An Australian chasing trout in New Zealand.

An Australian chasing trout in New Zealand.

Stalk Site Present – 4 days in the Southland NZ By Clay Wells @clayflies   Living in Melbourne Australia, I frequent my local shop ‘ Hurleys Flyfishing‘ and have become friendly with the owner Gavin Hurley. Gavin has recently opened up a shop in Lumsden NZ where he has a holiday home which doubles as accomodation for us fisherman looking for some trophy browns. Trawling through his Facebook posts on NZ, I had to work out a window of when I could get down there and try my luck. Thankfully a 6am direct 3 hour flight into Queenstown, an airport pick up from Gav’s wife Deb and an hour later driving along lakes, rivers and through valleys I am in the midst of trout Mecca. I settled into my room, unpacked my fishing gear and set up my rig. Being so keen I had a little time to kill before Gavin was back from a morning fish to pick me up. I did a quick walkabout tour of Lumsden. A quiet little town with a small skate park, an old train line, the Lumsden Pub, a couple of cafes, supermarket, chemist and of course Hurleys Flyfishing store where you can meet and get local tips and flies from Trevor the store manager. By 2pm Gav had us site casting to some big browns in some backwaters of the lower Oreti River. There had been a little rain the night before and the Barometer had dropped so the fishing was a little tough. The fish were spooky and sitting in close amongst the trees and shadows. It took some Tippett... read more

Voices from the River: Enhance your skills at fishing shows

Voices from the River: Enhance your skills at fishing shows

I grew up on the East Coast and fished a lot of small streams and deep hidden ponds in the White Mountains during my adolescent years. I did do a fair amount of surf casting, but I never developed the need to incorporate a double haul into my casting. This past summer I met up with the Brighton Anglers group to go to Trout Camp in northeastern Saskatchewan, Canada and learned to double haul while there. Now how do I perfect it?
