International Trips

Goulburn Valley Fly Fishing has been running international trips since 1999 with destinations across the globe including Argentina, Canada, New Zealand, USA and Venezuela.

Over the years we have whittled down the trips to three that represent the best fly fishing for trout available.

They are:

SCHEDULED TO RUN WITH GENEROUS DEFERMENT OPTIONS SHOULD AUSTRALIANS BE UNABLE TO TRAVEL TO NZ IN EARLY 2021.


POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO COVID-19.


Our New Zealand trips are for fly fishers of any experience level, with the only expectation being that you have a base level of fitness that allows you to walk the riverbanks. Book with a friend and we tailor the pace completely to the needs of you and your fishing partner.

Nearly all the fishing is with dry flies to large sighted brown trout. At $4,590 AUD (approx $3,000 USD); this is by far our most popular trip and represents tremendous value for a week of fully guided fishing on the South Island of New Zealand.

Our Idaho and Montana trip is an amazing journey to a destination where fly fishing is seen as a part of everyday life. Experience tremendous insect hatches and ‘match the hatch fishing’, while wading and floating through some of the prettiest country on earth.

See Yellowstone National Park, walk the streets of a genuine ghost town, and  visit the Battlefield of the Little Bighorn where Custer and the 7th Cavalry fell to Sioux warriors in that most famous of battles.

This trips is suitable for fly fishers of any skill level, with the sheer number of fish meaning that most beginners return to Australia having caught good numbers of trout.

Comfortable accommodation rounds off what is a very attractive package that is often booked by husband/wife pairings or groups of fishing mates.

Last, but by no means least, is our Patagonia trip to Argentina. This is a five star experience to one of the best lodges in South America. Experience fine dining, amazing fishing, superb lodging, and the sort of hospitality only available at the very best of lodges.
