The Fly Fishing Dream

Have you been dreaming about sneaking in a day of fishing on the river, but keep putting it off due to lack of inspiration or no time?

You Have?!

Then come join us on the North Island’s beautiful Rangitikei River. Imagine you are there, casting your line into likely looking spots, a healthy river teeming with life.

Does the Experienced Fisherman Want More?

As an experienced fisherman, you do not need someone telling you how to fish. Rather, one of our experienced raft guides will take you down the river and stop wherever you think looks best to cast your line. Even try some casting from the raft for those hard to get places.

The Only Sounds

The only sounds you will hear is the water rippling over your feet, the murmur of the river, and your fly going out ahead of you.

What is Included?

Included in the cost for a full day of fishing on the river (for up to three anglers) is a packed lunch/refreshments, a raft as your transportation downstream with one of our experienced rafting guides, a lifejacket, plus a wetsuit and helmet if required.

Get in touch with us now to book a special day for you and friends.

We provide the transportation and gear, catching fish is up to you

Important note. Your Guide will most likely be an experienced raft guide, not a fishing guide. If you would like a trip with a Fishing Guide, then please contact us and we will be only too happy to arrange this for you.

Want a longer trip?

Our Float and Fly Fishing trip can also be run as a multi-day trip, with overnight camping by the river. If you are interested please speak to one of our adventure consultants to customise your trip.

What we Provide:

Raft, guide and river wear. We do not provide fishing equipment or licences

What you need to Bring:

Stafff, gracious, helpful, engaging

Fly Fishing – Bill had his own guide who was excellent – knowledgeable, patient, helpful and an interesting person as well. Bill caught a rainbow trout fly fishing but did switch to a spinningrod later in the day.

Horseback ride – It was supposed to be 2 hours but it turned into more like 3 ½ hours. The guide was wonderful, experienced and did an excellent job of matching rider and horse. Small group (7 including guide). We rode over several farms with incredible views. A chance to run if I wanted, which I did. I was pleased to discover I rememberedchow to ride and I wasn’t sore the next day

With the day lost because of travel complications we didn’t get to go rafting, which we would have enjoyed. Did get to hike the canyon wall and back.

Highly recommend this resort can’t say enough positive about our time here.
