If you are heading to Queenstown do not miss an opportunity to get out and have a fish with Simon. We had an awesome few hours on the boat and can’t wait to go out again next time I am in Queenstown.

My son and I had an impromptu trip this afternoon and had a fabulous time. Simon really knows his stuff and is completely down to earth and a genuinely good bloke. Thoroughly recommend.

Simon, our fishing guide made the experience amazing. He's passionate, informative, and even made us sashimi once we caught our salmon. Thanks again!

Fantastic to experience Lake Wakatipu up close and wet a line. Simon has good knowledge in fishing, and makes everything effort to ensure you land something. Got a brownie and chinook! Wanna go back for more!

We went fishing with Simon in December and it was a fantastic experience. Very knowledgeable fisherman who provided us with an excellent service and I caught a 6lb brown trout on one of my first casts. Would highly recommend, fantastic value for money

The best day out this summer in Queenstown. 5 lads out on the open water, in the sun, beer in one hand and a rod in another. We caught 4 BIG fish in total and had fresh sashimi at half time. Couldn't recommend it enough,...More

I had a guided fly fishing trip with Trevor, and it was a blast. He completely transformed the way I think about fishing and deepened my understanding about what is happening under the surface of the water. The locations we went fishing were absolutely beautiful...More

H, your best option is to choose the private charter (boat to yourself). You can book direct through tripadvisor. No charge for the infants, private charter is $1200.00NZD so that works out at $240each.
