This trip starts and ends in Melbourne, and you will be treated to 4 days of fly fishing from both the bank and our drift boats, with many of our core guides from the past 25 years being available for what will become a regular offering.

We will collect you from a meeting point in the C.B.D. or airport, and then hit the road destined for Khancoban. Those wishing to drive themselves are welcome to do so.

Arriving that first evening, there will be plenty of time to prepare gear and get ready for what will be four very full days of fishing on some of Australia’s best rivers.

With our drift boats and rafts we will be able to fish the Swampy, Mitta Mitta and Tumut rivers, with the former located a short stroll from the accommodation, and the others being within comfortable day trip distance. David, Geoff, Antony and Bo will all have their boats meaning that up to eight anglers per day can drift each day.

At this time of year there is also great wade fishing on all local streams. In fact, the aforementioned rivers should all have superb walk/wade/fish options with lower water conditions and insect hatches. This is also the best time of the year for stable/mild weather.

Accommodation will be at Queen’s Cottages or accommodation of a similar standard. It is very comfortable and close to the fishing. The quoted price is based on twin share of rooms with your fishing partner.

On the fishing front we will provide you with some of our most experienced guides, a drift boat per pair, all meals, flies and transport; as well as the use of any gear; if required. Our team have all guided extensively in the area for the past 20+ years and know the region intimately.

There are countless nearby locations to fish; from the Swampy, Tumut and Mitta Mitta tailwaters, to the rivers and streams around Jindabyne and Eucumbene and the greater Snowy Mountain region. Simply put. It would take several lifetimes to fish it all.

This trip not only represents a great chance to fish these iconic rivers at one of the peak times of the year, but also the opportunity to advance your skills, with some of our best guides and instructors with you for the duration. As such, these trips are also suitable for pairs of beginner fly fishers who wish to significantly lessen the  learning curve associated with becoming a proficient fly fisher.

After four to five days on the water with our instructors, even beginners will go away having caught fish and being able to fly fish independently.
