Guided Fly Fishing

New Zealand's South Island offers a premier trout fishery. The beauty of the natural landscape and the unsurpassed quality of fish whether they be from spectacular stillwater lakes, high country freestone rivers or storybook spring creeks. Adam and Kristina specialise in fishing with all levels of fly angling experience; whether you've never picked up a fly rod before and just want to give it a go, to the seasoned pro. We look forward to sharing this small slice of fishing paradise with you.

The formal trout season runs from October to April, providing you with a wide range of fly fishing options, exploring various fly fishing tactics. 

 
 

full day trip; 1-2 Anglers $800 per day

Your day will start with courtesy 4WD pick up from your accommodation or prearranged pick up point within the Central Otago area - Queenstown, Wanaka, Cromwell and the vicinity. We'll drive up to 2 hours each way to the guide's chosen fishing water for the day, spending approximately 8 hours on the water including:

  • full professional guidance

  • wholesome lunch, snacks, water - please bring your reusable water bottle

  • use of quality Hardy fly rods and reels

HALF DAY TRIP/FLY FISHING INTRO; 1-2 ANGLERS $500 HALF DAY

A great option for those short on time, but keen to get a feel for NZ's fly fishing - or just to fill in a few spare hours! Pick up from a prearranged pick up point within the Central Otago area - Queenstown, Wanaka, Cromwell and the vicinity. Heading to a nearby location for some basic fly fishing tuition and spending 2-4 hours on the water with all the same inclusions as a full day, except lunch is excluded - we'll have you back at your drop off in time for lunch.

 

MULTI-DAY MISSION; 1-2 ANGLERS $800 PER DAY

So you want to spend more than a day with Kristina or Adam Royter? Let's get to know each other! Our MISSION is for a minimum of three days. We'll pick up your from your accommodation, prearranged pick up point or Queenstown airport and head straight to our chosen fishing location. All full day inclusions apply for the fishing mission, except that you'll pay for accommodation, breakfast and dinners. These trips are custom tailored depending on the location of the best fishing at the time, so accommodation options will vary - but we'll take care of the details for you.

 

MULTI-DAY CAMPOUT WITH THE ROYTERS; 1-2 ANGLERS $1,100/DAY

This is NZ South Island fishing - true Royter-style! The campout is for a minimum of 1 night (weather dependant) and we take care of everything. We'll pick you up as pre-arranged, and head to our fishing location for the day. At day's end we'll head to set up base-camp, which we'll call home for one or more nights. All meals will be prepared and/or cooked, including freshly pressed espresso coffee in the morning. All camping gear, tents and bedding are provided; just bring your best campfire song playlist! 

*Alcohol not included, but you're welcome to bring or organise some.

HELICOPTER ACCESS; 1-2 ANGLERS FROM $2,500

A chartered helicopter as an access option to some of the South Island's most amazing locations, is an exceptional experience for any angler. Flying in to valleys otherwise only accessible by multi-day walks, whilst enjoying a birds-eye view of this spectacular country, adds to the overall adventure. Helicopter access can be added to any of the above experiences including transport to/from the airport hanger as required. Helicopter services are weather dependant and cannot be guaranteed, and are at the discretion of the operator. Remember though we'll always do our best to provide the next-best option depending on the final decision.
