Making it our business to get you hooked up...

Welcome to the South Island’s fly-fishing paradise

South Island Trout

 While our guides are out exploring the rivers for you; it is my pleasure to assist you with your booking. Feel free to drop me a line…. nans@southernlatitudeguides.com.

The sheer abundance of pristine rivers and waterways in New Zealand’s Southern Latitudes, provide literally hundreds of miles of plentiful fly fishing water. The quality of these waterways is amazing with no two rivers the same.

You can choose from the Nelson/Marlborough region, boasting its range of ambling lowland rivers and pristine wilderness streams, to the often wild waters holding large brown and rainbow trout in remote Fiordland region, and everything in between… You will be spoilt for choice of the locations available with each guide.

Guided Trout Fly Fishing Adventures in New Zealand’ South Island

My name is Nans Kirkpatrick-Stolk, based in Nelson, wife of and Personal Assistant for Mike Kirkpatrick (guide & CEO) from the well-established Latitude Guiding. How I came to be your host: Mike was often booked when enquiries came in so we approached guides, mainly that Mike already knew, or whose reputation made them an obvious choice to help the client out. This set up a database of quality guides that are available for you today. My objective is to ‘seamlessly find the transition from your dream to reality’. All of the initial contact, correspondence, organizing, gear hire, logistics, accommodation and advice will be taken care of.

Our guides are ready to get you out and into it, simply pick your favored location, or leave it to me to find a place to suit what you desire to make your dreams an angling reality. These can be anything from single day trips, whether by 4×4 boat or helicopter fly-ins, to back country camp-out adventures, epic road trips… all possible, right here! Ask me a quote and we will make it happen! 😉

Warm regards, Nans.
