Destinations | New Zealand

New Zealand’s reputation as one of the greatest brown and rainbow trout fisheries on the planet is well deserved. International fly-fishing enthusiasts swarm to specialist lodges during the peak season of December to March to fish the gin clear waters and experience some of the best sight casting imaginable. NZ’s fishing guides pride themselves as being a world class fraternity of experts whose skills and knowledge have been honed and learned by thousands of hours on the water watching the feeding habits and behaviour of their targets. Ten pound trout in skinny streams are a real possibility. Heli-fishing, rafting and trekking in with your guide are all popular forms of working the lakes, rivers and streams. The lodges are extremely comfortable with excellent food and service delivered by attentive staff who are there to look after all your needs.
