Armed with the latest selection of Hunting & Fishing New Zealand exclusive Daiwa slow jigging combos we experience the Hauraki Gulf at its absolute finest. Settle in for an epic adventure on Auckland's doorstep.

My First Marlin

On a recent road trip to the magic far north, leaving out of Houhora, we managed to capture the hookup and battle of first ever marlin for young Flyn Jack (@ Flyn Jack Fishing) . Truly an amazing experience and a magnificent place to fish from, when you are in big game waters within less than an hour from shore. Take a look at the adventure. Big thanks to Hunstman Boats, and Grant Foster on the deck.

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.

The boys set out to make a educational “best practice” shark fishing video, after a considerable increase in recreational fishermen targeting Sharks. There has also been an increase in accidental Great White Shark captures by recreational fishermen. After some 10 years targeting Bronze Whaler Sharks the boys have only ever seen one Great White Shark and never hooked one while Shark fishing. What takes place completely blows their minds!
