As a highly experienced (fly)fisherman in Europe, I never thought of booking a guided trip before. But Peter showed me how wrong I could be. No skill or experience can beat local knowledge!! Peter is a great tutor and guide, he is there with you all the time, knows how and where and learns you more than you could wish... More

A recent chance meeting on a river lead me to have some guided time with Peter. He is an educator! The time with him was not just about a few enjoyable hours on the water. It was a watershed in the development of my fly fishing skills. Peter was affirming, encouraging and gently challenging. With his guidance, I had the... More

I had never gone fly fishing , but learning that Tomgariro Lake has a world class reputation for fly fishing, I booked an individual lesson for half a day with Peter Wilton. The morning of our trip, it was raining very hard and very windy. Peter was flexible and suggested we postpone our outing until the afternoon when the weather... More

Peter was a fantastic guide for my wife and I on our honeymoon! I am a fly fishing enthusiast and it was the perfect mix for me and my wife who is a beginner to the skillful art. Peter took us to a beautiful river, provided all of the gear and instruction, and did so at a very reasonable cost.... More

If you're reading this review, book Peter, now! My husband and I had a day's fishing with Peter in May 2015. We stopped in Taupo after 4 days travelling the Central Part of the North Island. My husband is a skilled angler, I am a beginner - having gone a dozen times in the US but still learning the basics.... More

We wanted to experience fly fishing and learn the basics so we booked a half day with an expert. Peter is a master of the craft and an exceptional teacher, he loves the sport and is prepared to teach others and share his knowledge. His teaching style was simple explanations, followed by practical demonstration and practice followed up with positive... More

My son and I spent 4 days fishing with Peter in the Taupo Area. We had a fantastic time. The fishing was great and Peter was simply superb as a guide. He worked with Callum my 17 year old son, encouraging and coaching, and put me onto challenging water. We fished the lower Tongariro, rafted and fished the upper Tongariro... More

I spent three days fishing with Peter Wilton around the great Taupo area. Day one was local rivers, day two was back country and day three was a helicopter ride into the bush. Peter exhibited all the attributes you want from a guide--keen fish sense, patience and focus. With decades of guiding experience, he is intimately familiar with local waters... More
