Let's share flyfishing adventures


Let's fish together!

For the past 30 years I have been involved in the flyfishing industry in some way or another. I have been a school teacher for over 18 years and a senior leader in the oldest university in New Zealand for the past 5. While working in the field of education I ran flyfishing courses, guided part-time, spoke at numerous clubs and became a brand ambassador for Manic Tackle (NZ). 

I am excited by the prospect that we will take a journey of flyfishing together. From hosting and guiding to instruction or volunteering for wonderful causes - I will enjoy sharing my time, knowledge and skills with you.

One of my passions is taking beginners through the sport of flyfishing - from understanding the basics of the cast and flies to reading water and safely releasing your catch. Sharing a parent/child day on the river to starting this wonderful sport is always easier when you have someone by your side.

These are the good old days and my commitment to you is that we will improve your chances of success and increase your skill level. The success and experiences of my clients are a great source of pride and satisfaction for me.

Simon Chu is the complete package. An exceptional and innovative angler, A top all round good guy, and a patient, attentive and articulate teacher. What this means for you is that you will soon understand the approach, the techniques and mindset of one of New Zealand’s top anglers and be employing them with Simon at your side on some of New Zealand’s finest match the hatch waters.

He’s a fly fisherman with the passion, Skill and desire to share his world with you, and an outstanding ability to do so. Time on the river with ‘Chuey’ is time which won’t be forgotten.”
