On the Fly Mataura River Festival


Come hang out on the banks of the Mataura River as we celebrate fly fishing, the elusive brown trout, our world-renowned river and our title as the World Capital of Brown Trout Fishing. We'll have a'fish'ionados on-site to teach you how to cast a line, tie flies and more. 

For those more interested in dining on fish rather than casting for them; Masterchef winner Brett McGregor will be returning to demonstrate his culinary skills and how to prepare brown trout to impress friends and family. 

Internationally recognised guide and writer, Chris Dore will be hanging out with us for the day and leading a group demo on the art of fly-fishing, nymphing and casting. Plus, this year we will be joined by new guides from both inside and outside of the region, all keen to share their knowledge and show off their abilities. 

There’ll be plenty to keep the kids and adults entertained with fun competitions and amazing first-class prizes! Watch this space or follow us on Facebook for more updates and teasers in the lead up to the event. 

Grab some tasty food and drinks, have a go at something new and while away the afternoon relaxing by the river.
