Camping Out Fly Fishing New Zealand's North Island
(October - April) Fish your way up a river, catch a few trout and as evening approaches sit by the camp fire enjoying New Zealand's lush green native bush. Enjoy a simple meal cooked by the fire that will taste better than any restaurant could have made and talk about the days fishing with your friends and guide.
I love wilderness campouts! There are no snakes in New Zealand, no bears, in fact nothing that can cause any harm. Our bush/forests are breathtaking and I love being there whether I am hunting or fishing, to be honest hunting and fishing are just my excuses to be out there.
At AA we provide all the equipment you will need including lightweight tents, lightweight high quality down sleeping bags, back-packs, cooking & safety equipment, GPS's, etc. We know the areas well and know which tracks to take, which shortcuts to take, and which flies to use.
Our wilderness campout adventures start at 3 days for $2500 and each subsequent day is an extra $800. This is a package price for up to two persons and includes all food, camping equipment, sleeping bags, tents, safety equipment and everything else needed for a great, safe trip into the New Zealand outdoors. Each extra person past the first two is an extra $100/day.
If you enjoy deer stalking (hunting) then I am happy to take you while we are in the bush. AA has all the hunting equipment necessary for this including rifle and blaze orange clothing for safety - you will not need a New Zealand firearms license when accompanied by someone who has one. I will deal with the animal should you be lucky enough to shoot one! Nothing like venison back steaks cooked in the bush.
AA's wilderness campout fly fishing adventures normally involve considerable walking and require a good level of fitness. If this is not you but you would still like to experience the same things then see our heli-fishing page or our "On Tour" fishing below. Our heli-fishing adventures offer the same type of surroundings but without all the walking.
On Tour Fly Fishing The North Island
Our on tour adventures offer you the chance to fish different parts of the Central North Island of New Zealand, ranging from the east coast to the west. We stay at a variety of places from motels and lodges to in tents and huts and the level of accommodation is up to you. Every day or two we move to a new river for something different, in a month you needn't fish the same water twice. Our on tour rates start are $780/day + food and accommodation. We have numerous accommodation options ranging from staying in a tent to B & B's, backpackers, and 5 star. Contact us with your budget and timeframe and your wish list and we will put together a customized package for you, or just book ahead with us and we'll play it by ear day to day.
