Dylan Clayton grew up in the small farming community of Reporoa, New Zealand since the age of 7. When he was 8yrs old he went on his first big hunting adventure into the rugged hills of the Tararua ranges and witnessed his first stag being shot. From that day on there was no looking back, he was going to be a hunter! Now 23 years old, Dylan has incredible hunting experience for a young man, and can’t wait to help guide you on a New Zealand hunt.

Chris Brennan has lived in the wonderful fishing region of Taupo almost all his life. At the tender age of 17 he began full time guiding and knows all the habits of the brown and rainbow trout, and where to find them. His reputation is now somewhat that of a fishing guru. Having built respected relationships with many local landowners in the area he has access to some special out of the way fishing spots on our streams, rivers and lakes. Chris fits our mould of genuine good guys and his passion for fishing, hunting and sharing a memorable experience with his guests will ensure your time with him is worthwhile.
