farm stay and fly fishing south island

by /bio/bucketlist »

We will be going to NZ February 24 to March 11 and will mainly be staying in the southern part of the South Island.  For example, we are thinking of not going up north to Nelson.  

We are renting a car in Queenstown and will drive around seeing Mt Cook , Milford Sound, and the glaciers.  We are mainly interested in seeing the natural beauty and taking hikes.  We will be doing the Routeburn Track the last 3 days March 8-11.  I was wondering if you could recommend a farm stay and also a guide for fly fishing in the vicinity of the southern part of the South Island.  

Also, is there easy internet access in most areas?  I am thinking of bringing my laptop and reserving motels the day before so that we have the freedom to explore.   Does T-mobile work for my cell phone in most areas?  Does it make sense to bring my Garmin GPS?    thanks, bucketlist
