Fly fishing and New Zealand rivers have an international appeal.Our crystal clear waters, their wilderness qualities and of course fish those large wild rainbows and browns that inhabit them draw anglers from around the world. Kia Ora, Welcome I'm Peter Wilton a fly fishing guide of twenty four years, a passionate angler of twenty more but most of all an advocate for New Zealand's beautiful wild places, namely ' Wild Fish in Wild Rivers ' This alone stands at the very heart of the New Zealand fly fishing experience. While travelling throughout our beautiful country it quickly becomes obvious rivers dominate our landscape.Some carve their way through majestic gorges on their journey to the sea while others flow more sedately through hill country boarded by sheep farms and forest. All are unique in the angling experience they offer the visiter but one aspect unites them making them uniquely New Zealand, they are all captivating, each immerse you in their spell drawing you back time and time again to make that cast in their crystal clear waters. Welcome to my World.
SPRING- SUMMER 2021-22.
The 1st of October has come and gone and with it the arrivial of new oppertunities for the angler who looks forward to fly fishing in rivers and streams that lie just outside the Taupo fishing district. With spring and summer angling, my own thoughts turn to that little remote river or stream that I fished late last season. Tucked away in its own sunlite gorge some where back in the hills with its roaring rappids, emerald green pools, tui and bellbird song echoing from surrounding bush, it has left its imprint in my angling dreams.
Then of course there,s the fish, those wild wiley red spotted browns and pink flanked rainbows that inhabitat its crystal clear waters. Add to that the smell of moss and ferns, the sound of its rappids and a gentle warm breeze at your back to help lay out a cast to a rising fish and you have all the ingredients of fly fishing heaven.Welcome to the central North Island and fly fishing in summer.
