Fly Fishing for Big Browns in South Island New Zealand

With the world in the fierce grip of a global pandemic, there are few places in the world where anglers have the freedom to roam and fish with unrestricted access and companionship. New Zealand is one of the few... Although we miss our international friends and our guiding industry is on it's knees, there is a shining light at the end of a long and gloomy tunnel here - FREEDOM TO FISH! Join myself (Mike Kirkpatrick) and good mate Hans Kreuer, as we embark on a three day trip in search of some large brown trout, with the unsettled spring weather looking to finally relent into some fine days.

NEW Abu Garcia rod review. VERITAS 4.0

VERITAS = VERI TASTY! There are just some products that I know I’m going to buy the moment I see them. As a massive soft bait and lure fishing fan, I love catching decent fish on relatively light weight spinning gear, and when the opportunity arises to upgrade or replace broken gear, it’s a no brainer.

Salty Bay Salt Guard

When you are fishing or boating, there’s one thing that is for sure. Salt is going to get into your gear and cause havoc to expensive fishing rods, reels, boat engines, fittings, trailers, you name it. Here’s a great new product to the NZ market, developed and formulated here in New Zealand by Campbell Banks and Sam Johnston.
