On the Grass!

By Matt Wilson 03/05/2015

 Jack MacKenzie, Hunting and Fishing Manawatu's Fly Fishing expert, professional guide and author of "The Tools of Flyfishing", can also add "Official Groundskeeper" or "Turf Technician" to his fast filling resume of talents.

When Jack heard that he'd be one of the first to cast and test a new super-top-secret Scott Fly Rod prototype, he was ready to roll at 8am with his trusty lawn-mower. The vacant grassy section across the road from Manawatu Hunting and Fishing, makes for a fantastic test casting field and thanks to self-appointed land custodian Jack, the pitch is always perfect! (Perhaps the ICC will be calling for his services in the near future?)

So what is this new super-top-secret project? ........You'll have to stay tuned to find out!

What did Jack think of it?  ...... Just look at the smile!


Go see Jack at the shop, he'll point you in the right direction with anything fly. They have a great range of Scott Fly Rods instore, so check them out and go for a test cast over on The Jack MacKenzie Casting Green.

Don't forget to grab yourself a copy of "The Tools of Flyfishing" - and keep an eye out for his next book "The Tools of Turf Maintenance"
