Ronan's Fly Fishing Missions
On the front line of New Zealand Fly Fishing and Guiding
2017 / 18 PRICING AND INFORMATION
This seasons rates are $800NZD per day for one, 850 for 2 or 900 for 3 anglers). Half-Day rate is $650 per half day. This includes pick up from your accommodation in or near Cromwell, approximately 40 to 90 minutes drive time each way to and from our chosen water (sometimes off-road), approximately 8 hours on the water with full professional guidance, a healthy homemade lunch (not included in the Half-Day option), rods, reels, leaders, flies and associated equipment, qualified casting tuition (if needed), high resolution digital photos - these will be sent to your email. At the end of the day you'll be brought back to your accommodation. The same day rate applies per day during a Road Trip, Backcountry Walk-in, Lakes & Stillwater, or Heli-Fishing option.
To add a camp-out to any day carries an extra fee of $250 per 1 or $300 per 2 people. This includes quality tents, mattresses, sleeping bags, all camping equipment, dinner, breakfast and my backcountry culinary skills! Each angler is required to carry his or her own tent, sleeping bag and mattress for the Backcountry walk-in option.
You will need a freshwater fishing licence which is not included in the above fee. This can be either purchased online at www.fishandgame.org.nz or arranged on the day from $20 NZD per 24 hour allocation. I recommend that you purchase your license before coming to NZ. This will save time on the morning of our day on the river or lake. If you'd like full access to backcountry rivers I recommend getting a full season license with a backcountry endorsement. The backcountry endorsement is free but can only be obtained by full season license holders. If you have any questions about which license to buy, please email me!
For most of the season we wet-wade here in NZ. I like to wear polyprops (mens tights!) and a comfortable pair of shorts. Others favour quick drying trousers. A tough pair of boots is important, not necessarily specifically designed fishing boots, but remember, they will get wet! Neoprene socks are great for keeping your feet warm when wet wading. I highly recommend you invest in a pair before your trip. I can supply quality Simms waders and boots for a charge of $50 per angler per day.
To secure your booking I'll need a 30% non-refundable deposit of $240nz per day. I accept the remainder of the payment on the day or before if you'd prefer. I reserve the right to postpone or cancel any trip in the event of dangerous weather or any situation I believe to pose a hazard. Full refund given in the event of an act of god, however if you, the client, are the hazard (drink, drugs, mis-information etc) there will be no refund given.
Please don't hesitate to email me with any further questions.
