Chris has been a passionate angler all of his life. His obsession began at an early age chasing bonito on the rock walls in Perth, Australia. Starting with bait then progressing to spin and finally, naturally, he found Fly Fishing. Chasing the dream, Chris moved to Tasmania where he honed his art on the wily brown trout of the Western Lakes. Numerous holidays to visit his brother in NZ also ensued until finally the calling of the world's best trout fishery was too powerful to resist. Since arriving in Te Anau, Chris has spent every single waking minute exploring and getting to grips with this complex but incredibly rewarding fishery. Working in the local fishing outfitting store in the off season keeps him on-the-pulse of the fishing scene, and there is very little fishing action that happens locally that Chris isn't privy to. Dedicated, professional and passionate - Chris is a perfect fit to guide you on your Fiordland adventure.
