Owen River Lodge is just a superb adventure. All staff attend to every detail to ensure you have the best possible experience. It's like visiting close friends for a few days. Magnificent meals, great coffee and conversation in a warm friendly environment and then there's the fishing. I enjoyed three days of guided fishing and as an intermediate level 'fly caster' managed 18 trout between 3 and 7 lbs with a couple of others using well practiced escape techniques to avoid the net. Make no mistake, these fish are hard to catch. I only managed this due to the outstanding coaching of my guide. He spotted the fish, explained the perfect position to drop the fly, and then tutored me on how to control these powerful fish in deep fast flowing water. Whilst it's a mecca for fly fishers, it's an idyllic setting for partners who don't fish. Between luxurious rooms, a beautifully appointed lodge and glorious gardens, there was always somewhere comfortable to sit and relax. Put this one on your bucket list but be prepared for a return visit.

Set in tranquil valley of flying fishing heaven Owen River Lodge is a must!

Felix the host was generous , kind and welcoming. The food was simply amazing and the massage was just what the doctor ordered. The accommodation is private, warm and spotless, with views over the valley. The river is full of trout and the fishing was brilliant.

I can't recommend the experience enough.

I had the good fortune to be selected on this retreat Casting for Recovery last weekend. Felix very generously opens up his lodge for a group of ladies to learn how to cast and fly fish. I can not speak highly enough of the hospitality shown to everyone along with mouth watering food from chef Ryan. The setting is peaceful and the accommodation is spotless large and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble and every need was catered for. So to Felix cant thank you enough for a life changing weekend.

Amazing weekend in an absolutely beautiful location with immaculate and cosy facilities with delicious cuisine. Felix and his crew were helpful and friendly and the Fly Fishing was a fantastic first time experience with a very knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend the lodge and all it has to offer.
