for unforgettable fly fishing vacations in New Zealand - Aoraki Fly Fishing Guides

Hi there, welcome to Aoraki Fly Fishing. Kevin
We take you to some of the best wild brown and rainbow trout fishing spots to be found in New Zealand.
Fly fishing vacations in local or wilderness waters in New Zealand's Central South Island.

We'll take you to those secret hard to find places!

Aoraki Fly Fishing is based out of Timaru which is only a two hour drive south of Christchurch's International airport. Timaru is a coastal town and the main centre of South Canterbury, a region in the central South Island of New Zealand bounded by the mighty Rakia river to the north, the Waitaki river to the south and stretching from the majestic Southern Alps to the Pacific ocean.

Your guides Kevin Fairbairn and Jason Shortland will work hard to show you the skill and technique needed to get the most out of some of New Zealand's very best fly fishing.

Come and fish with us and let us show you some of the magnificent area in which we live, work and play. Fish amongst towering snow capped mountains, through sheer valleys and on open flood plains or one of the many low land rivers and streams which our region has to offer. We have a mixture of spring creeks, freestone streams, alluvial rivers and still waters all offering their own challenges and fantastic sport. The trout here average 3 - 4 pounds with many larger fish landed each year.

Here at Aoraki Fly Fishing we specialise in the classic kiwi style of clear water sight fishing. Fish are first sighted, then stalked before being tempted with a dry fly or nymph. This is a very exciting and challenging style of fishing which is suited to parties of 1-2 anglers per guide to ensure maximum quality time on the water. The fishing here in New Zealand is considered hard in comparison to most other places, don't expect to catch great numbers of fish but rather large well conditioned fish.

All rivers and streams are accessed by comfortable 4WD vehicle and some walking is involved. We have fishing in our region to suit most levels of fitness. A typical day's fishing starts with angler pick up between 7:30 and 8am and travelling to one of the many rivers and streams the region has to offer with a return time to be arranged between the angler and guide. Travelling time varies but is usually between a 30 - 90 minute drive depending on which waters are to be fished.

We can tailor an unforgettable fishing trip to suit your needs, time and budget. Whether it's a week long High Country Safari staying in luxury lodges or a day trip to one of the local rivers. Get in touch with us via our fly fishing booking & inquiry form and let us put a personalised itinerary together for that fishing trip of a lifetime.
