Local fly fishing guide Ray Nelson of Rotorua and Taupō Fly Fishing Adventures makes it his business to put people on memorable fishing action, and what’s more, he’s very good at it!
Ray was born and raised in Rotorua. He is a great-great grandson of Tarawera guide Maata Rangitukehu who, along with her relatives, guided tourists to view the famous Pink And White Terraces before the Mount Tarawera volcanic eruption in 1886. One could definitely say guiding is in Ray’s blood, and he’ll be by your side on his ancestral lands.
The Rotorua region is world renowned for superb trout fishing, and with many lakes, streams and rivers, it is an anglers paradise. Your guide specialises in fly fishing and all equipment needed for your adventure is provided.
Remote wilderness fishing is something many anglers dream of and the best way to reach the unreachable spots is by helicopter! These trips are best in the summer months when trout feed freely with next to no angling pressure.
Booking a trip with Rotorua and Taupō Fly Fishing Adventures opens the door to the incredible world of New Zealand freshwater fishing and with an expert guide like Ray catching a trophy trout is only a matter of time.
