Central South Island

With more fishing rivers and fisheries than most parts of the world this is one of the ultimate places to get off the land and step into liquid

With a diverse range of waterways from intimidating rivers containing fish of size and power to match to smaller intimate streams of crystal clear water and trout cunning enough to challenge the most experienced anglers. Despite the area being mostly a farming backdrop, the water quality is excellent and there is enough easy public access to keep a busy fly fishing angler satisfied for a lifetime in nearly any weather and river flow. However, the upper reaches will always be the most desirable for fish quality and postcard style backdrop that dreams are made of.
