New Zealand provides world class trout fishing and there are simply so many different locations that it becomes mind boggling – particularly for those with limited fly fishing time.
Thus we have selected what we believe to be the best options in terms of travel, amenity, guides and the most important – fly fishing options. But more importantly we want you to come fly fish with us and go away knowing that you have made some good mates with the Aussies.
Thus we would like to introduce you to the many fly fishing opportunities of the South Island. It provides the perfect climate to indulge in the many activities available. The time of year to consider is December to March. We take care to find the nicest places for you to stay and these usually have the nicest people who will treat you as friends during your stay.

So where do we go?
There are a number of options that range from the Otago area where we fish the fabulous Lake Benmore convergence or the world famous Ahuriri River down further south to the Southlands. Of course there is much more further north it’s just that we love these areas for the outstanding sight fishing opportunities and consistent weather.
Wherever we go we usually base ourselves in one of the many self-catering houses that are available (the Kiwis call them Baches or in some cases “Wee Cribs”). This is a much more personal way of experiencing New Zealand than most experience.
Thus I suggest that you simply ask what will suit you best. That way we can find the best option depending on the many variables that come with your travel opportunities.t you are well informed about embarking on a trip of a lifetime downunder.
