NEWS & OFFERS

PRESS RELEASE  APRIL 2018

Change is in the air.

This is a message to let all of you, our valued friends and supporters, know that we have sold our Thornton property and will no longer be occupying the building as of 18th May, 2018. To avoid any confusion, we wanted to clearly state that we have not sold the business. Our business will continue to operate as per normal, and we will offer almost the same range of services and support going forward, just without the presence of a physical store.

The major change for you is that our cottage and unit accommodation will no longer be available through us. The new owners may decide to rent them out, and we will keep you informed as to their plans once we learn more. In the meantime, however, we are working on providing you with some lovely alternative lodging in a nearby location, which we’ll keep you informed of in the coming months, via email, Facebook and our website. We will also continue to sell flies online, with a local pick up option as well.

All trips, lessons, workshops and drift boat trips, will still be conducted on local rivers and properties. There will be no discernible changes to our either the services that we offer, or the staff we employ.

For those wanting to come and stay with us one last time before the property changes hands, our advice is to get in quick, as the next few weeks of great autumn weather and fishing will go by in the blink of an eye. The river is already down to 4,000 ML/D, and it will fish well for the foreseeable future. The smaller streams are also in good shape, with plenty of options for those who prefer to chase fish in skinny water.

All our staff are ready and raring to go. The drift boats are loaded, the rods are rigged. There’s hot coffee, and plenty of fish getting about. As such, now is the perfect time to make that final trip of the season.

All the best and thank you for your continued support. We hope to see you again soon.

Cheers
Antony, David, Bo, Cam and the team.

OUR BEST MONTANA TRIP YET

Our July 2018 Montana trip will be our best yet. A completely new format that ensures we are mobile and able to travel to whichever area is fishing best at the time, will see even more opportunities for amazing dry fly fishing.

This is a guide’s style ‘road trip’ across Montana, Idaho and Wyoming at peak time.

If you’re a regular New Zealand Trip client with us whose been threatening to come over to Montana on one of our trips, this is undoubtedly the year to be coming.

GOULBURN RIVER DRIFT BOAT TRIPS

With the storms of early December now firmly behind us, this month is shaping up to see some of the best drift boat fishing of the season. The cicadas are just starting up, and the dry fly fishing and polaroiding will be first rate in the coming weeks.

Phone today to learn more about our drift boat trips, and if you book a two person trip on a weekday between now and Christmas, we will throw in a night of accommodation, to help make your visit an even more memorable one.

Fish the Swampy Plain River from one of our drift boats

The Swampy is one of Australia’s iconic trout rivers. Nestled beneath Kosciusko, it is home to some of the best trout fishing and scenery in the country.

Where and When

The Swampy is a four hour drive from our base of operations in Thornton VIC, so we tend to stay in the area for 7 days at a few peak times each season. Staying locally in Khancoban, we meet clients at the dam wall each morning, or we can do pick ups/drop offs locally if required. This trip attracts anglers from both Vic and NSW, as the drive from Sydney is not much further than for those coming from Melbourne.
