Fly Fishing at Poronui with Belinda Luksic

Luxury Travel Magazine writer, Belinda Luksic, recently visited Poronui and tried her hand at fly fishing for the first time.

With Sean Andrews as her guide, Belinda was able to experience the magic of the wilderness, heli-fishing, and a night in the luxury Safari Camp situated on the banks of the Mohaka River.

Belinda explains that even for amateur’s who have never tried it before, fly fishing is a lot of fun. You can read about her experience at Poronui here.
