Dates for our 2022 New Zealand trips have been listed and we are taking bookings now.
We have been running these fully licensed trips for over twenty years and they offer some of the best fly fishing in New Zealand at a terrific price ($4,700 per person). Because of this, most available spots go to returning clients each year, with 2022 marking 22 years for one group and 16 years for another.
With international travel unlikely to resume anytime soon, we have put together a list of mainland offerings to give frustrated Australian fly fishers an exciting local trip right here at home.
The first two, Goulburn Adventure and the Tailrace Grand Slam, are perfect New Zealand trip replacements for those looking for an alternate week-long trip here in Australia. Please take a close look at these offerings if you are searching for a quality fishing adventure in Oz this season.
Aside from the aforementioned trips, there are packages to suit all experience levels and if you can’t find a trip or date that suits, please reach out and we will put together something to meet your specific needs.

If you’re an Australian fly fisher and you haven’t yet fished the Goulburn River in Victoria from one of our drift boats, then you are missing out on one of the best fly fishing experiences on the mainland.
This trip was designed to give participants, especially those from interstate, a great introduction to the region, while drifting more than sixty kilometres of this wonderful river with some of the most experienced guides in the country.
Our Tailrace Grand Slam Trip is for fly fishers looking for an added element of adventure this season. Five nights and five very full days of drift boat fly fishing on three of the Australia’s best fly fishing rivers. A great price and small group sizes make this an attractive week away for all fly fishers. Set dates are listed but this trip can be run at anytime for those with a group of four or six anglers.
Drift Boat Fly Fishing on the Goulburn River is a great early season / springtime option. It starts off with streamers, small nymphs and a few midges. As October rolls on we have lots of caddis and mayfly, with flying ants also appearing by mid-month and larger bugs by November. Spoil yourself and go solo or bring a mate and split the cost. 1-2 anglers per boat. Multiple boats available to cater to groups of up to eight.
Beginners Workshops will be running most weekends from now until Christmas. At just $390 per person for the two full days of instruction, and including use of all gear and lunch both days, this is an outstanding way to get into the sport of fly fishing with participants capable of fishing independently by the end of the weekend.
