4WD Fly Fishing – I will pick you up from your Queenstown accommodation at a pre-arranged time. From here we will drive for between 1 to 2 hrs to take you to the waterways that will suit you and the weather/river conditions on the day. You will spend the day casting to stalked and sighted fish ranging in size from 3lbs – 5lbs, (20+ inches) always with the possibility of seeing and hooking into much larger fish. The landscapes range from lush green farmland to open tussock lands to mountain beech forests and stunning mountain scenery with spring creeks, freestone rivers, alluvial rivers and alpine lakes to choose between. The day is yours and there is no time limit – unless you have one!

I recommend early starts if you are a serious angler. Early usually means a pick up between 0530 to 0730 (depending on your preference we can leave earlier or later). Leaving early means we have a chance to get to good water and be set up before others do to maximize your time and chances of success.

Heli-Access We have many rivers that are only easily accessible by helicopter from Queenstown or Wanaka so if you prefer we can organize heli fly fishing expeditions to get into remote back country areas. Please note that a NZ full season license and back country stamp may be required for trips of this nature. If you really want to unlock some of the very best fishing in New Zealand, day outings by helicopter can be arranged by talking to your guide and worked to fit in with the best weather during your stay in then area. This allows unparalleled access to the wildest and most remote of streams, some of which may never have been fished by another angler all season. These add-on s will incur an additional expense for the helicopter and landing permits. NB. POA for heli-fishing trips.
