Recommended Gear for River Haven Lodge, New Zealand

Located in Kahurangi National Park, River Haven Lodge is centrally located in the top of the South Island of New Zealand on the banks of the Mangles River, giving you access to over thirty rivers by car and another twenty rivers by helicopter. River Haven Lodge works with the four helicopter companies who literally land only steps from your cabin, to fly into this world class trout fishery. The lodge offers river front luxury log cabins with world renowned fly fishing guides at their specialty Brown Trout fly fishing luxury lodge. With views of Mt Olympus & Mt Owen (filming location for Lord of the Rings) the Lodge is in a peaceful location where you will awaken to the birds and the soothing sounds of the Mangles River.

Owned and built by Scotty “The Trout” Murray and his wife Leya, the River Haven Lodge provides the ultimate in fly fishing luxury. Scott, having spent over twenty years guiding, and Leya spending much of the same period as a meeting/event coordinator for Pepsi Cola, know how to provide both a great fishing experience and hospitality for their guests. We at Wild On The Fly have selected River Haven Lodge as it’s what we feel is truly a bucket list destination.
