Daily Guide Fees

Casey provides a high-quality, low-impact guide service specializing in one - to ten day trips to rivers like the legendary Mataura, whose lush Deleatidium hatches and wild free-rising browns make the river a dry-fly mecca; intimate Otago and Southland tributaries with big fish in small water; and classic backcountry rivers of the Southern Alps where trophy rainbows and browns sway in pools as clear as mountain air.

Fly fishing the South Island's remote rivers in Fiordland and Mt Aspiring national parks and the wild West Coast are an angling dream come true.

Large wild trout, gorgeous South Island landscapes, custom flies, gourmet lunch and a professional photo service make this the trip of a lifetime. The Southern region has such a wealth of good water, the complete range so discuss with Casey what you want.

Guiding Rates; (Please check with Casey for current rates)

Single day of guiding:

  • For one or two anglers - NZ$750 - NZ$850 depending on driving distances


  • For overnight camping and dinner, add $NZ200 per person. I can provide four-season tents, sleeping bags and Therma-Rest mats.
  • Helicopter prices begin at $850 and, if divided by a few mates, are surprisingly
    affordable when you factor in the cost of accommodations compared to a
    backcountry overnight trip.

Casey, client and a great fish!
