Fly Fishing

Poronui is a luxury fly fishing lodge nestled in the Taharua valley south-east of Taupo on New Zealand's spectacular North Island, offering guests the opportunity to catch legendary fish in stunning and pristine surroundings.

The 16,000 acre property is possibly the best fishing lodge New Zealand has to offer and has been a favored fishing and hunting ground for ancient Maori tribes, and since 1877, the English settlers.  Today the trout fishing and hunting on Poronui are recognized as world class and Forbes Magazine has listed Poronui in their top ten fishing destinations worldwide.

The landscape at Poronui is as varied as the sky is big. Crystal clear mountain water tumbles through forests of beech and native ferns, then twists its way through alpine meadows of wild grasses on the valley floor. In the summer months, as mayflies settle on the water’s surface, fishing becomes religion at Poronui.

Having heard the stories of the kind of giants to be caught fishing NZ, avid fly fishermen from all corners of the globe come to Poronui to test their skills against New Zealand's notoriously large, and wily, brown and rainbow trout. They do it in an isolated and beautiful wilderness. Guests will discover uncrowded streams, with angling opportunities to suit every preference or ability, no matter what the time of year.
