New Zealand closed its borders in March 2020 and the fish have not seen significant pressure since that time. Now is the time to take advantage of the early-season fishing in New Zealand and to be amongst the first to cast to your trophy!

Fishing trips have been delayed from both the 20/21 season and 21/22 season into this year. Availability is extremely limited. However, due to a group cancellation we are happy to offer three incredible fishing packages to the world-renown Poronui for this November!

Don't have time for a long holiday? Fly down on a Friday and be back at home in a week:

  • Leave on Friday the 11th November and fly back to the States on Thursday the 17th.

Want to extend your time? Just ask one of our team!

  • This is an excellent time of year to fish New Zealand and we can combine your time at Poronui with additional days on the South Island.

Poronui packages are limited to 3 rooms only (max of 6 rods). The lodge is booked the rest of the season, so don't wait! Be among the first to fish New Zealand in 2022/23 and take advantage of this first-come-first-served offer.

Take to the skies and seek out some of Poronui's favorite - and New Zealand’s best - fly fishing spots. We are happy to present the following heli-fishing package to help you soar over spectacular scenery in search of pristine back country rivers and streams which play host to both New Zealand Brown and Rainbow Trout.

This package runs in the early part of the fishing season when the water is warm, fish are hungry, less selective and have lived undisturbed over the winter... not to mention no pressure since March 2020!

This all-inclusive heli-fishing package makes visiting easy, and includes:

  • Roundtrip transport to/from Taupo Airport
  • 5 nights double/twin accommodation at the Lodge,
  • 4 days guided fishing
    • 2 days by helicopter and
    • 2 day by ground
  • Daily country breakfast,
  • Light lunch for the river,
  • Canapés, gourmet dinner, including beer and beverages (except for wines from the Cellar List),
  • Same day personal laundry service and
  • Complimentary use of fishing gear (waders, boots, rods and reels)


These packages are offered on a first-come-first served basis. Due to limited availability at Poronui for the season we can not guarantee other available dates in lieu of those listed.

Prices are based on current exchange rates to the $NZD as of June, 2022 and are already inclusive of New Zealand's 15% GST. The package price is for land costs only, and are based upon two anglers traveling together, sharing a room, helicopter and fishing guide. A single supplement is available per person upon request.

Special Airfares on Air New Zealand available upon request and will be based on the best available fare for your required dates; upgrades to Premium Economy & Premier Business Class available. Packages are provided on a first-come-first-served basis and is subject to availability at the time of booking.
