"I have fished with Tony Murphy and his father Frank for over ten years. I truly love New Zealand and what I love most about the country are the people. They are the most genuine, caring and helpful people I have met. Tony Murphy is such a person. He is an exceptional fishing guide totally knowledgeable about the rivers and what flies the trout should feed on. Whenever asked to recommend a fishing destination in New Zealand, I always recommend Murphys lodge. It is a truly local Kiwi experience. You will catch trout at Murphys."

I have fished in New Zealand many times over the last 20 years both guided and solo. Tony Murphy has regularly guided me and on all occasions we caught good fish. Whilst I, like many, would rather float a dry fly down a run as opposed to a nymph, a number of times Tony urged me to drop a heavy nymph (one of his) down a fast run and we had great results - large, hard fighting rainbow trout! I know Tony as a guide who knows how to fish and how to put you onto fish. He has a great understanding of the 'outdoors' and a good sense of humour ! Also if you want to take a day off from fishing and go hunting for peacock or turkey, then Tony can fix that too. I took two great peacocks one morning with Tony and then switched back to fishing in the afternoon! From a visiting fly fisherman's point of view, Tony is a 'no regrets' fishing guide!
