North Island Fly Fishing Guide

" Thank you so much for recommending Johnny to us. We had 2 days with him. I thought he was an excellent guide. He worked hard to find us good fish and we caught them. My wife had not fished for trout before and he showed her how to cast patiently end effectively. She connected with 3 fish on and landed 1. Although I have fished for river and brook trout for more than 40 years, I learned a lot from him. He was good company, provided delicious snacks and meals and was a credit to NZ trout guiding."

"Johnny is one of the best up and coming fly fishers in New Zealand.

His skills are at a very high level and these skills make him a great guide."


Geoff Naylor, NSW, Australian Fly Fishing Team

"From a family excursion to the challenge of experts, Johnny will share his passion and secrets, guaranteed an unforgettable experience. Patient with beginners and extremely technical with the experts, he will meet the expectations of all."

This week we went out with New Zealand  fly fishing guide Johnny Gummer to a lovely back country river. It was a truly amazing experience, great fishing, great food, great company. My wife and I caught 5 excellent trout, both rainbows and browns and missed several more. My wife who is still learning to fish came ahead leaps and bounds under Johnny's patient tuition. Despite being 45 years younger than us there was great rapport on the water and Johnny inspired us to walk further and fish harder than we ever had before. You know you have a dedicated guide when he continuously battles the strong current to check out every likely reach on the far bank!
We cannot recommend Johnny more highly, if he doesn't get you onto fish no one will and to top of a magic day he produced a cold beer each! Fantastic.

"Best father and son Christmas present ever. Had a terrific day, learned more than we would have in years on our own in just one day with Johnny. He has a unique gift in his ability to teach anyone of any age. His passion is contagious and we are looking forward to a future trip with Johnny. "
