Poronui Fishing

Poronui -  New Zealand fly fishing at its best

What makes dry fly fishing at Poronui so special is the convenient access to so many of New Zealand's best quality fishing waters and guides. The property has almost 25 miles of water. The Taharua - a spring creek - meanders down the valley, while the Mohaka River - a tumbling freestone stream - wraps itself around one boundary.

The mountains adjacent to Poronui are vast estates of Maori-owned land. We are privileged to travel to much of this wonderful wilderness reserve. Without a doubt, the remoteness of these rivers and streams make them some of the most prized fly fishing waters in the world.

Fishing Options

Poronui also hosts a helicopter charter service, flying fishermen quickly and easily into otherwise inaccessible areas. This immediate and flexible access to waters on the property, and nearby, mean you will never fish the same spot twice. The legendary Ngaruroro and Rangitikei Rivers, and many more remote and smaller streams, are only a short and spectacular helicopter flight away.

Whether your choose to wade in shallow, gentle streams, or tackle the very physical demands of an alpine freestone stream, there is water on the property to suit you.
