Back Country Trout

If you are looking for a fly fishing vacation of a lifetime, you will love the Central South Island of New Zealand. Allow Kevin Payne, to take you on a guided experience specializing in sighted fly fishing for wild brown and rainbow trout.




The Kiwi style of spotting and stalking wild rainbow & brown trout is what makes your fishing experience here exciting, challenging, and unique.

Being guided is the best way to maximize your fishing time while in the South Island. Your guide, Kevin, specializes in spotting fish with a trained eye and puts you in the best position to try and fool these crafty trout with nymphs and dry flies.

We can cater to all skill levels from children and novices through advanced casters.

This region boasts a mix of spring creeks, freestone rivers and large braided glacial rivers. We make you an itinerary tailored to suit you and your holiday plans,
