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.


Hi Craig,

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for a fantastic day last week. Alexander and I greatly enjoyed the experience and it was a highlight of our week in Wanaka. I have attached a photo of a very happy fisher lad with his catch!
Thank you again for a great experience.

Jim and Alexander M, New Zealand more
