New Zealand fly fishing guide Andrew Blake offers guided New Zealand flyfishing for trout throughout the Lake Taupo and Central North Island areas of New Zealand and is a New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association member.
Fly fishing New Zealand for trout is a great way to see our country and Trout fishing around Taupo is world renown. We fly fish a variety of waters and know which is fishing well. If you have never been fly fishing for trout before or have years of trout fly fishing experience we can tailor the perfect day fly fishing in New Zealand for you.
While we take our fishing seriously at AA, having fun on the water is also important. We provide everything and all you need is a good sense of humor and a camera to take pictures of your trout.

Thank you so much for your time and patience in teaching us fly fishing in New Zealand's beautiful North Island.
From the get-go we felt very comfortable with you as our guide and though we had never been fly fishing for trout before, you made it seem easy. With your fantastic knowledge of New Zealand's North Island we were awestruck by the number and size of the trout.
A 5 & 6 pound brown trout each and then 3 more rainbow trout by the end of the day! Still telling our friends how fantastic the whole experience was and how good we are at fly fishing! We'll definitely be back for more, you've got Adam hooked (he's bought a salt water fly fishing rod & reel), he's practicing in Oz on our salt water rivers to perfect his fly casting technique for our next fly fishing trip to New Zealand's North Island.
