There’s only a few places in NZ that can offer both world class waves & fly fishing in the same day, for myself this the dream location for a long weekend. With all the surfing possible out the way Saturday & Sunday we changed location from beach side to river side without disappointment.
First pool from the car showing a spectacular evening rise which we watch over with dinner and a beer. First light I set out solo up river to find fishing what I thought looked like great water hard work. It was not until I changed up from fishing shallow runs to deeper back eddies is when the fish started playing ball. Coming back to camp with a couple hours later to whitebait fritters cooking summed up what a great weekend it was.
