My father arrived from Canada to visit us in march before we finish our year in auckland. One of his "bucket list" items was to go trout fishing in new zealand. I talked to many new zealanders at work and they almost all mentioned trout fishing on the mataura river. I booked 3 days of guided fishing with Barry staying at the b&b that he and Diane own and run. The goal was to go fly fishing (and Barry is an amazing guide) but the real treat were the hosts themselves. They are warm and inviting, making you feel right at home. Suffice to say my father and I enjoyed ourselves immensely and if we had the opportunity again would return in a heartbeat. Thanks again!
