My friend Ted Mathews and I made arrangement to fish will guide Julian Peters of Mataura Valley Trout Safari. I have fished for years from Alaska to Argentina but Ted had never fly fished. Julian selected a Winston rod for Ted and expertly tutored him on how to cast. Ted caught a beautiful brown. Julian has an uncanny ability to spot trout. Ted and I had a wonderful and memorable experience fishing the Wiitahuna River with Julian. I highly recommend Julian to anyone interested in fishing for trout in New Zealand.

Though I have fished for years in the UK this was my first experience of true guided sight fishing in such clear waters. Julian was very professional and after "testing the water" on one of the main rivers we moved up to a high valley stream. This gave me a true experience of sighted fishing for NZ brown trout in small streams. Good advice and frequent changes of fly options yielded a number of takes and some landed fish. I would highly recommend Julian to all levels of fisherman and look forward to a future return!

Julian was the guide for our first fly fishing adventure in Gore & I would highly recommend his service. He was patient, easy to chat to, extremely knowledgeable & determined to ensure we experienced some of the best fly fishing in the world. He catered for our different fishing abilities with ease and we ended the adventure with far better fishing skills & understanding of the fly fishing craft. I can understand why he has so many returning guests each year & we look forward to being one them.

We had an amazing day with Julien trout fishing just north of Five Rivers in the South Island. Julien is an amazing guide, and instructor of fly fishing. From the pick up at our BnB to a great lunch, we had a great day - in the rain. We would highly recommend fishing with Julien and Mataura Valley Trout Safaris.

Julian Peters is a highly competent, accurate, consistent in finding the fish and advising the anglers what to do in a relax and flexible manners even in difficult environments. He also supplies nice lunch which makes the day with the trophy trouts.
