New Zealand is regarded as a trout fishing mecca. The Wanaka region has some of the most amazing landscapes, boasting gin clear rivers, streams and stillwaters with large wild brown and rainbow trout, a combination that provides a ‘once in a lifetime’ fly fishing experience. Let Paul hook you up with some of the best of New Zealand’s stunning rivers stalking trout.
