Hello, my name is Serge.
I am one of the owners of the most proactive and New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association registered fly fishing tours company Charming Creek Adventures Limited.
I have 40 years fishing experience, starting on French rivers with a cane rod. Many years of practice, with my younger siblings under Dad's wing, took me through various fishing technics like bait fishing on the alpine streams through Europe, Spinning with memorable memories in Asian countries, Flyfishing throughout the world, surf casting but also game fishing on the coasts of Australia and New Zealand participating in numerous tournaments.
My passion took me half way around the planet, offering me opportunities to flyfish most of the European countries including:
I also visited other countries, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal, Australia and New Zealand where I arrived 14 years ago with 2 bags and suitcases and of course with my fishing rods!
My fishing destinations then were all the North Island's rivers, and more precisely, around the Taupo region, Rotorua, East Coast. I met wonderful people that gave me the desire to fish more and more. I have since moved down to the South Island (New Zealand) where we have two properties located in the North Canterbury, Hanmer Springs, and also the magnificent West Coast, in Seddonville.
What has been my hobby for so long became my profession when I first started as a guide in the Buller Region, guiding on the most beautiful rivers of the angler's paradise that is the South Island of New Zealand.
My knowledge of the region, the rivers and lakes, the country, the Flora, the Fauna, makes your fishing trip a complete experience that we will tailor for you according to your requirements.
Join us and enjoy a lifetime guided adventure where you will hunt, spot and catch the wild Brown Trout and other species in the Wilderness and Beauty of our country.
