Father and two sons spent two perfect days fishing with one of the best guides in New Zealand. Julian improved our fishing skills in a couple of hours, and we caught fish and had an amazing experience. Heli fishing with Julian is one of the best experiences we ever had.
Julian will improve your skills, he´s great company and he takes great care of his clients.
Highly recommended!

My wife and I spent a day with Julian in the streams around Rotorua - many fish were caught, much fun was had, and we owe it all to him. Highly recommended, and we will definitely go back next time we are in NZ.

I fished with Julian a few months ago, and I couldn't recommend a guide any more. We caught fish, and attempted to catch fish that I would never have considered possible to even go for. It was a remarkable learning experience, and I simply had a great time. Outstanding customer service and patience on the river. Highly recommended.

Had two fantastic days with Julian and Shane on the central North Island with many amazing fish and experiences.
The stuff i've learnt from you guys definitly helped me a lot on the following time i spent in NZ to be more successful. Everything was perfectly organized and adapted to the current situations. Highly recommendable!
