Marlborough & Nelson Heli Fishing

The Nelson and Marlborough regions reputation as two of the best trout fishing areas means it is a magnet for serious fly fishing

Tasman Helicopters can give you access to some of the most renowned rivers and streams in the area. From our Branch, Nelson and Marlborough bases we have great brown and rainbow trout fishing options.

We recommend you take one of our professional fishing guides if you really want to increase your chances of that once in a lifetime fish. We use John Gendall www.johngendallflyfishing.com. John is locally based and between him and the Tasman helicopter team they know where the best fishing will be for the time of year and conditions.
