Te Anau/Twizel/ Southland/Fiordland/Fairlie
The Maniototo is a timeless land of peace and tranquillity, its vast open spaces demanding a slow and measured pace from the traveller.
The visitor soon forgets the city life, as they absorb the sprawling vistas and the sense of history evoked by the goldfields of long ago.
With its ice-cold winters and dry hot summers, the Maniototo is a challenging place in which to live.
But, with its well-kept pastures and winding roads seemingly leading to nowhere, many people have made this valley their home.
Dean Whaanga Fly Fishing' s headquarters are located in Te Anau, on the very edge of the world renowned Fiordland National Park.
Dean and his partner Fiona live on 20 acres of farmland on the edge of the Fiordland Wilderness and operate Blue Mountain Cottages, ideal lodgings from where to base your fishing adventure in New Zealand's beautiful South Island..Location
