So who are we  all?

So I like to know to whom I am talking, so who are we all?

Im Chris Dore, based in Queenstown and I would class the Mataura as my home water - or rather the one on which I like to spend the most time. I like the challenges of the Mataura - you can take it however you feel: on lazy days I can throw nymphs through the ripples for a bit of fun, and if I am up for it, I can hit those glassy glides and foam lines for choosy trout requiring technical presentations.

Chris

Im Andrew Perring

Live in the big smoke so take advantage of the great snapper fishing on my doorstep

My favourite rivers are full of trout and dont get to see another angler. I am happy to cast a dry or nymph to spotted / feeding fish.
Enjoy getting out on the North Island lakes for a trolling session with my friends. My new passion is drifting and stripping flies, a very fast and exciting form of fishing

Have travelled a number of palces. I few highlights includ - tigers in Africa, Sailfish in Western OZ, Marlin in Vanuatu, Salmon in Alaska, Bass in USA.

Have guided grizzly bear, trout, pike, salmon in Alaska and trout for many years in NZ.

Chris - I got married in my waders at lake Waikaremoana - with fishing rod in hand.

One of my most memorable days fishing was last year. Spent the day drifting and stripping flies with the fish biting hard. When Nick Foster paddles out with a hand full of christmas mince pies and drops them on my lap for lunch.

It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

Grin I even caught a fish or two. Unlike Andrew 'The Driftnet' Perring who cleaned up with maybe 50+ fish that day. I'm Nick, I fly fish for everything from trout to marlin (haven't scored one of those just yet on fly) and shoot gamebirds as often as they fly past.

Chris, I'm still waiting for you to get up to Auckland for a casting clinic, I'm certain that it would be worth everyone's while. Please don't force me to fly to Queenstown, it's horrible down there with the pristine lakes, scenery....

Hi, Im Mark Brown.
I live at Ohope, in the mostly sunny Bay of Plenty.  Both my wife and I love our trout fishing, the best of all being the more remote waters of our region.
My next favourite region is Southland, where we make an annual pilgrimage each season.
As an idea, how about some of the members doing a fishing swap with other members.  We would be happy to host another member in our region, in return for reciprocal deal? Its just the kernel of an idea, any suggestions?
Bring on Oct 1st.

I think thats a great idea. Have seen the idea of a fly swap put in place and that works well

Never heard of a Fishing Swap but reckon its a cracker of a idea.

G'Day all.
Baz here from sunny Gisborne. But not today, it's pissing down and we have had more than our fair share of rain during the spawning season. Gday flyboy how did your Whakatane river trip go? Did you find that the jetboat traffic actually improved the fishing?
As always I will fish the top end of the Motu and the Opato stream come opening day-and leave the Ruakituri river to everyone and their canine companions. From what I've heard from local anglers the Ruakituri has had a fair bit of high and dirty water sluicing down it over the spawning period-so only time will tell how well the new batch of trout have survived.
Always a pleasure to meet  and chat to brothers of the angle on this site---Good luck with the coming season--tight lines-and avoid getting your rod caught in your fly.  Smiley

Hi Mike
Thats a nice snapper-well done. Sure Mike, we could arrange a day on the river sometime during the season-keep in touch.
Cheers baz.

Gidday.
NIk is my name and basically all I ever do is play with fish. I look after fish and sharks at Kelly Tarltons and chase fish of any sort on my days off and after work as often as I can. Have been fly fishing for 20 odd years mostly on the northern half of the north Island but did spent 7 years in Nelson so explored a far bit of that as well. Have fished New calidonia Bone fish to Kazhakastan Pike and a few others in between.
I take my fishing time seriously but find it a wee bit hard to take the fishing itself too serious. I think fishing is a bit of an art but not too much of a science, Smiley after all fish have tiny brains, you just have to get them put your hook in thier mouth. Smiley
