New Zealand Fishing Travel

From One of Our Guides

Before heading to New Zealand to fly fish you’ll probably need to spend a bit of time working out where you want to fish, for how long, and how you’ll get there. That’s all pretty standard information and is easy to get – it’s our specialty. Sometimes you have to work in with an existing itinerary, or with fellow travellers. But other times you are free to plan your trip based on the BEST fishing. And that information isn’t always easy to get.

One of the guides we work with in the Nelson area at the top of the South Island has put up a post about the fishing in the Nelson area through late spring – that’s October and November in New Zealand.

Anton has lots of information in this post and it will give you an insight into the kinds of fishing available, and the target species he works with. He talks of trout, but also kahawai and kingfish, two easily caught sea species on the western side of Golden Bay.

Once you’ve made a decision about the kind of fishing you want and the area you want to fish in call or email Anton or us here at New Zealand Fishing Lodges, and we’ll fit you out with some great fishing and excellent places to stay. We can also provide your rental vehicle and info on further travel throughout New Zealand.
