Fly Fishing Guide Simon Wilkinson

I grew up in the North Island of New Zealand on the banks of a famous  Hawkes Bay river, the  Ngaruroro River.  I spent a great deal of time fishing and exploring the Hawkes Bay, Taupo and Central North Island.  I worked in The Central Plateau for 10yrs before moving down to base in the myself in Queenstown, New Zealand in 1995.   All my time in the South Island has been involved with working in the outdoors as a fishing guide,  jet boat captain, heli ski guide and ski instructor.   Combining my various skills has helped put me in a position of having an intimate knowledge of New Zealand and it’s fabulous fishing waters while also giving me the patience that a high level background as an instructor/guide provides.

Please go to My Fly Fishing Expeditions section to see the different fly fishing expeditions I offer and remember I can always customize expeditions to suit you and your needs.
