The 'Master'in action - Tony EntwistleAnton Donaldson has been a passionate trout fisherman for as long as he can remember.

From a very young age he was exploring the rivers of the West Coast in search of brown trout.

He is an excellent outdoors-man and has spent many days and nights in the south islands wilderness areas.

His favorite method of fishing is stalking large brown trout in crystal clear mountain rivers.

He likes nothing more than sharing this experience with others. He is patient, knowledgeable and proficient at helping others spot, present a fly to and ultimately catch trout.

Anton is a proud member of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association and follows the stringent safety and professional standards put in place by the association.

Anton can tailor a unique experience for you based on your wishes and ability.

Based in the amazing Golden Bay Anton offers full and half day guided trips as well as overnight camp-outs and Helicopter drop-offs to remote locations around the top of the South Island.

To maximize your Fly fishing try a road trip with Anton. That way you will experience the diversity of waterways that the region has to offer.

Trout in the area tend to average around 4lb and fish of 6-8lb are not uncommon with much bigger fish occasionally sighted.

Transfers and accommodation can be arranged by request.

Let Anton take care of the hard work, so you can just relax and enjoy the experience.
