HVAC Club Trips

Mangatainoka River - 28-29th November


We will be staying at the Post Office Hotel in Pahiatua, which offers well-priced accommodation and meals.

The Mangatainoka is a lowland river with good numbers of brown and rainbow trout. It has good access and easy fishing conditions. For those members who have not been on a club trip yet, this would be an ideal start.


Pahiatua is a 2 hour drive from Wellington. We will stay on the Friday and Saturday nights and return to Wellington on the Sunday. 

Further details and information will be emailed to those who register for the trip. To secure your accommodation booking, please register no later Monday 16 November.




Get to Know other members and develop your fly fishing skills

There are so many places to fish around the North Island and we do our best to make regular trips for a night or two to various locations. These trips are a lot of fun and feedback from members is very positive. We arrange accommodation and you are responsible for your own food. Sometimes we will pool resources for smaller trips.


Details are usually available a month or two in advance and usually include a Friday to Sunday and are weather dependent, with early bookings essential. Some venues do require a deposit. You can register for trips by using the "Register Now" button above.

You will be sent details prior to the trip. It is essential that you have achieved basic casting skills to make the most of your trip. The club can assist you with casting skills through our regular casting clinics. If you want to join the Fishing Group, check with your casting instructors if they feel you are ready to join.

Join our members only Facebook group. Connect with a fishing buddy, make a post or ask advice
