Personally guided fly fishing, Wanaka, New Zealand

Hi – I’m Craig Smith, owner and guide at Hatch Fly Fishing, based in the South Island fly fishing mecca of Wanaka. I know this fly fishery well – the weather patterns, water levels, fish movements, feeding habits, and have a good relationship with land owners to get access to those special places. Member NZPFGA. FFF certified instruction.



Just wanted to say thanks for a truly great day yesterday – a fantastic introduction to fly fishing.
Will hopefully get back to NZ again to do some more having practised casting in uk !! – but in meantime will have to make do with Derek Gezelewski’s trout diaries which I have just purchased.
