We are Jay and Cyndy Gusler from Cypress Texas and we vacationed in New Zealand this March ( 2018 ) after finding Glen Dene on the internet.
Most outdoorsman see New Zealand as a paradise for hunting but once they arrive they find the fishing to be the second jewel in the crown of outdoor activity. My wife Cyndy and I went on a wonderful river raft fishing trip organized by Richard and we caught some awesome rainbow trout. Our fishing guide was Greg Dougherty and we found him to be the best fishing guide I have ever used.
I hunted with Glen Dene guide Stacey Thorburn who turned out to be not only an awesome guide but a great person. I didn’t even have to bring my own rifle from the United States. I borrowed Richard’s 7mm Mag and from the pictures below you can see performed jus as we expected.
The country is spectacular. The mountains are rugged if you need to climb.
Accommodations were great and the entire family and team that Richard has put together is fantastic. We enjoyed all the dinners and getting to know the family.
New Zealand and Glen Dene Hunting exceeded my expectations. Both hunting and fishing were outstanding.
