I was lucky enough to have Jake guide me and a couple of mates for a day fishing. We had an awesome day despite a lack of experience on our part. Jake was very patient with us and got us on to some world class fish, we landed some stunning fish and I'm sure a more experienced angler would have landed many more than we did. What an awesome way to see one of the best parts of the New Zealand outdoors and get to engage with it rather than just pass through.

This was my first time fishing with a guide and from now on I will be looking to do it once a year. Jake was patient, easy going and provided very good chat. He guided all four of us on to PB brown trout. Jake planned our accommodation, fishing and food extremely well and timed the weather perfectly. In amongst the fishing he also guided us on to some deer one morning, having us back fishing in the afternoon. Trip of a lifetime and Jake has promised to step it up a level next time, looking forward to that

Went for the day with my father and my friend, my father and I were complete beginners and my friend was an amateur. Ended up catching 3 fish and almost catching a dozen more. Very impressed with Jake’s patience with us beginners, we learnt so much and I really didn’t think I would have any hope of catching a fish! Beautiful idyllic NZ scenery just topped it all off! Thanks a lot Jake.

I have been fishing twice a year since 2016 with Jake and I have to admit it is addictive. Beautiful opportunities with expert advice. Jake has knowledge, tolerance, patience and most of all a good sense of humour. There is nowhere else on the planet but I would prefer to be with such a good mate.
