Fly Fishing at Murchison near the top the South Island
Where do you start when planning a fishing trip to New Zealand?
The weather is so very often completely unpredictable and it can also
Vary really quite considerably across even a relatively very short distance.

Having a number of options is therefore desirable.
Some essential requirements for a base to operate from.
Are lodgings, groceries and other basic provisions and of course
Lots of streams and rivers that will provide you with quality fishing.
Well Murchison ticks all of the boxes as  there are rivers just everywhere
Gowan, Mangles, Matiri, Glenroy, Matakitaki, Maruia and the mighty Buller.



There are other Attractions available such as, 

 ”The Natural Flames Experience”

Taken from an article by Merve Bigden,
