Hey All, I was back into the Whanganui yesterday with Blake and Damian. These two guys have only recently taken up fly fishing and wanted a back country experience and a few tips to help them along. They had both splashed out and purchased the Sage Z Axis rods and I have to say these […]

Hey All, Over the past three days I have only fished in the late evening. This is a time of the day I don’t get to spend a lot of time on the water and so haven’t had the pleasure of seeing this side of the change of light. The Waitahanui is in fantastic condition, […]

Hey All, I have had a great couple of days on the Waitahanui with fish being pulled from all sections. Yesterday morning I was up early and did the sprint through the top pools. Man the amount of trout spawning just up from Reids was incredible and good to see. I pulled a great Hen […]

Hey All It was the Tauranga Taupo’s turn to be flogged today and although I got there late, (1.00pm) it looked absolutely brilliant. As I was walking in two guys coming back out raved about the fishing so spirits were high! This river has had another turn over and pools have changed once again. The […]

Hey All, The Waitahanui was still a little to high and coloured today for fishing. If you did venture in there big bright Glo Bugs would have been the key to success. Luke came into the shop to buy an indicator and he had picked up one small one. He returned a few hours later […]

Hey All, Great couple of days on the water, the weather has pushed some good numbers of Trout into the Waitahanui and I am sure the other rivers will be the same once the levels drop. I shot over to the Hinemaiaia yesterday afternoon but it was too high and coloured so came back to […]
