The Wilderness Fly Fishing experience, FIORDLAND

Filed under: Fishing Diary — Tags: , , , , , , , — Henare @ 11:25 am

Robb Meyers from Colorado Springs came out to NZ and was looking for a fishing experience that would see us camping on the side of a river somewhere and casting to fish in some of the clearest water i have ever seen.

Fiordland offers a wilderness experience that will leave you speechless to say the least…

Clear water that offers the fly fisherman the dream of casting to sighted fish.

I hate making excuses, but since xmas 09 we have been flat out busy!!

The Fishing Dairy has lacked evidence of our busyness,  I’ll let the pictures tell a few of the stories of some of the adventures we have been getting into.

This one in particular was with Bob Payne and his family from California. A heli-scenic into Milford Sound and some Fly Fishing on the way. Not a bad way to finish 2009 off and see 2010 in..

The Weather could not have been better, we lifted off at 8.15am from Alpine choppers and headed into Milford Sound via some magic spots, a scenic over dose really!! After a 2 hour boat cruise we flew over lots of dream-water, parked on a mountain over looking Glenorchy and Lake Wakatipu and had some lunch, played some guitar, enjoyed the magic views then dopped down onto a river and cast and caught some local trout. First time on a fly Rod for both Nev & Jenny and they both got fish to the net!! That is awesome!!! Flew back to Queenstown and had a speights on the way and landed at 6.15pm.

That was Valentines Day 2009, a day to remember for sure!! Take a look at the photos and see for yourself, every day is a valentines day we reckon………….

Milford sound, Fiordland National Park….. And fishing in between….

Filed under: Fishing Diary — Tags: , , , , — Henare @ 2:15 pm

Queenstown is right on the doorstep of one of the worlds largest World Heritage Areas. Fiordland National Park is on the list of places to see when you visit New Zealand. Photographs don’t do the place justice, you have to see it for yourself to beleive it and more so feel it. If you have travelled from the other side of the world and your time is limited, let us organise a day that will feel like a week long  journey of experiences and leave you thinking that it was all just a dream…….

We even caught some Rainbow Trout on the way. Now that is a day that is hard to forget!!

If you ever talk to Anthony and Angela Hamilton or Leon and Fiona Christianakis  or Bruce and I then we will tell you how it was…..


Fiordland, Dream-waters
