This November I returned to the North Island for a week fly fishing the Hawkes Bay region with Peter Godfrey. We explored sections of the Rangitikei, Taruarau and Ngararoro Rivers, camping at many spectacular places. We predominately caught Rainbows around 45 and 55cm lengths along with the occasional Brown. I was impressed with the speed ...continue reading Fraser Perry – Hawkes Bay

Contestants have three days to fish ...continue reading Fraser Perry – 20th New Zealand One Fly Competition
Earlier in November I explored the Geehi, Upper Swampy Plains and Murray Rivers in NSW with Eddie Savkovic. Contrary to conditions on the more popular rivers in the Snowy Mountains, these rivers had good numbers of fish and offered enjoyable fishing. Warm temperatures, an abundance of insects and feeding fish made for a satisfying weekend ...continue reading Fraser Perry – Southern Snowies
Last weekend I explored two new alpine waters in the Snowy Mountains with Tumut local Trent Jeffrey. We fished the Tumut River and its tributary the Goobagandra River which both produced a few Rainbow and Brown Trout for us. These rivers aren’t quite as far as the more well-known streams in the Snowies, but offer ...continue reading Fraser Perry – New alpine waters
Last season I had the pleasure of fishing the Eucumbene River on closing weekend for these lovely Browns. With the NSW Trout season now open, it won't be long before you see some new Eucumbene captures from me on the Riverworks blog.
Fiordland is one of my favourite regions to fly fish in New Zealand. Here's one of my captures from the Fly Junkies 2013 NZ Tour.

Ready for an adventure, we walked into a back country river with little expectations other than rough terrain, harsh weather and challenging fishing. The rivers we fished all delivered in this respect! Day after day of rain ...continue reading Fraser Perry – 2014 NZ Tour Part II: Mt Aspiring National Park

A few weeks ago I had a trip that will be etched into my mind for a while to come. It all started late last year while I was wearing a dress shooting clays off the back of a boat in Lake Taupo - as all good Stags should. Amongst all the schemers onboard causing ...continue reading From Back Country to British Columbia
