It is a long short but hope someone knows a local fishing guide who is willing to do half a day guided fishing on XMas day, 12/25!? I contacted many who were listed here with no success: https://www.fishingguides.co.nz/fly-fishing/southland-fiordland;

It is Xmas day and totally understand that family commitments takes a priority. Ideally looking for Fly Fishing guide in a river.

Fishing is a significant reason for visitors to NZ. I'd really like to read some reflections/reports on su h a trip.

I'm very much an occasional fisher, I'm one of those for whom actually catching a fish is a bonus (it's called "fishing" not "catching"). I'd just like to hear the impressions of someone from outside the country experience.

How about coming back with a bit of a fishers tale?

Coming back for the fishing trip seems very tempting . this trip was not intended to be a fishing one! as as I was planning the trip, I read about the fishing options and I got super interested . Would love to experience the fresh water fishing in NZ. Will update back if I could manage to fish.
