Miles Rushmer

New Zealand's #1 provider of trophy trout, Miles has been a professional flyfishing guide for more than 12 years. He has stamped his mark as a premiere trophy trout guide, and possibly the leading provider of sight-fished trophy trout in the world today. He is a stalking specialist on small, clear, spring creeks to absolutely monstrous wild brown trout, and lake shoreline flyfishing for trophy rainbows. Based in the North Island's Bay of Plenty. Featuring in Derek Grzelewski's second book Trout Bohemia, and Nick Reygearts motion movie Leviathan, Miles Rushmer Guiding is simply in the business of making flyfishing trophy dreams come true. The nature of it is more likened to a wildlife encounter...up-close and personal with the true beasts of NZ's freshwater domain. His latest guided venture is "The Full House" - targeting both a trophy 10lb + brown and rainbow in the same day - unique across the planet.
