The Fly Fishing Dream Have you been dreaming about sneaking in a day of fishing on the river, but keep putting it off due to lack of inspiration or no time? You Have?! Then come join us on the North Island's beautiful Rangitikei River. Imagine you are there, casting your line into likely looking spots, a healthy river teeming with life. Does the Experienced Fisherman Want More? As an experienced fisherman, you do not need someone telling you how to fish. Rather, one of our experienced raft guides will take you down the river and stop wherever you think looks best to cast your line. Even try some casting from the raft for those hard to get places. Cost: $745.00 for full day (1 boat with up to 3 anglers) Includes: - Packed Lunch/refreshments - A raft as your transportation downstream with one of our experienced rafting guides - Life jacket plus a wetsuit and helmet if required What we provide: Raft, guide, river wear. We do not provide fishing equipment or licenses. What you need to bring: Fishing equipment and fishing license. If you have any questions, we can answer them through the GetMyBoat messaging platform before paying. Simply press "Request to reserve" and send us an inquiry for a personalized offer.
River Valley has grown to be what it is today through the passion of initially Nicola's parents, Brian and Robin, and since 1986, Brian Megaw and Nicola. Being away from the main tourist centres, we have tended to develop systems and ways of doing things that are often unique to us. This approach is quite holistic, whether it be Natural Horse Training at the Stables, growing our own vegetables for the Lodge kitchen, having an extended family relationship within the staff, or doing practical things for the natural environment.From the very beginning our focus has been on delivering a quality, fun experience to our guests, maintaining good relationships with our local community, and operating with a minimum footprint in our natural environment.
You’ll get directions to the departure location when you make a booking.
