TROUTin NZ pricing options as a guide


Lead “Basic” (DIY)

Assuming I’m available I’ll meet you at Christchurch (Airport) (remember it may take me an hour to get there!) and spend an hour or so discussing and advising, as well as giving you a map. I’ll show you where to go, advise on tackle and times, methods and tactics. Maybe you can go camping and some people even use bicycles but you must have all your own kit. You need to get yourself to Christchurch and a Fishing licence (£65) then its up to you

Notes: Prices can be reduced for parties that are large and could vary for smaller parties too.
We will arrange all transport within NZ except in the Bronze level.
You need your own suitable clothing (or you may need to buy some in NZ)
But we can usually provide all fishing kit – discuss with us what you wish to bring.
These are based on a minimum of 6 nights… 3 nights will not be half these figures but longer stays will see better value for money and a fortnight is unlikely to double the cost.
