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.

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

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 - 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.

Kia ora,
My name is Chris Donaldson. Been fishing a long while.....mainly salt water...just the norm king fsh/marlin/great whites/Blue whales.  K might be lying as I live in Christchurch and we dont get blue whales off the peir Grin

Seriously though I gave fresh water a crack last season....caught sweet F-A but m picking it has something to do with fishing most on the vehicle access spots. Something needs to be done about them city slickers taking all the eqsy fish so I can get some Grin

Ive just started getting into the Hunting side of things at the moment and with the crap winter that its been havent done much fishing lately...bring on the KY!!!

Hi!  I thought I'd introduce myself here.  I'm not overly knowledgable about fishing but my 10 year old wants me to learn as he's really into it already.

I used to go trout fishing in Kent and Sussex in the UK with my brother who owned a fishing shop.  I miss those days, so peaceful by the river.

I hope you don't mind a newbie joining up and commenting, please excuse my ignorance, I've got lots to learn :0)

Graham from the Hawkes Bay. Only been spin fishing but have got a fly rod now and learning to use it. Middle age spread is slowing down the hunting so thought I'd give fly fishing a go. Used to surf cast years ago but the coastal fishing around here is shite, too many trawlers workin too close. Any how great forum, plenty of free advise, great people too.  Cool

Names Hamish, live in Dunedin, just started fresh water fishing in 2007. I did fish when a kid but couldn't sit still long enough.
I mainly fish the lower Clutha with my brother in law. we enjoy fishing,drinking and camping the night on the river bank
My fishing is a bit like my hunting.... I dont catch much.
Last years open season I caught nothing!!!! Brother in law caught the limit and still return heaps! we used the same lure and where more or less beside each other fishing.
If anyone else is intersted in the overnighter thing, more than welcome. PM me sometime.

Kidday duck kila

A few around here who would have liked their parents to named them that

There are a couple of roundups and advice threads in the fresh forums for Rotorua and Hamilon areas that the guys keep a eye on for what is happening in those areas.

Upstream lives down the road from his favourite stream and is always worth catching up with if your looking for more tips for the waikato area

Hi Buck - spent a few months chasing fish on lake LBJ. Gotta love texas such a great part of the world. But boy are you in for a culture shock we aint much like you texan boys Cheesy  


Have missed a few others introducing themselves recently but great to have you all aboard and look forward to hearing whats happening in your area

Names Andrew, 21, live in Welly. My dad brought me up on fly fishing and I would put myself into the 'life's not worth it without fly fishing' category. My old man has been fishing all his life and lived in Christchurch for most of it so, we do a lot of trips down there to fish the high country lakes. Fish all over Wellington, all over the Wairarapa, Wainui etc. Just made our first central North Island Trip this year which was well overdue.
Favor the dry if I have the option, contrary to the old mans nymphing beliefs.
Anybody ever wants someone to fish with round the lower north island I'd be happy to go out.  Smiley

Suppose I should introduce myself as well then!!

I am Kane from Hamilton.

I have been fishing for as long as I can remember, my haunts when I was younger were Salisbury Wharf and the Stone Jetty under the Mount. A sabiki suspended under a float used to kill em there!!

I took up flyfishing after attending a course run at a local high school in about 2004ish - I was hooked (now thats a crap pun  Cry)

I fish mainly the Waikato streams with Upstream - but sounds as if a few trips further abroad are planned for this summer. The occasional trip to Rotorua with the father in-law and his boat also in the mix.

Oh and chase a few Marlin over the summer - have only been briefly attached to one out behind the Aldermans, it was the scariest 15 seconds of my life!! Maybe this year for that one

Admittedly I have been a bit slack on fishing over the past 12 months but it seems as though I have caught the bug again and cant wait for the season to open in a few weeks

Cheers in advance for all the help you much more experienced heads (read - older  Tongue) are bound to provide me with in the future

Hi all,
I am Aussie based flyfisher. My main thing is backcountry fishing, both here in remote Australia and other far flung places. new Zealand has to be my favourite place though. I work there three times a year and when I do my november stint, I always stay an extra 12 days and head out somewhere remote. Last year I spent a feew eeks in the lewis PAss area and got a few 10LB plus fish. This late november I'll be trecking into the upper ngaruroro/oamaru area in the north island. Can't wait!
Favourite river in the south - the oreti - four fish last trip to the upper reaches - but all over 7 lbs. BEautiful river.
Best wishes all,
Joohn

Fly fishing is a bit like that ladyfisher - more blokes than women fishing.

You will notice that us blokes dont mind women anglers

Mind you I wont allow a good mate of mine to bring his girlfriend along to my secret spot. She would be bound to spill the beans as to where it is.

Plenty more room on the river for women anglers.

Its the same in sweden, but the women are fighting back
now and have made a special club "fjällorna" where only
women is allowed. They orginazie fishing tripps, seminars, casting courses, flytying courses (me and a mate are the teacher).
I think that they have over 250 members and they are growing fast
in numbers. Maybe something for the NZ women also?

Yes, that is my idea to get an NZ womens club started but not sure how to go about it. My partner and I have just been to Alaska fishing for silvers and we joined a trip to Cordova ran by the Alaskan womens fly fishing club, they have lots of trips, and courses like you mention.
Tight lines,
Just off to see how the Ohau channel is fishing in Rotorua

My name is John, (Called JT by my mates) and have fly fished for as long as I can remember. Live in Taupo but, believe it or not, mainly fish more towards Hawkes bay in the Summer. Love to fish in the salt but mainly use soft baits there... occasionally throw a fly at Kahawai and king fish.

Mainly lurk, in fact this might be my first post... can't remember....

Ladyfisher, let me know what you decide to do and I am happy to help get the word out there. Friends and I have been discusssing starting the club of all clubs, kind of think, where our meetings are held maybe quarterly at destinations around NZ, where we can meet, fish, bring in speakers etc.

Two of the best flyfishers I have met are women. Sarah, pictured below could throw curves, switches, hooks and many other presentations with deadly accuracy, as well as fire off 90' or so of line on the grass with ease. Wind didnt bother her at all, and she caught a fish or two along the way. Shes a guide in Colorado and lives for flyfishing.

Thanks Chris, great photos of the girls, unfortunately I am not that young or good looking but have caught some superb browns, 4-6lb in the Hautapu at the beginning of the year on a dry fly which is my favourite fishing.
I am thinking I will join the Rotorua fishing club and see if there are any ladies there that may be able to help me on my mission. The other thought was to send out a letter to all the fly fishing clubs in NZ and see if I can get interest from ladies that way too. I do see other women when we are fishing around the Rotorua lakes so will make a concerted effort to ask them if they would be interested in a club. I do know 2 women from the Auckland club and the three of us have fished together on the western bays of Taupo during summer, so am hoping to catch up with them and see what they think.
I have plenty time on my hands at present but with fishing season now upon us we will be out and about soon.
Supposed to be meeting up with Rickyt for that free guided trip on the 12th Oct at Turangi.
Cheers,

Hi Ladyflyfisher
My wife is also a keen flyfisher, and my constant fishing buddy.  She can throw tight curves with the best of them, and also is a good spotter.
Trouble is fishing is best done as a team, so I dont want her taking off without me on a girls trip.
cheers

Hi  flyboy, yes me and the other half work well as a team but us ladies can enjoy ourselves without the men around sometimes, can't we? You could just ask her if she would be interested in joining a ladies fly fishing club though, just for me to get some feedback from another lady!  Huh Cheers

Hi LFF

Have tried getting women groups into fly fishing many times over the years

Most come along with their husbands. Years later the husbands are still fishing and the women have lost interest

A good friend of mine from the states wrote a book on women fly fishing anglers, has represented the USA team in fly fishing. For many years she worked hard in getting women anglers into the sport.

Alan might beable to tell use if Carol Harwood is still guiding in Turangi. She was always such a neat lady
The keenest women angler has to be Stella at the Tauranga Taupo and a great angler to catch up with

LFF - how are you with the 5am starts

Well trouttraveller don't they say that 'the early bird catches the worm' or trout in this case!
Yes, I could see older women wanting to spend time with the grandkids etc. rather than fishing, thats why I haven't any kids!
Our guide in Alaska, on our recent silver salmon trip, is a well known lady by the name of 'Pudge' Kleinkauf she writes books on womens fly fishing, guides numerous trips in America, had cancer 25 years ago and is now 72 and still going strong.

Hi, I'm Andrew.

I live in CHCH, been here for 5 years and before that I lived in Nelson.

I have fly fished for about 16 years now, since I was 12 years old.
I fish anywhere from the top of the south, through to south canterbury.
If anyone is keen for a day out from CHCH then give me a yell... most of my fishing mates are too busy these days and it's good to go out with someone else occasionaly.

I am getting back into the trout fishing after many years doing other things. I have lived in Rotorua for over 30 years and been visiting for many more before then.
My grandparents lived / worked at Lake Rotoehu (Tuniecliffe's Sawmill closed for many years now) so was raised on trout fishing, duck shooting, deer stalking and pig hunting.

Over the years I have fished most of the lakes and a few of the streams in the area.
Te Awa camp on the Rangitaiki was a favourite when I first moved to Rotorua. My son has followed in the family footsteps and now supplies the venison.
I am married with 2 grown up children, daughter in London and son and his family in Golden Springs.
Cheers

Hi I am Nick Brown I am a fulltime firefighter in Christchurch.
I have just started hunting and missed out on my first deer the other day.
I am also a mad keen salmon fisherman and enjoy the salmon season very much. Having a jet boat and 4 days off each week is brillant.
I am more than happy to take anyone who might be interested in salmon but for whateva reason is having a hard time getting on to them.
Or perhaps I could do a trade for hunting leasons lol.

I'm Lionel been fly fishing for years, and have started shooting the odd animal. Get out fishing as much as I can, which isn't nearly enough. If anyones keen for a splash on a weekend round christchurch let me know. Normally have room to squeeze someone in the boot. So long as you don't warm up the beers.

Demons Slayed- Couple of Rainbows topping 10lb and a few browns over 10lb. 22lb Snapper, 38lb Kingi.

Current Employment - Student at Otago.

Favorite Spot - Waiiti Stream Mouth.

Jonathan - aka Scottrods.

35odd. Live near ChCh. Full time job is at Hamilton Jet, Production Engineer supporting Industrial Jet controls. Share my fishing addiction with 2 young kids both into their active sports etc and my wife's scrap-book hobby.

I enjoy tying flies and Fly fishing, though I will use the spinning rod if conditions dictate it.

Also a member of the Canterbury Fly Fishing Club. We've had Simon Chu, Stu, Clark Reid and some others for a talk at the club. About 140 members incl ladies at the club. Lots of local personalities there too. Check it out on www.cantafly.com.

I enjoy Canty High Country lakes and some small streams mainly for my fishing but have been spotted in Southland poaching the local rivers during a hatch.  Cheesy

Hey guys,

My name is Jack and I'm a trout-aholic. This affliction caught me many years ago and I feel it is not an addiction I can shake. I'm at Canterbury Uni part way through Law and Arts degrees. I've done a fair bit of saltwater fishing in the Wellington region, but fresh water is my passion. I've fished a lot in the Wellington region and am just starting to learn a bit more about the Canterbury fishing scene. My main issue is a lack of transport, so if any of you guys are heading off on a trip and have a spare spot then I'd jump at the chance (+ supply the beers!). I enjoy tying flies, although I'm not fantastic at it.

Hope to catch up with some of you guys for a fish or a beer.

Jack

I live in the sunny Hawkes Bay and fish my local rivers as much as I can. Would say my home river is the RUAKITURI. Have access to a house on the river so try and get up there as much as posible.



Back country fishing as good as it gets........but its a day and half walk out!!!!

If anyone is interested in staying in the house you can PM me.

Happy fishing see you out there!!!

Richard, aka Iceman, aka RTR, aka cross dresser trying out for the silver ferns.

Getting a bit long in the tooth, actually nah I dont have any teeth.

Wonganooey, Wanganui, Whanganui, Fonganooey, you choose.

3 Rsole boys who only want to fishnhunt, no idea of putting work first.

One scary 53kg bolt of lightning meaner than a rednose pitty misses
 
I try to balance = hours with the misses, with = hours in the Bush and with my Rod in my hand. The missus keeps telling me that with my poor maths (time management) skills I will always have my rod in my hand longer than most.  Smiley

Andrew here, I have the mis fortune of being Cleaky's brother...  In my spare time (or stolen time...) I can be found packing a Beretta Exrema in the swamp, a Savage 7mm08 in the bush or a beaten up old CD rods 5/6 in any likely looking piece of water.  Sometimes the bath if I havent been out fishing for a while and need a quick fix...  I have been away in the UK for the last 4 years and at present am struggling for enough time to fit in all the fishing and hunting that I want to do.  Snuffit tells me that its not a race but I'm yet to be convinced....  Wink

Just moved to the Tron for a job.  First time I have lived in Te Waikato so if anyone has anything to teach me about the local area and its rivers/hills, or even which forum members to avoid  Wink I would be muchly appreciative.

Mate wouldnt be fair to give away anymore details than that on the WWW  Smiley Smiley.
But if you can find the spot mentioned its well worth a fish right now.
Im thinking heading that way over the weekend. Will be google earthing the area friday evening with a mate and taking the kayaks. From there we will go exploring

Hi my names Caleb ryder
and absolutely love fishing and hunting i live in ohoka north of christchurch and am lucky enough to live across from a small springfed creek which is full of cunning browns .My family come from balclutha and and the caitlins is my favourite area to target trout i dont have a flyrod because i have learned how to use my spinning rod to float flies in my local creek by  using the current.

Hi I'm Peter

Based in Wellington and been here for 2 years. Originally from Scotland, brought up fishing lochstyle for trout on Loch Leven and for Salmon and seatrout in various rivers (particularly the far north).

Had 2 years en route to NZ in Sydney where the fishing took a back seat but delighted to back into it here. Try to get out most weekends and have explored various streams around the region and in the Wairarapa.

Enjoy the variety of posts on the site - keep it coming!

Hi guys, I'm Mike Smiley

Brought up in the South Island in Dunedin, Christchurch and Picton ...... I now live in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. I run a wee trout fishery offering fly fishing from boats on a small lake and when I can escape, I love to fish our local River Don for brownies Wink ...... I'm also a bit of a fly line geek! Grin

Best wishes
Mike

Hey everyone, im Richard from Taranaki. I have fished for trout since i was 5, but have only fly fished for the last 3 years and am now mad about it! I spend the majority of my time fishing the infinite number of small streams flowing from mt Taranaki. It seems to be a very underrated and under fished area, iv only seen 3 other anglers over the 3 years on MANY fishing trips! Also I love the Lake taupo river mouth rip fishing, especially the western bays area. I love fishing the rips at night, its a world of its own!

It's been a long road but the end is in sight. Our container is being packed on the 29th and we hop on a plane on the 7th April, landing in Westport on 9th April!

The rest of our lives is upon us!  Grin Grin

Hi all

I am an Aussie. There, I said it. Some say I went "against" the flow by moving from the GC to Wellington, but rather happy I did. Love my fishing but the world of fly is fairly new to me. I have a beginner's setup and try to get out when I can. The only success I have had to date is in lake Rotoiti and Tarawera- have struggled in the Wellington region. I recently joined this forum to hopefully change all that! Roll Eyes

There is some great info in here and I look forward to being a part of this community! I have also decided to join Wellington Fly Fisher Club. Any other members out there?

Cheers

I think it may be time to introduce myself

My names Jack, I'm a 17 year old high school student. I moved down to wanaka from Christchurch for the year to attend school and indulge myself in a few extra ciricular activities Wink. I started fly fishing when I was 9 but over the last few years I have been lucky enought to receive a fair bit of knowlege that has made me a better fisherman and a better caster Smiley

Hi ! Names Kevin I live at Katikati BOP. Not fly fished for years now though I still have 5 x Rods and 6 x Reels loaded with airflo lines. Used to tie my own nymphs, buzzers, lures etc,etc.
I was brought/Dragged up in Yorkshire UK and fished many waters around the country, The main ones been Rutland Water and Grafham Water Fishing mainly a team of three over the front of the boat Traditional style. Though there is nothing better in my books than a team of three Buzzers or Nymph/Emergers fished on a long line in the ripples from the bank.
You should just about be bored to tears now. Wink

Cheers

Kevin

Hi all,
Manuel here from Rotorua. I moved here from New Mexico USA. Not very much trout fishing where I come from so never tried fly fishing until a year go. Did alot of bass fishing back home and its helped me lots with the fly fishing. Been here for almost 6 years now and am loving it. Anyone up for a fish around the Rotorua area just give me a yell.

Well I should play the game I guess....

I am on this forum primarily for the arguments about training gundogs, but sometimes they get boring and I would rather argue about trout fishing.

I started flyfishing when I was 10 years old... that's 36 years ago...  Angry

At 14 I started tying flies commercially and started my own fly-tying business. At seventeen I was delivering flies to a lodge who were short a guide and asked me to take their client fihsing. We went and my client caught more fish  than the "Pro-guides" clients..t hat was at Solitaire Lodge at Lake Tarawera. From there I went to Waikato River Lodge and met Randall Kaufmann who mentored me and put me on the right track. I then guided for Huka Lodge but left (following a woman) to the Wairarapa and guided there for a few years. I got an offer from Heli-Sika, a Helicopter company to be their guide and stayed with them for five years. I then broke up a relationship with another woman and headed back to my hometown of CHCH where I spent 7 years as a musician supplementing my income with guiding on the high country rivers, lakes and tarns of Canterbury.  Poronui Ranch made me a very attractive offer to come back as one of their senior guides in 2001 and I did and then later took on the role of Product Development manager for Umpqua Feather Merchants for a couple of years. I gave up guiding and got addicted to saltwater fly and moved to be closer to the ocean.

I now live in the Bay of Plenty and fish primarily for Kingfish, Mako's, Snapper, Trevally, Kahawai and anything else I can convince to take a fly but still do a handful of freshwater trips a year. I train gundogs for a living, sing for my supper and write a lot about fishing but rarely guide anymore.

I have been an Umpqua Signature Tier for about 16 years, a member of TEAM SAGE for about 10 (associated with the brand for 20) and basically live breath and revel in life in the fantastic NZ Outdoors.

I was the youngest ever member of the NZPFGA and was wise enough to find a woman who loves to run petrol stations so her boss and I can go fishing together a lot!!!!! (She still makes me do at least two shifts a week in the Katikati site so if passing through check the name badge of the goon selling you gas... if it says CLARK... talk fishing to me baby!!!!) We have a partnership in a fishing business in Katikati, my dog training business, I write about gundog training and fishing and fly tying and am still associated with SAGE, UMPQUA and RIO...

Life is a good time I have no plans to waste.......

Oh yeah... I'm an FFF certified casting instructor..... Embarrassed

Ill hava go to then!

i been fly fishing since 9, I love the spinrod just as much, if not to a degree moreso!

I lived on the rivers edge of the motueka growing up, and spent every waking moment there, Ive salmon fished since I was 12 and spent every summer holiday growing up at the rangitata river, and still return to this day!
Im just getting into saltwater fly, and have landed some great Albies thus far, and aspire to catch a Big bluefin on the fly (impossible).
Im into hunting a reloading as much as the former!

I began some guiding when i was still at school at aspired to do this as a career, but when leaving school I ended up on commercial fishing boat, I crewed for a year before my skipper decided I was a special little boy and left me to it as skipper on my 18th birthday. I specialize in long lining, trawlings for gimps!
I did the business and Ive never looked back, and am now off to school to sit my NZOM to make the move to the big boats ( bring on my big comfy skipper cabin Cool ).

this new moves gonna give me way more time for my hobbies as its a 2 weeks on 2 weeks off outfit, so looking forward to way more fishing this year!

My names not bob by the way!

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.

Well, I am Norton Webber from the States and I am saddened to read that the 'fender beater," Ron Todd passed away. I hope the moderator reads this so I can relate about my experiences with Ron and Betty. I was in NZ twice in '86 and my wife and I visited in '94  and have so many fond memories to share.

Hi I'm Fred.
I live in Omakau (where the hell is that!!!) in Central Otago.
I'm a total amateur when it comes to freshwater fishing, and one of those lower class plebbs as I still fish with a spinner. It's fun and I don't appologise either.

Hi, I'm Scott. I'm over from Scotland studying at Otago uni until July 2011. I've been here 3 months and have been out starting to explore different rivers a good bit. I've been fly fishing for a couple of seasons now and earlier this year passed my GAIC casting instructors test in the UK.

I hope I can meet some new folk and pick up some new ideas on flies and methods and the likes during my time here.  Wink

Assume it's Ikemalpass from flyshop? Welcome to the darkside. Things aren't quite so formal here (which can be a good thing at times), and there's heaps of great debate and discussion. Not to mention lots of shit-stirring. Smiley

Hi. Name's Ru, am 25 and a pom, but live in Wanaka - have been here for the last couple of years. I have been fly fishing since I was very young, but kind of had a big gap without fishing before I came to New Zealand due to how prohibitively expensive it is in the UK. Being here has definitely rekindled my love for the sport. Fish pretty much only C&R.
I'm a snowsports photographer in the winter (http://www.ruvophoto.com) and am currently unemployed but loving it haha.

Welcome aboard Ru. Look forward to seeing some of your photography! You're in the right part of the world for both the fishing and the snowsports.

Hello All , Awesome site you have got going here Smiley I have been lurking for a couple of weeks and decided I would join the madness .

My name is Paul , 28 years old and keen as fisherman.

I grew up in Otago and could probably name likely spots on most of the rivers and lakes in the area . I know the Tairei like the back of my hand and have had two 10lb trout out of it . I have moved to Canterbury about 4 years back and am now at the bottom of the rung for spots .

My kids are starting to leave me alone now as they grow up so I have a bit more time to sneak out and have definitely caught the fishing bug again Smiley

Catch you all around  Cool

By growing up I meant they are not completely helpless babies . They have graduated to annoying walkers . They can now reach the pantry door handle so I figure I can leave them for a few days at a a time now Smiley

Hi guys/girls,

I live in Balcairn, North of Christchurch. Love the outdoors and do some hunting, fly fishing in salt and fresh water, fly tying, and diving.

Enjoy tramping for trout, or fishing off the coast or boat for another species on the saltwater fly.

Have not managed to catch a decent size salmon on the fly yet but should be able to chase that goal in 2011.

Been lucky enough to have fished in many countries and to catch a variety of species on stillwaters and rivers. My most enjoyable catches have been to hard to tempt fish with a home made fly.

I life on a small farm with my wife and nearly 8 year old son.

Look forward to share some war stories with you one day, have heaps where the big only just got away...

Cheers,
rob
  

I started feeling old. Then picked up hunting. Now I just feel sore most of the time. Slowly getting younger though.

Hello Paul,

Most of my possies are unfortunately also down Otago way...

If you feel like exploring some rivers up here feel free to send me a message.

Welcome mate, glad to see you got imageshack working Smiley. Thats a cracker of a fish and I'm sure he put up an awesome fight out of the "yak" A fishing buddy I know, catches a few out of his kayak off the coast down here Cool.+ I use a similar kayak to yours and catch a trout or two out of it each year. Sounds like you got the salmon sorted anyway Grin.
