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 focussed on offering you a highly professional guided service. We operate half day, full day and multi day packages. And our business operates all year round. All trips include 4 wheel drive transfer from and return to your local accommodation, or the airport.

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 a the end of the day. We include local fresh produce including seafood and wild game.
