Join us for an amazing fly fishing road trip across the best trout fishing regions of mainland Australia, fishing from both the bank and our drift boats.
The ‘Guide’s Road Trip‘ started out as an idea between a close knit group of friends/guides here at GVFFC who’ve fished together for the past 25 years. The concept was to offer a trip that closely resembles what we do when we get time off. That is, hit the open road with rods, cameras, guitars and drift boats; and fish whatever we find along the way.
From all those late night discussions around the campfire, in airports and on the river; the road trip concept was formed. A completely customisable trip of 2-7 day’s duration for 1-14 people, with a mix of drift boats and/or wade fishing on offer.
You simply tell us your dates, and we do the rest. We will pick you up and drop you off from a predetermined point, and organise the fishing, gear, meals, accommodation and transport. You simply show up and fish.
We will collect you from a meeting point in the C.B.D., airport, or wherever you choose; and then hit the road destined for the best fishing available at the time.
With our drift boats we will be able to fish any of the best tailwaters of south-east Australia including the Goulburn, Mitta Mitta, Swampy and Tumut rivers, as well as many other lakes. There is also great wade fishing on a wide variety of smaller streams on offer.
Accommodation will be subject to arrangement, and we can do everything from streamside camping up in the mountains for those who wish to be right on the water and away from it all; to three to four star motel/home-stay lodging in nearby towns. Or a mixture of both.
On the fishing front we will provide you with our most experienced guides, a drift boat, all meals, flies and transport; as well as the use of any gear. Our team have all guided extensively in the area for the past 20+ years and know the region intimately.
This trip will ensure that you make the most of your precious leisure time. While you could lock into one specific area and hope that the fishing is good at the time that you’ll be there, the Guide’s Road Trip format allows us to guarantee you the best opportunities for success at any given time. Being able to move at will and having access to fishing reports from our friends and guides across Victoria/New South Wales, we simply go to wherever the fishing is best.
This trip not only represents a great chance to fish many of Australia’s iconic trout rivers, but also the opportunity to advance your skills, with some of our best guides and instructors at your shoulder. As such, these trips are suitable for all fly fishers regardless of experience level.
All of our guides are mature travel companions, aged between 32 – 75. They are good company, well-traveled, and have worked in the fly fishing industry, both here and abroad, for over twenty years.
