Drift / Float Fishing in Wanaka

Driftfishing on the gin clear waters of this beautiful part of the South Island has to be seen to be believed.  On our float trips we can easily sight trout , pull up into an eddy and reel in a New Zealand brown or rainbow trout. 

We can fly fish from the raft as we drift as well as stopping frequently and wading from the shore.  This gives us the best of both worlds.
