Great day out with Stu on Lake Wakatipu. Despite the intermittent rain, and also a slow start in terms of fish caught, Stu was a knowledgeable and entertaining host. Our family group included a 5-year old, who had a fantastic time, and was fully engaged and enthralled by Stu's lessons. End result was 7 trout caught, one very happy 5-year... More

Great day out, Stu is a great guide full of great stories about the area. Fishing is great going and his boat is very well equipped. Stu recommended we take our catch over to the pub and man they taste great that fresh. Doesn't get much better.

My partner and I were both total newbies in fishing but we signed up anyway. According to Stu we had an usually quiet afternoon but we still caught three fish (two rainbow trout and one salmon) in I think a couple of hours. It was lovely sitting on his boat in Lake Wakatipu with great weather and scenery around us,... More

We went out for just two hours and each caught a few fish, which we were able to bring back and cook! Stu is very knowledgeable about the area and tells the best stories! We will definitely be giving him... More

Half a day of fishing on Lake Wakatipu with Stu is an unforgettable experience. The scenery is amazing, of course, and Stu's local knowledge on many aspects adds interest while getting to and from the fishing grounds. His stories are very entertaining too! I'm glad we went for the half day charter as anything less would have ended too quickly.... More

What a great morning! Stu picked us up and we then enjoyed two hours fishing in a beautiful environment. Although complete novices Stu made us feel very comfortable. We enjoyed two hours great conversation and came away with our dinner which we have just really enjoyed - wonderfully tasty fish following Stu's recommendation as to how to cook. We would... More

Coming to Queenstown regularly I always go fishing. Today I tried stu out and he is by far the best fisherman in Queenstown!!! Previously I have used other guides and wasted money. My advice don't Waste your money with any other tour and go straight to STU DEVER. Great host and top bloke
