The management and well being of the wild fish and their habitat is paramount, as such these elements are continually monitored to ensure sustainability of the resource. The primary species for fly-fishing in New Zealand are rainbow and brown trout with both species often inhabiting the same section of water. The oxygen and nutrient rich alpine streams produce fish that are in strong condition ensuring that setting a hook in the fish really is only half the challenge. Having crystal clear water allows early spotting of the fish however this clarity also means that whilst you can see them, they can see you.

Spot and stalking is the method of choice and by far the most exciting as although it is likely the fish have never been disturbed by humans, great care must be taken on the approach. Anglers often use dry fly, streamer and nymph techniques on the same stretch of water. Trophy fish in excess of 10lb are landed by avid anglers every season. The locations and crystal clear waters make this an unforgettable day out, even if you don't land the big one.
