KIA ORA

Category 3 Fly Company is a small independent fly company based in Taupo, New Zealand.

Those of you who have been fortunate enough to fish the wilderness rivers of New Zealand will have a good understanding of how technical it can be. Gin clear water with some of the spookiest fish on the planet that require pin point accuracy and the right choice of fly.

We create those flies!

REFINED TO PERFECTION

For the last 15 years we have been lucky enough to spend over 150 days a season guiding anglers from all over the world on the wilderness rivers of New Zealand and over that period of time we have been constantly developing new patterns and tweaking old ones to create a selection of flies using quality materials and construction techniques, that work around the world.

THESE ARE THE FLIES THAT WE USE
