Honeymoon FlyFishing trip into the back counrty

Taka and his wife were in Queenstown for their honeymoon and keen to take a helicopter out into the back country for some fly fishing.

We like to practice catch and release in our back country rivers, so the next day we went to a local lake and caught a couple of fish that we smoked for lunch on the side of a river.

Helicopters open up a whole new world when time is not on your side, and gives the opportunity to go to the back of beyond..

Having a river like this to yourselves for the day, priceless..

Fish on…

Fish from Diamond Lake, just right for lunch… Cruising browns on the lake edge..

Smoked brown trout 20 minutes after coming to the net, and a cold Speights… keeping it real in the wakatipu.
