Welcome to Rotorua Trout Guide Limited. Based in the Rotorua District we offer guided fly fishing trips to our fantastic streams and lake systems we have in abundance throughout the region. The world famous and highly regarded fishery of Rotorua is a necessary part of any serious trout fisherman’s travel itinerary to New Zealand yet so often overlooked.
My name is Julian Danby, owner and operator of Rotorua Trout Guide Limited – member of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association (NZPFGA). From a very young age I have successfully fished our local streams and lakes of the Rotorua region. I am now in a position to share some of my favourite fly fishing locations with options to suit the many needs and requirements of my clients. The region of Rotorua is lucky enough to have trout fishing opportunities available all year round. Remote crystal clear streams during the peak of the cicada season to the depths of winter casting a fly at trophy sized trout.
Fishing options range from half day trips to quench the fishing bug to a multi-day wilderness adventures for the serious fishing addict. Heli-Fishing is one of the best ways to experience the world class fisheries in the region. Some of the water in this back country will not see a fisherman all season, something now very unique in New Zealand where most backcountry fisheries see high numbers of people.
We are now offering saltwater fly fishing for Kingfish on the tidal flats of the region’s harbours. This fishery has gained a lot of momentum in the last few years and I look forward to showcase some of the best saltwater fly fishing around the globe.
Please have a look through my website and I look forward to guiding you on your next fly fishing adventure.
