Scott Slater - New Zealand Fly Fishing Guide

Scotty’s well known among his friends and clients as a fish whisperer. If it has fins, then he’ll find a way to catch it on the fly, or help someone else catch it!

He started his fly fishing journey at the age of 8 and he was hooked….

He is a master fly tier and passionate fly fisherman who brings over twenty five years of fly fishing experience, along with his past life as a professional aquatic ecologist, to the Hurley’s Fly Fishing guide team.

He is a well traveled angler and guide, having spent many years guiding remote fly fishing trips in the Alaskan wilderness and on the world famous gold medal waters of the Gunnison Gorge in Colorado during the NZ off-season.

When it comes to guiding, Scotty has a reputation for being humble, professional, skilled, passionate and accommodating. His childish enthusiasm for all things fishy inevitably infects all those around him.

Scotty looks forward to the privilege of sharing his passion for Southland’s world class fly fishing with you!
