PRESS RELEASE: King Tide Salt Fly is official!

King Tide Salt Fly is based in Tauranga, New Zealand, and has access to some of the best harbour fishing within New Zealand. Typically our season runs from October until May with outstanding fishing in the warmer summer months.

Join me as we target New Zealand’s premier sportfish on fly. Kingfish, snapper, kahawai and trevally all present different challenges to the fly angler and make for a great alternative to the fantastic freshwater fishery we have on offer.

The boat is a custom fitted FC430, purposefully arranged to allow 360 degree casting on an uncluttered platform. Equipped with a Minnkota iPilot electric motor, we can creep into the shallows and target fish foraging on the flats over the high tide period. It’s a visual, exciting and frantic style of fishing which get adrenalin levels racing.

Your skipper has completed vigorous training and certification, which ensures a safe and professional experience for clients. The vessel is fully surveyed to Maritime New Zealand standards and has all the required safety equipment.

I look forward to showcasing a unique side of fly fishing.
