Rhys’s first trout catch solo…

Hey Nans. Had a great day with Richard. Learned a lot and had fun doing it. His tips may have paid off I’ll send a photo through.
– Thanks Rhys

I have to say this as good as it gets in terms of a guide service, not to mention the incredible areas to fish. Hans and Mike are excellent guides. I had the distinct pleasure of fishing with Hans who put me on some superb fish and provided an incredible fishing experience. He interjected humor along with teaching me much about fishing for the wary trout of NZ. The real bonus though is dealing with Nans, as she is Uber organized, delightful to deal with, and provided an experience that was effortless, as she lined up EVERYTHING!
– Good on ya Mates. Robert Coker.
