Come with me on a real, authentic kiwi experience, fly fishing spectacular water and hunting down some big wily trout amongst magnificent scenery!
I provide an affordable day of private guiding and don’t hold back on the quality, ensuring you have the best experience possible. Im here to help you find the fish and introduce you to the fishing methods used to catch them in NZ, from dry fly to nymphing and anything else in-between!
What to expect:
In New Zealand we focus on making the most of the abundant clear water and sight-fishing for trout, only casting once a fish is spotted, which is more akin to ‘trout-hunting’. Sight fishing is not easy but the most rewarding of all and therefore I can introduce you to its main aspects and help you be confident and competent to catch that fish of a lifetime!
Depending on weather and conditions we may visit different rivers and areas ranging from mountainous valleys surrounded by forest to vast tussock plains. All locations have spectacular landscape, beautiful water and nice fish
My guided days include transport and all fishing gear and lunch. Waders can be hired for an additional $50 p/day (I never wear them, wet wading is the way to go!)
Fishing licence is to be bought separately at NZ$20 for 24 hours
Full Day: NZ$600 for 8-10 hours fishing including transport (Additional angler $100)
Half Day: NZ$300 for 4-5 hours fishing in a local river/lake within 1 hours drive from Wanaka (Additional angler $70)
