"I had the best day fishing with Glenn. His friendly patient approach was greatly appreciated, especially as I am new to Trout Fishing. As an added bonus we caught some nice fish too!"

Robin, Hawkes Bay

"During my recent business trip to New Zealand I had the pleasure of spending 3 days on the river with Glenn. The enthusiasm he brings to fishing is contagious and refreshing. The fishing spots we went to were beautiful and the fish played their part. In a nutshell it was a trip of a life time."

John Wells,  Michigan, USA
