where it all began
Gin-Clear Travel developed as a sister company to the fly fishing film company Gin-Clear Media. We are based in a small town in the deep south of New Zealand called Te Anau. Over the last 15 years, Gin-Clear Media has established a loyal and wide spread following via a number of feature films and our RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival.
The company is owned and run by Nick Reygaert. He is world renowned for producing some of the best fly fishing films of all time, e.g. THE SOURCE SERIES, HATCH, PREDATOR, LEVIATHAN and the BACKCOUNTRY films. In 2006, Nick initiated the RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival in New Zealand and Australia since then it has grown into an annual global festival, visiting 16 countries and playing in 5 languages in 65 cities around the world.
Gin-Clear Travel was created in response to a growing demand for hosted fly fishing trips from our fans and festival attendees. We were constantly being asked for fly fishing travel advice to exotic destinations from people inspired by our films, it was a logical step for us to become a booking agency and connect our customers with the lodges and guides that we had filmed with.
The destinations and lodges that we represent are second to none, the best in the world and are the perfect fit to deliver you the fly fishing trip of your lifetime.
