Womens Luxury Fly Fishing Retreat

In April 2021, Owen River Lodge hosted our inaugural luxury fly fishing retreat exclusively for women.

What’s more, this event was the first of its kind in New Zealand.

The first in the country. We can’t believe that no-one else here had even considered such a thing. As if women aren’t interested in catching big wild brown trout (wrong!).

As if they’re not good at it (wrong again!).

Over the years we’ve seen the power of those XX chromosomes time and time again out on the water. All the husbands out-fished by their wives will know exactly what I’m talking about (sorry, guys).

The women had so much fun that we’ve decided to run this event again next year and due to our borders still being closed, it will be an all Kiwi event.

This coming season it is scheduled for 22 > 28 April 2023
