Fairlie is a great small town nestled in the foot hills of South Canterbury in New Zealand’s South Island. This beautiful place makes for a great overnight stay and has a couple of nice streams that offer some classical small water fly fishing options. This location we know very well and there are a couple of locations in this zone we love to fish in good weather and river conditions.
As with all fly fishing locations in New Zealand we highly recommend using a professional fly fishing guide. Professional registered fishing guides all hold valid department of conservation concessions and insurances.
