Not planning on spey fishing, but headed down to the south island in February and looking for some tips. It's a pretty slammed schedule, but would love a PM or two with just hints on places to poke around.. Might switch out a few places yet, so taking hints! Feel free to PM to avoid hotspotting.

Feb 2-4 Waikuku Beach
Feb 4-7 Brooklyn
Feb 7-8 Hokitika
Feb 8-9 Franz Josef
Feb 9-12 Lake Hawea
Feb 12-14 Glenorchy
Feb 14 - 17 Manapouri
Feb 17- 19 Winton
Feb 19- 21 Twizel
Feb 21 Christchurch and home

Oh and staying in Rarotonga for 4 days before hand, not going to Aitutaki, but any point in bringing a salt rod for trevallys or anything off the beach?

Not familiar with South Island waters, but I am sure you get some nice action around where you have listed.
I fished with trout spinning gear out of beach resort at Raroton grant and had good fun catching trevaly etc.
