Cory Scott Fly Fishing

Cory Scott

Eastern Region Eastern Region
Cory grew up fly fishing under the tutelage of his grandfather on the streams of Southland and can recall catching his first trout aged 3, since those early beginnings he has immersed himself in the art of fooling trout on a fly developing into a backcountry addict leaving no stone unturned or no question on what lays beyond the next bend. Cory has been guiding for 18 years which he alternates between his job as a photographer with the two professions developing a symbiotic relationship. Cory has guided everyone from the complete novice to sporting professionals to rock stars and everyone in between, with his professional yet super friendly humorous approach being popular. When it comes to the East Cape/Te Urewera region there is no one that knows this region as intimately as Cory and on any given day he can be found either fishing by the road side or multi days hike back in the mountains that surround his region.

Wellington Wellington
Characterised by the beautiful but extremely rugged Ruahine and Tararua Ranges, the Manawatu region has a myriad of fine trout waters on offer to explore. From large lowland rivers with very high numbers of both rainbow and brown trout to more remote and beautiful small spring-fed or backcountry style streams with more challenging but less fish of much larger size, there is plenty to choose from. These unique places have been Johnny's home waters for nearly 20 years. Contact Johnny today
