Bay of Many Coves Resort, sea fishing lodge New Zealand

We represent New Zealand’s best luxury fishing lodges to the leisure concierge and luxury tour market. These include fly fishing lodges, coastal fishing resorts and luxury charters.

We offer expert local knowledge and a wealth of experience in the New Zealand travel industry.

There are world-class fishing lodges in both the North Island and South Island of New Zealand. These offer their guests amazing fishing for brown trout, rainbow trout and Pacific (chinook) salmon. The trout fishing is known to be some of the best in the world with ‘sighted fishing’ available throughout the country’s rivers and stream. This is the pinnacle of fly fishing where, because of the extreme water clarity, the fisherman is able to cast to an individual trout. This is sometimes known as ‘sight and stalk’ fishing as well.

We also work in the extended luxury New Zealand travel market, representing New Zealand’s most desirable luxury lodge stays and getaways. Our two websites, Wilderness New Zealand and New Zealand Fishing Lodges, detail many of the places and services we offer. Although aimed at the luxury leisure traveller both sites are also a great resource for you, as a luxury leisure booking agent, to see the standard and style of the properties we represent.

  • Luxury boutique
  • Golf stays
  • Fishing lodges
  • Wilderness lodges
  • High-end urban escapes
  • Coastal and island resorts
  • Luxury cruises

If you have high-end clients coming to New Zealand to fish we can help get the best luxury accommodation, fishing, sightseeing and transfers to suit. We can advise the most suitable places for high profile clients and celebrities who require discretion, anonymity and security when they travel. We also have a number of properties that are available for exclusive bookings.
