In my opinion you six guys
put on a great weekend. The difference was that you talked to us
about technique, ideas, theory and water. I have been with a few
guides over the years, I know their aim was to ensure you caught
a fish. I prefer the approach your team took being we will teach
you how to fish, anywhere
Hi Tony, thanks to you and the team for a wonderful
time. I learnt heaps and it has certainly opened my eyes up to a
whole different range of techniques and ways of fishing. Key learnings
for me include staying in closer contact with the flies, better
reading of where the fish lie, how close you can get to the fish
and still catch them.
Teresa and I would like to take this opportunity
to say thank you to yourself and the other guides for the weekend
flyfishing clinic we just attended.
We both found it very informative and fun and
came away with lots of new found knowledge that we would not have
got without the expert guidance of the team. With Teresa being relatively
new to the sport it was a pleasure to watch her confidence and skills
grow as the guys really did put the extra effort into showing her
the ropes in a relaxed and enthusiastic manner. She will be a far
better fly fisherman as will I having attended the clinic.
So please pass on our thanks to the guys for
their efforts and patience.
We are both keen to put into practice all that
we have learned and cant wait to get amongst the trout.
I would certainly recommend the clinics to anyone
wanting to gain an advantage over your average fly fisherman as
we discovered that there is no better way to learn than to fish
with people who know how to fish. Please put us down for the Tukituki
Thanks Tony, I had a great time and the team were extremely helpful.
Gave me plenty to work on.
I appreciate the time and effort it takes to arrange these events
so special thanks to yourself too
Thank you very much for your message.
I really enjoyed the weekend with you guys. I've
learnt a lot and just listening to the comments, thoughts and theories
would have given me more than I expected! The fishing was just the
icing on the cake, well done! Thank you all for your efforts and
I learnt more in those 2 days than I have in
years. After taking the last few years off fly fishing it was the
perfect way to kick start me back into it. So much so that I am
trying to find a way that I can convince my wife that I need to
do another trip back to NZ in early December for the next clinic.
I am now back on the Gold Coast and the collar
bone is still a bit stiff (I might have gone fishing a week too
soon!). But I have my rod with me and some practice line to work
on my casting and knot tying. I am going to email a couple of mates
who I think would be interested in your clinics.
Once again thank you and the team very much, it was a well organised
and very appropriate topic wise for me and I enjoyed meeting you
all. If I cannot make the December clinic (which is not looking
good at this stage) then I'd love to get hold of the notes regarding
lake fishing. I'd be more than happy to pay for them.
