Ever since I arrived in New Zealand some 20 years ago I've developed an all-consuming passion for fly fishing for both brown and rainbow trout, and an odd salmon as well. Over the years and many magazine assignments I had the privilege to fish with some of the best guides this country has ever produced.
Later I took to guiding myself, partly to spend more time on the river, and largely to share what I have learnt. I no longer guide but my friends Ian Cole and Craig Smith, have taken over the Wanaka Flyfishing Academy where they share their collective knowledge with a few kindred but less experienced souls and where the passion for trout and fly fishing blends with excellence and the know-how.
I am a regular contributor to FLYLIFE, the leading flyfishing magazine in Australiasia. I have also written a book on trout and fly fishing titled THE TROUT DIARIES, a fly fisherman's year in New Zealand, which is out in bookstores now.
