunches on the river. Menus and drinks preference can be arranged by prior consultation. The meals have proven to be a major attraction for regular clients as we prepare wholesome, kiwi style meals, with a variety of breakfast choices, nibbles and a celebratory drink at the end of the day. We include local fresh produce including seafood and wild game.
We have four main rivers open and Lake fishing during the Winter season which offer a number of fishing opportunities. Fishing is dependent on weather and river conditions. Price on enquiry.
