Chris was a fantastic guide! Not only was he knowledgeable & helpful in teaching us about the fish & fly fishing techniques but he was also just a blast to spend the day with. His ability to spot the fish was incredible & allowed us to catch some big fish! He was kind enough to share his fishing tips & suggest great places for us to check out on our own. We could not have asked for a better guide. We will absolutely be going again & suggest to all our friends/family!

As a professional fishing guide, Chris Bell provided me with fishing experiences I look back on with pleasure. Chris took me to some of the great trout fishing spots in the South Island of New Zealand and gave me the experience of spotting, casting to and hooking trout. He had a canny eye for spotting trout and then showing me how to present the right fly/nymph in the most natural way. Chris has a focus on the environment that exceeds that of anyone else I have ever come across. He practices catch and release and cares for our flora and fauna. On one occasion, we stopped in the middle of the Southern Alps to search for a small native bird that had flown into our windscreen. Chris had a highly professional approach to my health, safety and well being and, following a fall, provided competent first aid and follow-up treatment. He has a safe pair of hands.

Just completed 2 days with Chris and had the time of my life. Chris was the most amazing guide I have ever fished with, his ability to spot fish was incredible and his approach to give you the best shot to hook them was second to none. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone, just wish someone had recommended him to me on my first trip here.

We had an awesome time with Chris on our two day back country adventure. It was very clear from the outset his main objective was to put us onto fish (large) and make sure we had a great time while doing so. He's always eager to impart as much of his knowledge as possible on all aspects of fishing NZ. Chris is a brilliant & skilled guide and very enjoyable to spend time with. Chris is not the first guide we've used over the years but from now on will the the only guide we use. We cant wait until our next trip!

The best fishing I have ever experienced. This was my second trip with Chris, and he again impressed with his knowledge of local waters, ability to judge his client's ability and strong focus on customer satisfaction. We spent three days with Chris, and every location was well considered, taking into account weather conditions to ensure we had the best fishing experience. I'm looking forward to the next trip, knowing that Chris will make it just as memorable.
