A fantastic couple of hours on the beautiful lake Taupō with a true blue kiwi bloke. If you want to catch a trout this is the pirate to do it with. Knowledgeable, relaxed, plenty of great stories and fish! If you are after a fancy pancy, pretentious or touristy experience look somewhere else. If you are after fish, a laugh and a real kiwi experience, look no further.

A magic experience with Richard on Lake Taupo. Watching the absolute joy on the faces of my two grandchildren, when they both landed two Rainbow Trout 'on their own', was lovely. Then to take the trout on ice all the way back to Christchurch, watched over by the children was fabulous. By the time the kids cooked them and presented them to their families to eat, it was a dream they will always remember. The whole experience was down to Captain Richards easy direction. His knowledge of fish and the lake make it an exciting experience, as opposed to a boring frustrating experience. And I must admit this Grandmother was excited to bring in two fish. I had never fished in my lifetime. I believe it is part of our Kiwi culture 'to go fishing', so to share this with my grandchildren was magic. Richard is a natural with kids!

Richard had a lovely professional, kind manner with my grand-kids and myself. Although he used his knowledge and expertise to get us six Rainbow Trout in two hours, the kids felt they caught and reel in their two all on their own. And so they did, with a few select words and directions from Richard. Our experience on Lake Taupo with Richard was the highlight of our two weeks away. Brilliant, exciting, peaceful, healthy and such fun! We put the trout on ice and watched over them, back to Christchurch. Family and friends cooked and enjoyed eating them! Magic! Thank you Captain Richard from, Ngaere, Ariana and James. You rock!
