Totally enjoyed a day fishing with Brett Cameron as our tutor, guide & companion. In the morning we tried fly fishing.I'm a complete novice but with his tutoring I caught & released a couple of trout. I enjoyed the tranquility of river fishing. Brett picked us up from our hotel: he has all the fishing equipment, waterproof clothing & waders so we needed to take nothing with us. In the avo we went out fishing for a few hours on the lake in Brett's boat. After that we were happy to head a little out of the main centre to soak in the excellent geothermal Wairakei hot pools before pizza at the Two Mile Bay Sailing Club. Perfect.

I booked Brett for an afternoon fly fishing excursion to the Tongariro River and had a great experience. Brett was professional, friendly and corrected my bad casting habits. The rainbow trout were some serious river monsters. Recommend.

We booked Brett for the day -- our first guided fly fishing trip ever, and first in New Zealand. My husband is an experienced angler; I am a beginner at fly fishing. Brett spent time on his cell phone while with us, and at times disappeared altogether, including once when my husband had a fish on and needed a net. Brett would show my husband where the fish was and then let him get after it, without much instruction or guidance. My husband had a strike early on and missed it; Brett was so frustrated with about the miss that he went on about it several times that day saying how he had missed a "golden opportunity." By early afternoon, I felt that Brett had given up on me and was just focused on finding fish for my husband. And he did in all fairness, as my husband caught several. I would not recommend Brett for a beginner; I was upset almost from the beginning because of Brett's impatience, frustration, and lack of ability to truly teach and instruct. If I was less determined about learning to fly fish, I would have given up on the sport after that day.

We fished for two days in different beautiful spots. Brett was very good and patient with me, as it was my first experience with fly fishing. Prepared the nicest sandwiches and snacks and had everything you could possibly need on a fishing trip. Loved to do it again!

Spent a great day fly fishing with Brett in Taupo back country. Hadn't fly fished for 25 years but still managed to get about a dozen fish on drys and nymphs and learnt a heap. Brett is an excellent guide. If there is a fish around he will give you your best chance of catching it. He has a genuine love of the fishery and the environment which made the experience even better. Lisa also catered extremely well for my food intolerance. Thanks cpf!
