Trout Scout Guiding New Zealand

Hello and welcome! My name is Shelen Scout Boyes, and I am a fly fishing guide based in Queenstown, New Zealand, on the South Island. With over 8 years of fly fishing experience, I provide top-level service to my clients, offering exceptional guided fly fishing adventures in one of the most incredible locations on this planet.

I offer a variety of services, including full-day, multi-day, and overnight backcountry trips, tailored to meet the preferences of my clients.

Come and check off a bucket list adventure by exploring the incredible New Zealand watersheds and experiencing phenomenal trout fishing with a fly rod in hand, guided by me. Let's see what's out there!

Fly Fishing Services




A full day of guiding which would include pick-up and drop-off, river-side catered lunch and an hour of casting instruction before the fishing began.



Everything included in a full-days fishing but with multiple days of opportunities to catch elusive New Zealand trout.



An multi-day, overnight backcountry fly fishing trip is on just about any fly fisherman's bucket list. You can either hike in by foot or utilize a helicopter to fly into more remote rivers of the South Island. This would optomize fishing time, create more opporunities for larger fish encounters and preview some of the most remote and stunning scenery.

“Shelen was an extraordinary teacher! Her instructions were precise so on a full day trip we managed to sight multiple trout and hook +6 of them. I’ve learned so much about how to locate trout, choose a proper fly, casting and so on, but also I had a great time, with some awesome memories that will last a lifetime!”
