Product Information

100 GUIDES  BEST NEW ZEALAND PATTERNS  The collection comes in anOlive Green Transparent Waterproof  Slit Foam Fly Box in  large holds 540 flies  fly box with the following flies

Recommended fly selections for New Zealand are typically pretty basic, as the rivers are relatively sterile. However, I prefer to take a wide range of flies so that I feel like I'm covered in just about any circumstance. The basic aquatic bugs are mayflies and caddisflies, with midges and stoneflies more important in a few places. Terrestrial patterns such as small hoppers, beetles, and cicadas are also essential in the summer months. I have found that the fish aren't terribly sophisticated when it comes to patterns, but I'm always prepared for the fish that is feeding selectively.

Carry a wide range of generic dry fly patterns in sizes 12-16. These would include various Wulff patterns, Klinkhammers, Parachutes, and hairwings. For nymphs, go with copper or black tungsten weighted nymphs in sizes 14-18. Again, generic patterns such as Pheasant Tails and Hare & Coppers tied in a variety of colors will cover most situations. Always have a few larger stonefly and damselfly nymphs in the box, as well.  Cicadas, beetles, ants, and hopper patterns can all be effective, so carry a box of terrestrials. Fishing streamers—Zonkers and Beadhead Woolly Buggers—often works great, especially in stained or high water. Mouse fishing is one thing that New Zealand is well known for, so carry a few of these for fishing some of the Beech forest streams and lakes.
