Hello! My name is Tom McAuliffe, your New Zealand fly fishing guide! I am a born and bred local kiwi from the South Island of New Zealand, and have a lifetime of experience and knowledge of all things trout fishing particularly in the greater Otago and Southland regions. My ambition for our time on the water together is to give you a fun, quality kiwi experience; I am incredibly excited to meet and share my passion with you.

I am a proud member of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association (NZPFGA), so you know you will be in good hands. Whether you are a first time angler, or an experienced fly fisher I can specifically tailor a guided fly fishing trip to suit. Fly fishing is my life! I am absolutely obsessed and immersed in fly casting, fly fishing, brown trout, custom fly tying, and our pure, pristine river and lake environments in the South Island of New Zealand. I am professional, friendly, experienced, and am dedicated to providing you with an experience of a lifetime. I am sure you will advance your fly fishing skills, while forming some outstanding memories.

I look forward to hearing from you, and locking in a trip!

Tight lines,
