Trippin on trout

Alex Waller operates "Trippin on trout", a Taupo-based fly-fishing guiding business. Here's how he describes it...

"My happy space is anywhere off the grid with a rod in my hand and that’s where I spend most of my time.  I am based in New Zealand as a guide and fish all over the North and South Islands.  I have spent years getting lost in the backcountry chasing the huge trout that live there and more recently have put a heap of time over the last few years exploring our saltwater flats fisheries for Yellow Tail Kingfish.

For me, this is the next level in NZ fly fishing and is a virtually untapped world class fishery just waiting to discovered.  I am doing more overseas trips each year and expanding my knowledge and experience on new locations and species all the time.

My love of fishing, the places it takes and the people you meet is what I thrive on. So much water to fish, fish to catch and not enough time to do it all....but I'll sure as hell try and do as much as I can while I'm here.

I am based in Taupo, which is right in the middle of the North Island. It couldn’t be more central and it offers endless options for places to fish. Everything from a day trip on the famous Tongariro River to overnight missions far out in the backcountry are easily done from here, as are saltwater missions if you want to take it to the next level!

If you are coming to New Zealand and want to get amongst it, then get in touch and let's go fishing!"
