Overview

  • Guided day fly fishing trips by four-wheel drive vehicle to sight fish local Hawkes Bay rivers and tributary streams using Tony’s specialty dry fly/nymph fishing rig.
  • Overnight guided fly fishing on the famous Ruakituri River in northern Hawkes Bay. Stay in farm accommodation above the Erepeti Gorge.
  • Backcountry fly fishing on Hawkes Bay headwater and tributary streams.
  • Guided fly fishing on the Tongariro River. Very good fishing all year round, particularly in the New Zealand winter months when trout are running up these rivers from Lake Taupo to spawn.
