"Dean provides a relaxed guiding service in the South Island of NZ. I have been guided by him on an annual basis for at least 8 years now and intend to keep doing so until I pop my clogs. He has an incredible ability to spot fish in the rivers and streams that we visit. His knowledge regarding fishing is vast and he shares it generously.
The after fishing socialising and post mortems are good fun too as well as being instructive. In short, being guided by Dean is a fantastic way to recharge one's batteries in the splendour of the rural and wilderness areas of New Zealand."
Nigel Harwood Dunedin NZ
"Dean is the most knowledgeable, conscientious, and understanding Guide I have ever fished with. His spotting ability is amazing."

"We look forward to many more "priceless" moments with you over the coming years. Your fishing buddies."

"When you fish with Dean Whaanga, you become so immersed into the area and culture that you begin to believe that you live there, not just visiting." Kay L Kontour
"The spectacular rivers, scenery and tremendous fish that I caught made for a wonderful experience. Thanks so very much."
"I learned more about the trout than I have in 65 years of fishing, how I wish I had met you many years ago, you would have changed my whole fishing life..."
"We will be returning in 2 years and I will look forward to seeing you and fishing with you again. I will recommend you to anyone I meet planning a trip to NZ, all the best."
