Julian made our trip, we had a fantastic full day guided Fly Fishing Adventure in one of the local rivers. by mid morning we had lost count of how many fish we had caught. One of us was only fishing for the first time and managed to catch some really impressive fish. Beginners luck?, not really, more like really good guiding and local Knowledge. Highly recommend Julian if you want access to the best conditions on the day.

Three of us spent two days fishing with Julian. One of the days was heli fishing which was absolutely fantastic. Beautiful scenery and hiking while fishing. The fish quality was stellar catching huge rainbow and brown trout! Would recommend to any angler to go fishing with Julian.

Had the pleasure of spending a half day fishing with Julian. His knowledge and passion of the local area is first rate. He also has a great ability to adapt his style no matter what level of experience. He also has a great ability to marriage his professionalism with a friendly personality which all makes for a great day out. Can not recommend Julian highly enough.

Morning session on Lake Tarawera this morning with Julian. Pauline and I had one of the very Best Guiding Sessions. Just on 18 Rainbow landed with Paulines best over 9lb. Jogging with Flies, locating fish and jogging at right depth. Watching the jigs at between 30 to 35metres and seeing the fish on the Lowrance HDS9 was helpful. Knew his gear and boat well. Everything well maintained and correct drag settings. Very attentive, helpful and great knowledge. Thoroughly recommend him as a guide and would defintely fish with him again.
