“Nigel & Myriam. Howdy.  Bart and I are still telling stories of the days in the canyons. Great fishing! We had an amazing time!  You were such a gracious host.

This is even more appreciated given the loss of your dear friend and the professionalism you continued with. Worth every penny.

You will see us again, mate. Terry”

“What a truly awesome experience. I truly enjoyed my stay and getting to know your family. What a great time hunting and even a day skiing. A gorgeous cottage and surroundings. Thanks for including me in your family dinners. You have great kids with a great future due to some awesome parents. It was, and will be life changing! Marsha and I will be back and continue our friendship with your family. Thanks again for a life changing experience!”

your Guides

As professional guides in the industry since the late 80's, Nigel & Myriam absolutely love what they do! To them, that is passing on the holiday of a lifetime to guests that often become new friends.


The Birt's and their guide team are members of the official New Zealand Professional Fishing & Hunting Guides associations (N.Z.P.F.G.A. & N.Z.P.H.G.A.), and Nigel has also served as an association executive board member.


Backcountry New Zealand Hunting and Fishing Guides belong to the National Tourism Industry Aotearoa (TIANZ) and Tourism New Zealand (TNZ). They operate under industry standard and audited Health & Safety systems, holding appropriate Department of Conservation (DOC) concessions along with insurances. Quality equipment is important to them for your experience.

What to Pack

In order to maximise your New Zealand hunting trip or fly-fishing experience, Nigel & Myriam ensure that you either bring with you the appropriate clothing & equipment, or they provide it as part of your tour.


Weather in New Zealand is ever changing and is a key element in planning a hunting trip or fly-fishing day. All Backcountry New Zealand guides consistently use a layering clothing system to manage the temperature changes.
