Backcountry Heli-fishing

World Class Trout Fishing Experiences

December through March are the peak fishing months in New Zealand and there is no better place to base yourself for summer fishing than the rivers and streams of the Central North Island. With the backcountry right at our backdoor, Helisika can take you there.

Summer backcountry fly fishing comprises of sight casting to large, wild trout that reside in these gin clear rivers.

Casting dry flys or dry fly/nymph combo's is the most effective way to target these often elusive fish.

 

 

Guided Fly Fishing in the Greater Taupo District

New Zealand is famous for its wilderness rivers, many of which are accessible only by helicopter. Local rivers like the world-famous Tongariro and the beautiful upper Ngaruroro offer some fantastic dry fly action and some of the anglers who pursue these monsters succeed in catching trophies of 12 pounds or more from more remote location like upper Rangitikei, Waipunga and Mohaka rivers. We can get you there.

Our experienced guides can provide all the gear you need for a first-class fishing experience. Even if you have never fly-fished before, the guides will patiently work with you to develop your skills and in all likelihood, deliver the exhilaration of catching your first wild New Zealand trout on a fly rod.
