Back Country Trout

The owner says

If you are looking for a fly fishing vacation of a lifetime, you will love the Central South Island of New Zealand. Allow Kevin Payne, a registered New Zealand professional fishing guide to take you on a guided experience specializing in sighted flyfishing for wild brown and rainbow trout. You will love the combination of large trout, un-crowded rivers and striking scenery. The Kiwi style of spotting and stalking wild rainbow and brown trout is what makes your fishing experience here exciting, challenging and unique. Being guided is the best way to maximize your fishing time while in the South Island.
Your guide, Kevin, specializes in spotting fish with a trained eye and puts you in the best position to try and fool these crafty trout with nymphs and dry flies. We can cater to all skill levels from children and novices through advanced casters.
This region boasts a mix of spring creeks, freestone rivers and large braided glacial rivers. We are fortunate to be able to access our local back country rivers by 4WD without the need, or extra expense, of a helicopter, however taking a chopper is an option if preferred. Most days do involve some walking so being mobile is an advantage.
