At the age of 12, I first cast a fly into the rivers of Hawke’s Bay. Now, 35 years later, I am still fishing those same rivers and delight in sharing my experiences with visiting anglers.

My professional guiding began in 1986 and I have been a member of the NZ Professional Fishing Guides Association for the last decade. Working three seasons in Alaska and guiding guests of Poronui Lodge and Tongariro Lodge have added to my experience. I was Jim Teeny's guide when he produced his video Fly Fishing for Salmon

Locally, I have featured in the NZ programme Gone Fishing; appeared on Magic Streams Down-Under - a 12-part series on fly-fishing in NZ - and was one of the invited authors in the NZ publication Masters on Flyfishing.
