The lodges and hotels that I describe in this issue are all of potential interest to non-anglers; most simply happen to be places where exceptional trout fishing is one of the principal activities. Of course, those for whom fly-fishing is a passion may wish to stay for a longer period at a lodge primarily intended for anglers. During my recent trip, I asked guides and other knowledgeable people whichNew Zealandfishing lodges currently enjoy the highest reputations. Two names recurred:Owen River LodgeandStonefly Lodge. Both are located in the northern part of the South Island, less than a 90-minute drive fromEdenhouse.
