20+ Years of Experience

Skipper - Scotty

I grew up in Porthleven, a remote fishing village in the southwest of England and was immersed in everything to do with the ocean.  My father was a commercial fisherman and diver so I guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree.  I emigrated to NZ having travelled through the Pacific Islands and Australia over 20 years ago.  NZ became my choice of country due to the exceptional quality of the fishing and of course the culture that's all about the great outdoors.  I have been fortunate enough to have fished alongside some of the top guides and skippers of NZ.  These people have helped turn my passion into my occupation.  My goal in life is to share fantastic fishing experiences with likeminded people who respect our incredible fishery.

See you out there!
