"I have only ever been a saltwater fisher-woman until the day I went out with Mark on FishJet. He changed my perception of trout fishing. My first catch was this big brown at about 5kg - not bad for a beginner. Drifting down the Waiau river is an experience in itself; add to that the excitement of catching brown and rainbow trout and breaking for a delicious lunch on its banks made for one of the best days I've had." Yolanta, NZ

What the trip is:
• Pick up available in Te Anau or meet at Queens Reach boat ramp, 7kms from Te Anau towards Manapouri

• Board our brand new purpose built 5m Mackraft jet boat and head down the Waiau River, which holds a very healthy fishery and plenty of Rainbow Trout. In some areas there are up to 600 fish within a km length of river so there is a great chance of catching perhaps your first fish!

• The boat is positioned and is switched off and we begin our fishing in quiet, casting to the trout as we spot them and chancing it where we know they hang out. Occasionally the boat is started up and re-positioned but largely it is silent and the experience is so peaceful drifting past stunning scenery of the Fiordland National Park and the Kepler Track on one side that even If you are not actively fishing, it is extraordinary.

• Once we reach Lake Manapouri on the longer trips or our time comes to an end, we wind the lines in and enjoy the return jet boat ride back up the river, taking in all the eye-catching scenery at leisure.
