The locations

  • Bay of Islands is one of the best areas for fishing in New Zealand and the world. Zane Grey put in early 1900 the Bay of Islands on the world fishing map catching Marlin, Hapuku, Broadbill and Tuna. And we still do! We also have the lovely Kingfish, Snappers, Trevally, and many other species. All great to eat! The Bay of Islands is a little bit of birthplace for the nation and has the history very visable and open to our visitors! There are are plenty of great dining spots to bring your filleted catch to and they will cook it for you. Nice local wines too!
  • Coromandel and Amodeo Bay has the mountains and native bush in its’ backyard and the Hauraki Gulf on its doorstep. Anglers Lodge in Amodeo Bay has one of the most spectacular surroundings, great fishing opportunities and breath taking views. With an outlook over scattered islands out in the Firth of Thames, Anglers Lodge really is its own little piece of paradise and it is run by the Wahlgren family. The team will make the best effort to make your fishing trip and stay something special to remember!
