Owen River Lodge, New Zealand
Our good friends at Owen River Lodge just let us know they will be hosting a week of luxury, pampering and outstanding fly fishing for women anglers only.

Located in the greater Nelson Lakes/Murchison region at the north end of the South Island, Owen River Lodge is a stylish and cool, yet understated lodge for discerning fly fishers. From home base on sixteen acres of serene riverfront property on the Owen River, guests can easily access more than thirty rivers in the area, most of which are less than an hour’s drive from the premises. The rivers of the west coast, Murchison, Nelson and Marlborough regions are all within reach. For those willing to chopper out, even more systems await exploration. In addition to the comforts of the main lodge, guests enjoy private cottages with king beds, reverse cycle air conditioning, fine original artwork and handsome wood detailing. Meals at the lodge are eclectic and superb, borrowing from Maori, Polynesian, Asian, and European traditions in a unique fusion referred to as “Pacifica Cuisine.”

This special trip will be hosted by Owen River Lodge’s Assistant manager Kylie Sargent. Kylie is warm and welcoming and also happens to be New Zealand’s only female certified Fly Fishers International casting instructor. “The focus is on fishing so there’ll be casting lessons and fly-tying demonstrations,” says Kylie. “But we also want this to be a week of luxury and relaxation.”
