Aspiring Fly Fishing Wanaka

18 Mako Mako Rd
Wanaka, New Zealand

My name is Paul Macandrew and I am the owner and Head Guide at Aspiring Fly Fishing Wanaka.

I am an extremely knowledgeable fly fishing guide and a proud member of the New Zealand Professional Fishing Guides Association (NZPFGA).

I have a great deal of experience fishing the waters of Wanaka and the surrounding rivers and I have a wealth of knowledge of the local weather patterns and entomology of the area’s streams.

On trips with Aspiring Fly Fishing Wanaha, you will be guided through some of the most stunning locations in New Zealand, traversing the area’s pristine waterways in search of wild Brown and Rainbow Trout in their natural habitat. This is truly New Zealand Trout fishing at its best.

Not only does Wanaka boast amazing landscapes, its gin-clear rivers, still waters, and streams are home to numerous Brown and Rainbow Trout. This is a fly fishing paradise.

Depending on the conditions on the day of your excursion, you could venture beyond Wanaka into the Mackenzie Basin, South Westland, and Southland. All these areas offer unforgettable angling and will give you memories to last a lifetime.

Contact me now to start planning your New Zealand trout fishing adventure!

I look forward to hearing from you,

Paul
