Guided Fly Fishing Trip from Wanaka. In New Zealand we focus on making the most of the abundant clear water and sight-fishing for trout, 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!

We will target brown and rainbow trout with upstream dry fly and nymph methods, targeting feeding fish in clear water. 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 stunning trout,

Our day will set off from your accomodation in Wanaka around 8am, from there we will head towards the best option of water for the day to suit the conditions. Generally we will be driving between 1-2 hours and will be kitted up and on the water by 10am. Depending on the water we will be fishing and your fitness level we could be walking upstream between 2-5km during the day and back again so be prepared for a good day on your feet. We would hope to be back at your accommodation around 6-7pm, or earlier depending on your preferences.

We will be targeting fish in the average size range of 3-6lb with the possibility of coming across much larger fish. It is important to understand that fishing in New Zealand will probably be some of the most challenging you will encounter in the world and your skill execution will most likely decide how successful your day will be. Therefore it is important to practice your casting before your trip and if you have never fly fished before, much of our morning will be focusing on learning the basics before we get into actual ‘fishing’.

Additional options for a days fishing is include Helicopter or Jet boat access into backcountry rivers, this is a true wilderness experience that will get you into those more remote areas, if this interests you I can arrange a quote from one of the local transport providers.
