Introducing Simon Wilkinson




Id like to introduce my friend, and guiding buddy, Simon Wilkinson of  Fly Fish New Zealand  

Based in Queenstown, Simon is my 'go to' guy whom I confidently refer enquiries to in the case that I am already booked on the dates you wish to fish.

Simon is a battle tested guide, and is well versed in the local tourism industry.  Lets hear what Simon has to say for himself...  


"I grew up in the North Island of New Zealand on the banks of a famous  Hawkes Bay river, the  Ngaruroro River.  I spent a great deal of time fishing and exploring the Hawkes Bay, Taupo and Central North Island.  I worked in The Central Plateau fro 10yrs before moving down to base in the myself in Queenstown, New Zealand in 1995.   All my time in the South Island has been involved with working in the outdoors as a fishing guide,  jet boat captain, heli ski guide and ski instructor.   Combining my various skills has helped put me in a position of having an intimate knowledge of New Zealand and it’s fabulous fishing waters while also giving me the patience that a high level background as an instructor/guide provides."


I am happy to reccomend Simon for either a summertime fly fishing adventure, or a Queenstown winter ski package.
