“Todd delivered an outstanding fishing experience. The depth of his knowledge was incredible. He got a first timer up to speed very quickly who then landed the fish of the day. Can't wait to get back there.”

Fly fishing in Queenstown New Zealand

New Zealand Fly fishing is regarded as the pinnacle of sight fishing for wild brown and rainbow trout. The rivers in the Southern lakes region are nothing short of spectacular, boasting gin-clear waters. 

Coupled with breathtaking and unparalleled scenery, the visceral experience of connecting with these wild places will give you a deep-seated sense of contentment and memories to cherish. 

That being said, there is significant challenge here...

The water is so clear, and these fish are highly perceptive and in tune with their pristine environments. Their senses are extraordinary. They are incredibly vigilant. So alert to sound and vibrations, they will leave you wondering how on earth they knew you were coming.

Understand them, experience the stunning New Zealand landscape, and improve your technique with a highly skilled instructor

Find out just why so many anglers are obsessed with the fishing here.

Your guide

“Creating memories worth cherishing is where my passion lives.” 

Todd Adolph developed a deep passion for fly fishing from a young age. 

Brought up in Queenstown, he has been exposed to some of New Zealand's best waters and knows them extensively. And it’s in the blood. His father and uncle are both fly fishing guides in the Otago and Southland regions, which has enabled Todd to build on their comprehensive in-depth knowledge of the fisheries. 

His approach is based around teaching, and he believes every day on the river is an opportunity to gain more understanding and develop as an angler.
