Multi-Day Remote Wilderness Camp Out - Helicopter Access to Wilderness Area Boundary

Some areas are so wild and remote that you can only legally fly to the boundary, and hike the long way in. Fish the Tasman Wilderness Area with Zane for an unparalleled wilderness adventure. Rough jungle travel, giant boulders, incessant sandflies, and potentially flooding rivers. AND then you have to retrace your steps and walk out. You'll have to carry your own gear on your own back so strict age, fitness, ability, and mobility conditions apply. No whiners or soft-cocks allowed.

"Zane, what a KILLER adventure you provided for us. In terms of the setting, logistics, and the subject matter (5-6lb average trout) this trip was a lifetime experience to be savoured and replayed over and over. I can't imagine a better thing for a father and son who love adventure to share together. Baxter and I will never forget watching those multiple 6 pound browns taking dries in a clear emerald pool of energy-filled water" Dr. Joe Roberson, USA, 2007.

Nelson Lakes National Park Fishing – Commercial Boat Access

Fish some of the purest sight-fishing rivers in the world with Zane Mirfin.
