THE EXPERIENCE YOU’RE LOOKING FOR
Fly Fishing New Zealand
The fly fishing you’ve been searching for
Considered one of the best locations for fly fishing in New Zealand, the Waiau River is one-of-a-kind. Bordering Fiordland National Park in New Zealand’s South Island, the Waiau is teeming with Brown and Rainbow Trout. The river combines low fishing pressure with extraordinary Mayfly hatches for a fly fishing experience that’s truly world-class yet often underrated. A larger waterway; our highly experienced guides break the Waiau down and fish it like a small river. We know the Waiau like the back of our hands, and trout here are anything but hook-shy!
Dotted with islands, beaches and eddies that are impossible to reach on foot, we use custom-built boats to navigate to the river’s best fishing spots, sometimes fishing from the boat drift-style if the client wishes. Don’t be put off by the use of the jet boat – trout on the Waiau are forgiving and settle fast once the boat has moved through. These boats are by far the superior method of maneuvering around this river.
This is a great fit for anglers looking for an outstanding New Zealand trout fishing adventure and particularly those who aren’t able to walk as far as they used to. It’s also a perfect river for those just getting to know fly fishing – our guides are friendly and patient.
