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?

Z Man DarterZ soft bait bodies

I’m a big fan of Z Man soft bait bodies. I’ve used them for many years and found that they are usually my go-to choice, and I’m not alone. The other option is GULP, which are an entirely different proposition, and more recently, Catch and Daiwa entering the market with a very similarly based product to Z Man. That is, a tough, but very stretchy elastomer material in a range of tasty colours.

The Lateral Line: EP #18

The boys make the drive over to the Wild West coast and plan to pitch the tent on the boat and spend a night in the harbour. Snapper are on the hit list as the sun goes down and king fish as the sun comes up. Nato manages to film kings hunting live mullet in 4K 60 frames with his iPhone.

The Lateral Line EP: #17

The boys leave the harbour and head down the coast to shelter from the forecasted wind. Later that day the wind drops out and the nearest island seems like it’s worth a visit. After a few stuff ups Milan lands a couple big beautiful king fish.

The Lateral Lin: EP #16

After a couple years of no fishing, Nato wants to have a crack at catching a king fish on his fly rod. The boys find a pack of ray-riding kingfish and A fly is smashed in what the boys reckon is one of the greatest strikes they have ever seen. Nato manages to catch 2 more solid harbour king fish on live baits that were trailing behind the boat while fly fishing.
