Hit the river running with a full day adventure softbaiting/spin fishing some of Southland & Otago’s hot spots. Soft-plastic fresh water fishing has boomed in the past 5 years, so if you’re still trying to work it all out book a trip and arm yourself with the all the best techniques and gear to tackle those beasty browns and rainbows!

Upon departure from the hotel you will be escorted for a 1-2 hr drive through some of New Zealand’s most pristine scenery to some of the most sought-after fishing spots in the world. High country rivers and streams are in abundance in the area and getting there is no problem with one of our 4WDs.

If boats are not your thing then this is a great alternative option for a full or half day out. Learn some new techniques in some of the world’s finest trout fisheries. Every step of the way you’ll be guided by our local expert team.
