For many people Rotorua
is always associated with crowds photographing steaming mud pools
and geysers. Yet many people do not realise that the lakes around
Rotorua provide some of the most spectacular winter fishing. Many
lakes have limited spawning rivers and the fish that were liberated
when they were not much more than fingerlings return to where they
were released; often as double-figure trophy fish. Those interested
in fishing this area should look at what lakes Rotorua,
in the area have to offer. It is arguably the best trophy rainbow
fishery in the country!
And to make the
most of your time in Rotorua...
Resort lies between lakes Rotorua and Rotoiti. The resort offers
private spacious units (and a great restaurant) making it a great
base to explore the wonderful fishing in the area. There is also
plenty for the non-fishing partner to do also.
For those who are
looking for a guide that really knows the area we highly recommend
Dennis Ward and Miles Rushmer.
Ward will help you find those those special places that only
a person who has fished the region for many years knows about. He
is highly experienced and comes highly recommended by those that
have used his services.
And if you are looking
for someone to put you onto a trophy trout it would be hard to find
a better guide than Miles
Rushmer who manages to put his clients onto huge fish each year.
One of Miles' specialities is winter shoreline flyfishing on the

Zealand Silver Flies team to compete at the World Championships
in Slovenia next year has now been named.
The NZ Fly Fishing team are running a series of clinics catering
for all levels of ability, from beginner to experienced angler over
the next 12 months. The clinics will cover; reading rivers, where
to fish, spotting and casting to fish, flies, leaders, knots, fly
tying and flies types etc. You will learn more in two days than
in you would pick up fishing by yourself in two years. The intention
is to hold clinics in a number of regions depending on demand. There
will be no more than one to two anglers to each team member so there
will be plenty of one-on-one tuition.
To register your interest in these clinics contact Tony@nzfishing.com
Thinking of buying a 4 Wheel
Next time you are on
a river and come across a guide, take a look at what they are driving.
Chances are it will be a Nissan. The reason is that Nissan outdoor
recreational vehicles are built to get you to the river in comfort
and get you home again. Reliability is second to none and when you
have fished the late evening rise on a remote backcountry stream
miles, knowing you can get home again whatever the weather conditions
is very reassuring. To see the impressive Nissan range (and their
special offers) click
