What you'll do

​The world-renowned destination of Queenstown is home to incredible fly fishing amongst New Zealand's most spectacular scenery.
This excursion is for experienced anglers who would like to experience fly-fishing in New Zealand with a professional guide.

Note, the price of $799 on this experience is for one person - however you are able to bring one other angler with you should you wish, at no extra cost, so the price is for your group of one or two persons.
Your day will be exclusively your party with a maximum of two of you.
I will pick you up nice and early as we'll have a minimum of one hour's travel to get to some local waters that are suitable for the day. These might be the Rees, Mataura, Oreti or many other fine fly fishing locations.

We normally spend 6-7 hours on the water, but you have me exclusively so I can work in with your timing and requirements. Lunch will be included.

If you have not brought your own rod or waders please let me know as I can provide them (no extra charge).
