Zane Mirfin

I’d like to introduce my friend and guiding buddy Zane Mirfin.

Zane is based in Nelson and runs Strike Adventure.

Zane began guiding in 1985 at 18 years old and is now one of New Zealand’s most experienced guides. He still gets excited about climbing aboard a helicopter and heading off on an epic journey, targeting selective brownies and living the dream

Zane holds BSc. and MA. degrees from the University Of Canterbury where his Masters Thesis: Trout Fishing in Nelson – Management of a Recreational Resource, was a seminal document on the region’s fisheries.

During the 90s Zane gained international guiding experience during four summers in Colorado and has also fished extensively throughout the western United States, British Columbia, Christmas Island and Sweden.
