Welcome to Peter Warren Fly Fishing

The Nelson region is world-renowned as a superb brown trout fishery, and quite rightly so. The rivers are clear, flowing through native bush and, in them, large brown trout with honey-golden flanks and spots on their sides as big as your thumbnail.

But these are not easy targets. They can be selective, always wary and, when hooked, dirty fighters, heading for rocks, logs, and anything else to aid their escape. But they can rise freely to a dry, take a nymph with enthusiasm and smash a cicada.

If you want to take up the challenge of hooking into a Nelson brown trout, I can help make that dream a reality.

Guided fly Fishing Trips

I have been fly fishing since an early teenager. I was brought up on a farm on the banks of the Rangitata River in Canterbury. I spent my younger days in summer chasing salmon and brown trout in the Rangitata. Now settled in the Nelson area, twenty minutes south of Nelson, I offer guided fly fishing trips.

I provide top quality guiding service with 4WD vehicle or arrange boat transport and helicopter fly-ins to remote headwaters.

As well as day trips, I offer camp-outs, staying in forest huts and multi-day fishing trips. This keeps you right on the water and maximises the time available for fishing.

“There's no finer adrenaline rush than tightening up on a large brown trout and watch it tailwalk across the pool, rod doubled up and reel screaming.”
