About Your Guide
Richard Mowforth is the head fly fishing guide for the Tongariro River Motel in Turangi. He has over 30 years fishing experience and has been fly fishing the Tongariro River, Taupo and Taranaki regions for more than 10 years. He cherishes his time in freshwater environments and appreciates the connection with the natural environment that fly fishing provides.
Fly fishing has taken Richard Mowforth to many parts of New Zealand that few people, other than fly fishers, would ever see. He enjoys the opportunity to wade up a river, go round the next bend and feel as though he is away from civilisation. His passion is sight fishing for trout, which requires a careful approach and provides great anticipation and thrill.
He particularly enjoys sharing his enthusiasm for the freshwater environment and fly fishing with the clients he guides.
