    Ken showed us a great time - giving us a high speed boat tour of the rivers and lake, instructing us how to fly fish, telling us about the natural surrounds and generally being a great guide. We stayed out late on the river, and had a great time - looking forward to coming back

    I have been fishing in past 20 years in different countries with different charters but all on salt water, this is my first trout fishing trip as well as first fresh water fishing trip. Caught 3 or 4 very small trout, definitely below my expectations, but fishing is always

    Took my wife & 3 kids fishing on the jet boat & everyone had a great afternoon. Our guide was a legend, very helpful & a great sense of humour. The fishing was brilliant and the scenery amazing. Definitely worthwhile. Highly recommend as a great memory of beautiful New Zealand.
