Fly Fishing on the West Coast

Guided fishing on the West Coast

Welcome to the rugged beauty of the West Coast. One of the most beautiful, wild areas of the country, the West Coast is known for its glowering mountains, forests and wetlands, glaciers, wild coastal beaches, old gold mining settlements and clear, clean rivers.

And its trout.

Fly fish the beautiful lakes, or go after the bountiful brown trout in back country, mountain rivers and streams. The South Island has long been a favourite destination for fishermen from all over the world. Less populated than other parts of the country, the West Coast, provides the ideal opportunity to challenge your fly fishing skills.

John Boyles is one of the West Coast's longest serving resident fishing guides. Having lived in the area for thirty years, John has been a professional fishing guide for the last twenty years. He knows the country and he knows where the fish are.

Adept in the art of fly tying, John knows just how to lure those trout to your line. Willing to give lessons in fly casting, John is able to cater for groups and individuals of all experiences and specialises in guiding clients onto large sighted brown trout and stalking trout in
wilderness rivers.

Helicopter and four wheel drive access for your convenience.
