New Zealand - Southland Guided Week Adventure

Availability: In stock


Flying directly in and out of Queenstown mainly chasing browns in streams, and staying at Hurley House in Lumsden, almost a sheep paddock from the world renowned Oreti River, the place is, well perfect! Generally fishing easier walking streams like the Mataura and Wakaia Rivers, are abundant with fish in the 3-5lb category, whilst the larger waters such as the Oreti hold fish in the 6-10lb range. The bigger rivers can sometimes require a bit more skill and walking at times, but almost every fish is sight cast, and to me that is what fly fishing New Zealand is all about. The ‘Lodge’ is a clean twin share environment and great for a fishing trip. It is a great first time ‘NZeder’, where you will get plenty of opportunities at good quality fish in accessible water, the rest is up to you!

I guess two main differences between our trips and others are that we use local Kiwi guides, Derek Grezlewski and Brendan Shields, local accommodation, and locally cooked meals, which literally involves the entire community. The other is we accompany you on these adventures as hosts. We have constantly fished the many rivers and lakes in the area over many years, and makes certain your trip is the best it can be.

Arriving and leaving on a Sunday, so you get the full 6 days at least, plus some amazing evening hatches that the hosts can take you to when their off the clock! All trips include at least 3 days with Kiwi guides that are members of the NZPGA, and 3 days with your HFFA host.

Prices include everything except airfares and licence.. we might even throw in a few beers too!!

last week of the season, weather foul, fishing ff fantastic Southland Review by Rosscoe
Reflecting upon the week I had based at Lumsden for the last week of April 2015 and thelast week of the season. The weather started out being foul, snowing, cold and wet but given that we were decked out in waders and jackets it didn't really matter. What did matter was the fishing and that Gavin and Derek were able to put us on fish after fish - not all were caught but sure offered a lot of sport. Later in the week the weather improved . Gavins hideaway at Lumsden was cosy comfortable, some may say the snoring was a bit loud. I am seriously checking my calender for a return journey in 2016 (Posted on 20/08/2015)
Had excellent trip to Southland, planning next trip to Lake Brunner Review by Professor Mayfly
I had a brilliant week in Southland in March 2013 hosted by Col Hurley and Rick Houghton. They ensured that everything went smoothly from pick-up to drop-off at Queenstown airport. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The local Kiwi guides are masters of their art and delightful company. The fishing, needless to say, was sensational. It was almost all sight fishing with an endless stream of opportunities targeting good fish on dries and nymphs in many different rivers. I enjoyed the trip so much that I've already been on one of the Christmas Island trips and booked to go on a West Coast trip later this year. Excellent value for money, too! (Posted on 5/05/2014)
