Butch was a great host, he's laid back and great story teller. His knowledge of fishing for bones in the lagoon is second to none. We combined bone fishing with a little sight seeing and history of the lagoon and island. Butch provided a great lunch and best of all my wife who's not interested in fishing had a fantastic...

Butch is an easy going friendly guide who enjoys fishing as much as the people he guides. A good lunch and lots of stories make for a great day on this superb lagoon.

Butch is the best fly fishing guide on the island! He has the most experience as a guide on the island (17 years compared to just a handful of years that the others have) and his price was great (have the price of the other guides on the island) because he is guiding for the love of it and not...

Butch was fantastic. He wades the flats only. Even though I don't fly fish and only spin fish Butch was happy to help me work out what the Bones might go for and with which technique. My partner is the fly fisherman and Butch was fantastic with him. If he thought the day wasn't perfect for sight fishing he wouldn't... More

We went for a day fishing last April when staying in Aitutaki on our honeymoon. Butch was a great guide and gave lots of tips for the novice fly fisher. Whilst we didn't hook in all day, his knowledge of the area and fishing was fantastic. When we next come to Aitutaki we definately would go out for another try... More

Hi I have recently spent 10 days with my wife at Aitutaki. I,m a keen and experiance fresh water fly fisherman and having never fished for bonefish before, I contacted Butch and organised a day with him on my first full day, in the hope of not necessarily catching one, but more learning enough to set me up so I...

Spent two weeks fishing Aitutaki for gamefish and while I didn't employ Butch I stayed with 2 guys who did and I had a friendly day out with him. This guy lives for catching bonefish and is an international guru in the area. The Aitutaki bones have ( sadly ) been netted at over twice the world record on fly... More
