A great catch for female anglers

July 2, 2020 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

For female fishing enthusiasts angling for something different to testosterone-filled fishing lodges, this is the catch!  And for those women who fly-fishing may have tickled their fancy, this is a great opportunity to give it a go in a no-pressure environment.

Sue Farley, Luxury Travel Specialist, NZ Travel Brokers is aware that some women don’t feel very confident fishing with men.  As such, this women’s only retreat has been created, enabling women to fish at their own pace and level while the team at this award-winning lodge spoils guests in the process.

The focus might be on fishing, but this will also be a week of luxury and relaxation. Owen River Lodge holds New Zealand’s highest accreditation for luxury and environmental responsibility. The guest cottages and the main lodge building are bright, stylish and elegant. They hang fine art on the walls, rather than dead animals. They celebrate the stunning views across the valley to Kahurangi National Park and have created beautiful gardens to enhance them.  The guest accommodation is spacious, comfortable and spares no expense. Guests can choose to share a room with a fishing buddy, a new friend, or have the space to themselves.

One’s culinary experience can be described as sensational. Only the freshest local produce is used and the lodge’s large organic garden supplies the kitchen with produce every day and is backed up by daily deliveries of fresh fruit and vegetables grown in the Nelson region.

This rare exclusive retreat for women only also offers full access to the lodge amenities, including the Jacuzzi (always hot, always on, and perfect for soothing away any travel kinks)  and a complimentary one-hour pamper massage delivered by a skilled local masseuse is provided.

Bookings are now being taken for next April and being a boutique property, guest numbers are limited.   Travel agents rates available.
