Greenstone (Pounamu) was considered so special by Maori they named the South Island after it - Te Waipounamu. Maori chiefs wore it as a symbol of status and it was (and still is) gifted in the name of peace, however, it is a gift that must NEVER be given solely to oneself but given to others.
Tucked away in the far North West corner of the South Island lies another gem. The untouched wilderness of the venerable Kahurangi National Park. Like a piece of Greenstone, it won't take long for you to work out why Kahurangi means “treasured possession...” the region is pristine in everyway and with its vast array of gin-clear waterways nestled amongst flora & fauna found no where else on earth... the scene is set for some next level trout fishing.
You're well off the beaten track here, it's just you, mother nature and sight fishing at its finest.
