Backcountry Heli-Fishing Trips
Heli-fishing is for the quintessential wilderness hunter with little time to spare and who is keen to adventure into New Zealand’s most remote places. If a wilderness, gin clear water and big fish are what you dream of then this is for you. By utilising the helicopter we are able to get far into the backcountry, where it would usually take days to get by foot, if its even possible at all!
This trip is available for either a single day fly-in/out or a multi-day camp out. In the case of an overnight trip, the heli allows us to bring some small creature comforts with us including good food, decent bedding and a few beers/wine to celebrate each evening. Depending on the location we will either be based in basic backcountry huts or tents, bringing in everything we need for those few days. For additional cost it is also possible to utilise the heli to drop us at a different river each few days to fish new water and top up on supplies.
The New Zealand backcountry is unlike any other on the planet, we will be hunting large wild trout in pristine, remote environments where its all about quality over quantity and every opportunity is taken with time and consideration. This is the ultimate in NZ fly fishing and a once in a lifetime experience for any serious angler.
