These trips are fully hosted by Gary, including comfortable, relaxing riverside accommodation, all meals, equipment, transport and guiding. Starting at $1,000.00 per day. If you want to live and breathe fly fishing for two or more days, enquire about our regional river trips. You can experience different rivers each day, stay in scenic river accommodation, fit in an evening rise and generally spend more of each day chasing your next catch.

These trips are fully catered, breakfast and dinner on site and lunches on the river. Menus and drinks preference can be arranged by prior consultation. The meals have proven to be a major attraction for regular clients as we prepare wholesome, kiwi style meals, with a variety of breakfast choices, nibbles and a celebratory drink a the end of the day. We include local fresh produce including seafood and wild game.

Make your day a fantastic, unforgettable experience. Imagine indulging in the solitude and ambience on one of our Hawke’s Bay rivers, casting your line to our wild trout, whilst we assist you in experiencing that exciting tug on the end of your line. Our guides at Wild Trout Adventures are focused on enabling clients to sight, cast to, hook and land strong and fit rainbow and brown trout, most of really impressive size.

We operate half day, full day and multi day packages. Our packages cover from up-country to lowland and we cater for every person interested in trout fishing. Each package can be tailored to your personal preference or requirements.
