Mark was extremely patient with us showing us how to fly fish, ducking around various parts of the river (lovely just seeing that) and then the fun we had trying to hook a fish. A really lovely touch... More

Great location, great boat, great company and a great time. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. A big thankyou from the... More

We were looking for a special afternoon in Te Anau to celebrate my Dad's 60th, Fish Jet caught our eye. And we are so glad it did! Dad & my partner had an awesome time fishing the Waiau (the water is so clear, you can see the fish - amazing), and drifting in the boat down the river was something... More

I have been on numerous guided trips over the past 20 years and this was one of the best trips I have ever booked. Our guide was fantastic. He had me on huge fish all day and was extremely patient with my wife who is a novice. We both caught big fish and had an absolute blast! The jet boat... More

Had a surprise 35th Wedding Anniversary by being picked up by Ken to bunk work and go fishing for the morning. The weather was great (rain held off) fish were plentiful, not a sand-fly to be seen. We would totally recommend this to any one who has any sort of interest in doing a wee spot of fishing with a... More

We had a great time fishing with Mark! Although the river level was up which made trout a little harder to come by, we had great success with some of Mark's pro tips and caught 5 fish total, 1 brown and 4 rainbow. The size of the fish was pretty incredible compared to what we have here in NC. The... More
