Fly Fishing in the Te Anau Region

Hi, this is Peter's trout fishing page!

Since I left school I've had a great love for the outdoors, especially deer hunting and trout fishing.
In the last few years I've had a bit more time to further my fly fishing skills in some of New Zealand's finest trout waters, here at our back door.
I don't profess to be anything like a professional, just an ordinary kiwi bloke that's keen to go for a fish on a nice day.

Where we live here in Te Anau we have a vast choice of waters to fish. The only thing we can't control is the weather and the state of the rivers, but the fish will be there.

If you have the time to stay a little longer after you have seen the main sights of Milford and Doubtful Sounds, and have also brought your fly rod with you, why not come with me for a bit of fishing, but it will all depending on commitments on the day. I don't promise that I can put you onto a whopper trout but then it's complementary for staying with us for that little bit longer. ( min 4 days )

I don't hire fishing gear.

I fish for the sport and exercise, putting all but the odd one back for another day.

If you are a really keen fishing person and book your accommodation with us, we can arrange a professional fishing guide if you wish.

Tight lines,
