About Trout Bohemia Guided Fly Fishing
Fly fish in New Zealand with Derek Grzelewski, the author of internationally acclaimed books THE TROUT DIARIES and THE TROUT BOHEMIA. We offer custom-made itineraries for discerning fly fishers. The level of your skills is less important than the flame of your passion. Join us if you'd like to pursue the best fly fishing in the world that is to be found in New Zealand. We are based in Wanaka and Queenstown but our fly fishing safaris and expeditions cover most of the New Zealand's South Island: backcountry, heli options, spring creeks, Southland hatches, big fish hunts. Twice a year - in summer and in winter - we also offer week-long hosted/guided fly fishing packages in Turangi, fishing the Taupo, Tongariro, Otamangakau and Whakapapa region. If you'd like to fly fish with Derek, and experience the magic of THE TROUT DIARIES and THE TROUT BOHEMIA, to meet the trout bohemian tribe and to chase hatches and the big fish with us, please visit the BOOKINGS page and use the enquiry form there.

Derek was not only my guide on a 5 day fishing trip, but he also made lodging arrangements and provided transportation and meals other than dinner. I could not ask for anyone more talented and dedicated to sight fishing brown trout. The weather notwithstanding, I had a trip of a lifetime. Derek is a soft spoken, thoughtful and polite gentleman, but when he is on the hunt he transforms into a total professional dedicated to putting you on the fish and helping you to catch, land and release them. He is not a 8 am to 4 pm guide, but will take you to the evening hatch, and take you to off the beaten path water that he has personally explored. The location of River X is a closely guarded secret that will die with me. Personally, Derek is affable, friendly and very well read and can converse on almost any topic. He is good company-something to consider when you commit to a multi-day excursion. I'll be back.

I've been fortunate to fly fish with some great angling characters here in New Zealand. But a trip with Derek stands out. He embodies the rare blend of sport, science and art that takes fly fishing to the pinnacle. He's got the sharp eyes of a naturalist, an enthusiasm for sight fishing, a mountaineer's endurance, and a hunter's instinct. He knows some great rivers. And he's plain fun to fish with.

As founder and director of Castabroad I am privileged to meet many fly fishing guides around the world. Derek is a patient, story wielding, and knowledgeable guide that makes a day or two or 10 splendid. His forte is getting away for 3-4 days with his client into some remote stream or two far far away on overnight campouts by the water.

If you want sight fishing for weary Browns or feisty Rainbows then Derek is the man you should call on. From back country streams to hidden spring creeks you are sure to have and experience to remember. I would fish with him again any time. B.P Shields New Zealand
