Reference: "In early March, 2004, my friend and I spent 3 wonderful days fishing with Ben Kemp as our guide (and host) on Lake Brunner and on the nearby Lake Poerua. Be forewarned, if you fish with him, you will be spoiled for fishing anywhere else or with anyone else forever;

  1. First of all, the fly fishing for brown trout in Lake Brunner is incredible - in my case 19 trout in one day, all over 2 lbs.

  2. Second, he is the hardest working and most personable guide imaginable.

We stayed with him and his wife in their home and we could not imagine a more friendly atmosphere (including great food and wine). Oh, to be back! Dale Meier, Midland, Michigan, USA"

New Zealand Fly Fishing Guide

We've provided a detailed fly fishing information guide on this site to help you prepare for your trip to New Zealand.

We also provide information on NZ culture, Maori and European history, and the legendary West Coast explorer Thomas Brunner and much, much more!

Summers Coming...

The odds are, its going to be a good one, and here are three good reasons why that's so;

  1. The long term weather forecast predicts it will be generally drier in the West and that is always a positive indicator!

  2. We are overdue for a good cicada hatch...

  3. Last summer's beech seed production was much higher than previous years. For those who don't understand the implications of that - think mice... big fat mice, falling into streams... and that's why our brown trout quickly grow to such a huge size!

Don't Move!

Don’t move, don’t even twitch” Treebeard murmured. Eight feet away, in about twelve inches of water, a three and a half pound brown trout warily eyed the two unfamiliar lumps on the horizon of its small backwater. After several hundred subjective years, or a few objective minutes, it slowly resumed its elliptical patrol of the 100 foot long 80 foot wide, slowly moving, backwater on a New Zealand West Coast river....

Going Wild In The Land Of The Long White Cloud

You’ll never catch fish in New Zealand by yourself.” Repeatedly, this was the message I received when doing my exhaustive homework before setting out Down Under for the trip of a lifetime. The internet was trawled. I wanted browns, I wanted the majestic scenery of the South Island, and I wanted to know how on earth to go about it....
