The Hurunui's stunning coastline and extensive network of rivers and lakes offer some of New Zealand's best fishing.
Surfcasters will love the opportunity to snare some snapper from the coastline - Motunau Beach is a particularly popular spot.
The district's high country lakes, including Lake Sumner, Lake Taylor and Loch Katrine, offer some great chances for fly fishing. Access can be tricky though.
The district's rivers are also great spots for both trout and salmon.
New Zealand does have rules and regulations around fishing in rivers - you can find those here.
