Hi
Gday flyboy how did your Whakatane river trip go? Did you find that the jetboat traffic actually improved the fishing?
Baz the Whakatane went well, but is a sight fishery for the best fish, you need a sunny day for best results. A mixture of mainly rainbows, but a few nice Brownies as well.  Nothing large in the upper reaches but a nice fishery on a nice day.
Parts of the upper river are a bit hammered by some guides, and the fishing was noticeably poorer in these areas.
We never saw a jet boat, but the river was very low, which would have kept them out.
There is a lot of horse traffic with the Tuhoe hunters after pork, and venison.  Maybe some crop cultivation as well. I'm told you have to watch where you go in the bush.
Might get to meet you on opening day, would be nice to put a face to the name.
Cheers
Flyboy

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.  
I take my fishing time seriously but find it a wee bit hard to take the fishing itself too serious


Nik - A bill board of your fishing habits was erected at Victoria Park - work 4 days fish 3
What they forgot to ad was your job allows you to fish on a regular basis collecting fish for Kelleys.
I think a wee french girl slows you down from taking your fishing serious

Hi All,

Kev here. I am a flyfishing nut -  think about it, dream about it, write about it, and sometimes even do it. Been flyfishing since 1991, with breaks in between when other outdoor passions took over. Also in the process of getting my firearm license, haven't hunted in over a decade since when I lived in Africa.

I'm based a bit south of Hamilton and fish the Waikato and King Country waters extensively, or rather when the missus says I can.  Embarrassed I am also a keen flytier, although my flies are more in the effective category than the pretty category - chickens peck at anything, hey Nik? Andrew has asked that I provide some periodic updates on the fishing in the Waikato/KC area, so am happy to oblige.

Later
Kevin

Hey Kev

Great to have you onboard

There is so much great hunting information on this site. Amazing what guys get up to and how open people are to share their experience. Such a motivator to get out there and do it!!

I am sure you will have the firearms licence and new rifle sorted in know time.

Kev - look forward to your regular fishing updates from the Waikato area. Everyone here will really appreciate your local knowledge before setting out to the river in your neck of the woods.

Hi Guys

My name is Per-Anders "P-A" Nilsson. I live in stockholm Sweden
but my heart nowadays belongs to the southland. Wink
My primary work is as a secondary school teacher but i also
work part time in the flyfishingsbuisness (Sameo prostaff member, Guiding and Flytying).
I have been flyfishing for 25 years and currently do about 120-140 days
a year including the work related stuff.  Last christmas i was down to NZ and fished
with some of this forums members (Nick Foster and Simon chu)
and next year i will be coming down again since i have been dreaming about
those monster Kingies and Trouts ever since.
Best Regards
P-A Grin Grin

Hey.
Shannon here. Self taught fly fisherman, started 13 years ago. Have done most of my fishing in Canterbury and know most of the water round here pretty well. Spent 2 years in Wanaka so have done a fair bit of fishing in Otago and Southland as well. Hoping to catch my first Salmon this year too. I get a real buzz from exploring new water and watching my fishing mates hook up. Over the last couple of seasons I have been using lighter and lighter tippet with improving results. My best is a 7lb Jack from the Nevis in Otago on 2lb tippet. Got busted of in the Ahuriri with the light stuff a few times though. This years goal is to land a fontanalis.
Nice to meet you lot.

Hi Carl and Shannon

Carl - try and catch up with Thomas W from here he is a great guy. Seems he is always out fishing the top of the Sth Island somewheres.

Back to NZ in time for opening day eh Shocked Shocked Shocked

Hi Shannon - Have you caught up with Chris Dore. President of the Whakatipu fishing club. I believe Chris runs quite a few club trips. Chris has also told me there are some brookies of some sort in your area.

Thomas W had the same goal as you on the brookies last season. Was inspirational when he laid down a great plan and it all came together.

Hey trouttraveller. No I have not met Chris. I moved back to Chch in 2005 from Wanaka. As far as Brook Char go, I'm keen get one this season. I've got access to a crib at Lake Clearwater so intend spending a bit of time at Lake Emily. I reckon I"ll be doing a few more over night missions into the back country. With the price of diesel (I know it's dropping) these days it's hard to justify a day trip. Still, If the Yanks get thing sorted between Georgia and Russia and hurry up and invade Iran well all be sorted for petrol eh?  Grin.
Tell me, anybody caught a Char out of lake Grassmere?

hey guys, my names Scott Turner.
been fishing all my life, you could say its in my blood. Wink
Do all the catergories of fishing there is to be done love my trout fishing but would have to say my passion is salmon fishing. I would class  the Rakaia as my fav water to fish as this is where I spend most of my time from now till the end of the season, starts with the whitebait, then the sea run browns and then start chasing salmon.
