Do you only have limited time but still want to experience some of New Zealand’s wild and largely unspoiled wilderness fishing? Then a full-day guided fly fishing trip is an excellent option. Your adventure starts with a courtesy 4WD pickup from your accommodation in Christchurch. We’ll drive up to 2 hours to where you can experience sight fishing for New Zealand’s world-renowned brown and rainbow trout in remote gin-clear water and amongst breath-taking scenery. You will spend a full day on the water and return to your accommodation in time for dinner. Included in your drive-in/drive-out package are: wholesome lunches, drinks and the use of top-quality Sage rods and Simms waders and boots.
This popular NZ fishing trip is perfect for the adventurous angler wanting to get off the beaten track and maximise their fishing opportunities by exploring a variety of premium fishing waters. We base ourselves in small country towns close to the good fishing, or on the river. Being mobile allows us to be flexible and fish the best locations each day based on river and weather conditions. Accommodation varies to suit your budget. Your NZ fishing guide custom-builds each package which can include camping out beside the river, motels, camp ground cabins, cottages or B&Bs. (Accommodation expenses for yourself and the guide are additional to fishing trip rates). Breakfasts, wholesome lunches, drinks and all top-quality fishing tackle including boots and waders are provided.
These 2- to 4-day excursions allow you to hike deep into the back country and access some of the most remote, scenic and unspoiled headwater fisheries.

Crystal-clear water, sight fishing for big browns and just being part of nature is what this package is all about. This fishing trip is suitable for the adventurous and physically fit angler who isn’t daunted by the thought of leaving home comforts behind. Clients need to be physically fit to hike approximately 10km a day with a fully laden pack. All meals and top-quality camping equipment including packs, tents and sleeping bags are provided.
