The Rugby World Cup is
The biggest sporting
event ever to be hosted in New Zealand, the Rugby World Cup, starts
in September. It is expected many tens of thousands of rugby fans
from around the world will descend on New Zealand for the two month
long competiton. If you are intending to come to New Zealand and
wish to go fishing from September to November, we strongly suggest
that you make your bookings now as we are receiving daily requests
from people coming for the tournament asking about where to go fishing
near the venues. It appears many rugby fans are also keen anglers.
And while Christchurch
has been hit hard by the recent tragic earthquakes, visiting anglers
can be reassured that the rest of the Canterbury region and New
Zealand has been unaffected. Christchurch is again up and running,
the fishing lodges are open, the guides still working and the rivers
and lakes are as good as they ever were.

places that are worth investigating
In our newsletters we
are going to feature some of the areas where you will find great
accommodation, guides and of course, superb fishing. This month
we would like to focus on the Buller
region around Murchison. This area of New Zealand has a high concentration
of rivers that provide excellent sight fishing for large wiley brown
trout in crystal clear water.
Lodge which is located on the banks of the Buller River and
a short drive from the Matakitaki, Matiri, Mangles, Owne and Maruia
rivers (to name a few) provides a wonderful centre to explore this
region. This lodge caters for both the the angler and non-fishing
partners and is highly recommended.
And if comfort and
solitude are what you want then take a look at the superb Owen
River Lodge on the banks of the beautiful Owen River. This fishing
lodge is dedicated to the needs of anglers and provides the highest
levels of service including access to the best guides. A superb
location run by anglers for anglers where only the best is good
Rod and Reel are on the
and Reel the iconic Auckland store dedicated solely to fresh
and salt waters angling has moved. It is now located at 480 Broadway,
Newmarket. To celebrate the move to much bigger and brighter premises
there are a number of great moving specials (some well below half
price) and so are worth a look for a bargain.
Ever seen a tiger trout?
And as a final note,
if you are interested in seeing some interesting photos of the rare
tiger trout check out the
photo page on Lake Rotoma where Rod and Reel's resident guide,
Yoshi, has a series of superb photos of a 7lb tiger trout he caught.
These photos are truly amazing. The question is, how did he catch
the fish and photograph it at the same time?
