As the season has just come to a close on most of the rivers in New Zealand, Owen River Lodge is excited to announce they will be hosting a week of luxury, pampering and outstanding fly fishing for women-only anglers.
The initiative is close to the heart of their assistant lodge manager, Kylie Sargeant, who says the retreat is an opportunity for women to either bring a female fishing buddy or come by themselves to relax and fish in a no-pressure environment. “New Zealand is a very safe country for women anglers,” says Kylie. “No bears, no snakes, and Kiwis are a friendly bunch.” Guests on the retreat will not only have the benefit of her warm welcome; Kylie’s also New Zealand’s only female certified Fly Fishers International casting instructor. “The focus is on fishing, so there’ll be casting lessons and fly-tying demonstrations,” says Kylie. “But we also want this to be a week of luxury and relaxation.”
Owen River Lodge has put together a special package that is sure to provide women anglers with a fun-filled week of fishing and camaraderie. This trip is limited to just 12 anglers so do not hesitate and miss out!
There’ll be plenty of extra goodies as well—but we don’t want to spoil the surprise!
For the past seven years, Owen River Lodge has generously been supporting Casting For Recovery for their Upper South Island retreat. Casting For Recovery offers retreats free of charge to people who have, or have had, breast cancer. This experience has certainly prepared them to host a ladies-only week at the lodge.
