We are proud to present a few fly fishing packages for the early part of the 2022 fly fishing season! With New Zealand's borders having been closed for 2+ years, you have the chance to be among the first to fish in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Any other November is a fantastic time to fly fishing New Zealand as the weather is stable, waters are warmed and the fish are actively feeding. In a "normal" year this would be a great time to fish because the fish have been undisturbed over the winter... however this November is your opportunity to cast to fish which have most likely not been presented and risen to an artificial fly in 2+ years!

North Island: 4 nights/ 3 days at Poronui

The package is built around your time on the North Island and seeking out some of Poronui's favorite (and some of New Zealand’s best) fly fishing spots. This vast private high country estate has miles of world-class fishing water, and offers a variety of fishing options. We are happy to include four nights & three full days fishing at this luxury lodge as part of your special.

If you have never had the opportunity to experience these pristine back country rivers and streams which play host to both New Zealand Brown and Rainbow Trout, you are in for a treat!

Your stay at Poronui includes:

  • 4 nights accommodations in one of the private Villas on property
  • 3 days guided fishing
  • Daily country breakfast
  • Packed lunch while on the river
  • Canapés, gourmet dinner, including beverages (except for wines from the Cellar List)
  • Same day personal laundry service and,
  • Complimentary use of fishing gear (waders, boots, rods and reels).

South Island: 3+ nights/ 2-3 days+ guided fishing

The South Island portion of this year's specials will be arranged according to your calendar and budget. While your stay at Poronui as part of these specials are limited to November 14-> 18th, our team has paired a number of accommodation options with 2-3+ days of guided fishing on either side of your stay at Poronui.

So, you have options!

  • Prefer to stay and experience some of the best luxury accommodations the country has to offer? We will arrange this for you, and have a guide meet & greet you each morning for fishing.
  • Prefer to work within a tighter budget but still want to fish some of the best waters in the country? We can make that happen as well.

Our intention with this Springtime package is to accommodate how you would like to spend your time while providing a chance to be among the first to fish New Zealand this year.
