Your fishing guide:
Hello I am Michael Rowntree and I have been professionally guiding trout fishers on the North Island’s many rivers, streams and lakes since 1995.
I grew up in Turangi on the banks of the mighty Tongariro river and started fly fishing when I was seven years old, it is not only my passion but a way of life.
Whether it is fly fishing the World famous Tongariro river or sight fishing on a small stream to awesome rainbow or brown trout, I will make sure you have the most enjoyable trip of a life time.
First time fishers are welcome, I also do fly casting tuition if you would like to make that first step into the fly fishing world.
Sports spin fishing for trout is also available at certain times of the year.
Fish the Tongariro river and streams that flow into Lake Taupo, back country rivers, the Whanganui river, Whakapapa river and many others. I also take people still water fishing on small lakes like Lake Otamangkau.
