The Raised Hackle Fly Fishing Adventures
My name is John Baker and I have the privilege of being a professional
fly fishing guide in one of the most beautiful and highly regarded trout
fishing regions in the world, Turangi ( New Zealand) .The trout capital of
the world, situated at the southern end of lake Taupo,
I grew up in Victoria Australia, and started fly fishing at a young age of
nine years, in the following years, after reading books on fly fishing New
Zealand waters; it was time to see it for myself. So here I am in a country
I will never leave. I started working in my trade as a mechanical fitter but
on my days off, I was out on all rivers you can imagine. Landing trout of
all sizes largest being 13lb Brown out of the Hydro Pool (Tongariro River) I
also worked in the South Island, again exploring rivers. What a place to be,
another part of New Zealand, also another world.
Deciding to leave my trade I worked in a sports shop for a number of years
during such time
An opportunity arose to purchase a fly fishing shop on the banks of the
famous Tongariro River. So a dream to work at what I love came true, so
here I am now a professional Trout Fishing Guide. Doing what I love most.
