Gordon "Gordy" Watson
Gordon was born and raised in Glenorchy and has a long-standing family history in the area
dating back 6 generations.
“my granddad is a bit of a legend around here , he was a hunting and fishing guide , he
never even advertised people just heard about him and he got the work”
Growing up in a place like Glenorchy gave Gordon the opportunity to hone skills in the
backcountry. Whether it be hunting a weary stag, climbing some of New Zealand’s largest
peaks or landing a monster trout Gordon has an extensive skill set suited for the
New Zealand outdoors.
“I always looked up to my granddad I wanted to do the things he had done, he had a life
people dream of, he said I was teethed on a fly rod so I guess I got a good start”
Gordon has been fishing all his life and accumulated a vast amount of knowledge of the
local rivers and fishing conditions. Gordon’s extensive knowledge of the Backcountry Rivers
in our area, exceptional fitness level and cunning guiding tactics make him an excellent
choice as guide for your New Zealand fishing experience.
“I like to fish all day, sleep then fish again. Doing overnight trips on our rivers is a
experience people never forget”
