Fly Fishing Guide New Zealand - Peter Wilton

Kia Ora  I'm Peter Wilton a professional fly fishing guide, welcome to my world of classic New Zealand fly fishing. Maybe you've always dreamed of a fishing trip to New Zealand to cast a fly on one of our fabulous rivers or perhaps you're visiting our beautiful country for the first time and just looking for that memorable Kiwi experience. While traveling throughout the North Island enjoy a stop in the scenic Taupo region world renowned for its fighting rainbow trout. Take the opportunity of spending a few hours or better a whole day casting a fly on one of our internationally renowned trout fishing rivers Fly fishing New Zealand rivers can vary greatly in the experience they offer the visiting angler and whether you're an experienced, seasoned fly fisherman or woman or perhaps a novice, there's a river in our region for you.Whether its big water echoeing the sound of thundering rappids like the Tongariro made famous by the American angler Zane Grey or the more serene waters of a bush clad stream or spring creek our region has it all. The ultimate angling experience for the more discerning fly fisherman, a visit to one of our remote wilderness New Zealand rivers, those waters over summer inhabited by large wild, wily brown and rainbow trout.

Fly Fishing Taupo

 Summer 2017 sees the Taupo Fishery in good shape, out on the great lake there have been reports of rainbows in great condition with also an increase in the number of smelt this season. December saw the green manuka beetle arrive in the region particulary in the western bays and the upper reaches of the Taupo rivers.Cicadas are now starting to make their presence known and with the heat & recent moisture their numbers will only increase.Of course its the rivers both local and back country in the hills that really interest the fly fisherman and in both cases these have been rewarding to the competent and on several occasions the first time angler.This season has seen several customers with their first fish on the dry fly with rivers like the Tongariro and upper Tauranga-Taupo having fished well for this time of year.

 Back country well the fishing has as expected been great with rivers that I regulary fish over summer producing both rainbows and browns in great condition. Wether you select a full day where we drive to a hill country river or stream, a raft trip down the scenic upper reaches of the Tongariro or for many competent anglers the ultimate experience, a fly in to one of our wilderness rivers like the upper Mohaka or Ngaruroro good nymph and dry fly fishing awaits you.

 So what of the remaining prospects for the summer ahead, well with lake run browns just starting to arrive in our Taupo rivers and with the best of summer back country dry fly fishing ahead of us from February to April you are absolutely spoilt for choice.
