    What to Expect
    Combine the majestic beauty of a remote Fiordland New Zealand river, a bountiful supply of trout and the thrill of a jet boat ride, and you have a Fiordland fishing trip… Unforgettable fun for the whole family. Float down the mighty Waiau River through pristine Fiordland National Park scenery tempting hungry trout from our purpose built jetboat. 

    Spin fishing for the novice angler and people who haven’t spin or fly fished before — fun fishing experiences on Waiau River, which winds through the unparalleled beauty of Fiordland’s rain forest, and perfect for families, couples or anyone just wanting to give it a go.

    Just about anyone will enjoy a spin fishing trip from pre-school children to people whose school days are a very distant memory.

    Expert flyfishing guide Dion combined amazing jetboat handling with superb trout spotting skills enabling us to cast to and catch a day long succession of rainbow and brown trout to 6.5 lbs, mostly on dry flies. Highly recommended!!
