New Zealand Saltwater Fly Fishing

New Zealand is developing a quality reputation as a saltwater fly fishing destination. We have opportunity to fish flats for several species, both wading and from boats. There is also a few other interesting options for a wide range of reef species as well as potential for offshore fishing for at least 3 tuna species and potentially the worlds biggest stripped Marlin. The mighty Yellowtail Kingfish (Seriola lalandi) are the top of the target list for saltfly anglers in New Zealand. These powerhouses are able to be targeted on fly in several flats fishers around the country. To add Saltwater fly fishing into your New Zealand fishing trip, contact us today.
