Introducing Queenstown Fly Fishing Guide Chris Dore


Chris Dore in action!Chris Dore is a Queenstown based fly fishing guide and well known New Zealand fly fishing personality.

He is a member of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association and in 2005 became one of the first New Zealanders to successfully pass the internationally recognised, Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructors examination.

Chris specialises in fly fishing tuition, and guided sight fishing opportunities upon the unparalleled trout streams of the lower South Island of New Zealand. He believes that "life's too short to not catch fish", and takes a highly instructional, and fun-filled approach to fly fishing.


Chris, thanks for unflinchingly putting in the hard yards and showing a couple novices some amazing trophy trout fly fishing and stunning New Zealand scenery.  Your optimism is both contagious and relentless - I'm convinced the fish had no choice but to materialize in response to your sheer willpower…and not just that - you MADE them eat as well!  I truly hope we get to fish with you again.  You are the gold standard, in my opinion.  It's no surprise your season is booked before it even start
