Utilising your whole catch

Utilising your whole catch

Even if you think you know it, there is a real benefit to respecting what you catch from the moment it comes on board. Too much salt ice, for example, can actually start to part freeze your catch which reduces its longevity. Legasea's Fishcare programme promotes best practice techniques to help recreational fishers reduce their impact on our inshore fisheries.

Pat Swift Jigging Flies

Since the introduction of jigging for trout, this fun and very fruitful method of fishing has made catching trout in lakes a lot more fun than dragging them in on heavy lead lines.

Adventure Fishing the Whanganui River

If you’re anything like me, when it comes to holiday time, the first thing you think is…I wonder if I can take a rod and reel. If it’s a YES, this thought process quickly evolves into some research, and subsequent agonizing, over how much gear, how many lures, what weight line, when you’ll escape and so on. This year, a family escape actually meant escaping the family. Well, the kids anyway. Just my wife, brother, and sister-in-law, all alone on a four day journey canoeing 145 kilometres down the middle reaches of the mighty Whanganui (once Wanganui) River from Taumarunui to Pipiriki. The plan was to canoe the river and stay at the camping and glamping opportunities on offer along the way. Just good outdoor action adventure paddling our way through canyons and the odd rapids. In my mind…surely there would be trout fishing opportunities?
