Highly recommend fly fishing with Wanaka Fly Fishing Academy. My wife and I (a relative novice and a complete novice) caught multiple and large fish and had a wonderful experience in the beautiful countryside. Large river fishing one day with more brown trout than I can ever recall seeing (or catching!) and small back country river fishing the next - more challenging, but really great fun and rewarding. Ian and Craig certainly knows their stuff and where the fish are likely to be feeding. Not only that, but they are great company, so the days were enjoyable on many fronts. Will definitely be back. ” — Chris B, Hong Kong

I came to New Zealand with all the latest fly fishing gear but having never caught a trout on it and very little ability to cast a fly. After some excellent fly casting and general fishing tuition, Ian and Craig thought me ready for the water. I had the greatest holiday in memory, both learning new skills, and tramping through pristine areas of New Zealand catching a bag of fish (see picture of 7lb brown), and left with the ability to put a fly fairly close to where it needed to be put. This was all a consequence of their patience and guidance and I will recommend Wanaka Fly Fishing Academy to any of my friends that are considering a NZ fly fishing adventure. ” — Rod G, Sydney
