Most of the fishing is sight fishing. It is challenging, exciting and rewarding. Mark specializes in fly fishing and caters for all levels of experience.
In addition to trout fishing, Mark provides guided fishing tours for Quinnat (Chinook) salmon on several South Island east coast rivers. The salmon average is 13-16lbs, with fish 20-35lbs not uncommon. Runs begin in December and continue to the end of April. The better period is February until mid April. We recommend a minimum of 2 days and preferably 4-6 days to give yourself the best chance of catching a New Zealand Quinnat salmon. An added attraction to going salmon fishing is the opportunity to use different tackle and to fish for large sea run brown trout (4-10lbs+).
Salmon fishing excursions can be combined with trout fishing itineraries, providing clients with an interesting combination of experiences.
