Fly fishing rugby. What a mix! it doesn’t get much better. Are you an ardent rugby fan? A keen fly fishing angler?  Will you be in New Zealand to see some games? Why don’t you consider doing some fly fishing while you are here? Fly fishing not your thing, then there is some great spin fishing for trout in our area, Queenstown. On the 1st of October 2011 the fishing season opens up for the new season. There’s a lot to be excited about this coming fishing season. Hmm….. I wonder if you could make fly fishing rugby into a new sport somehow. Maybe it could involve tackling the angler at a most inappropriate moment during the course of battle on a big New Zealand trout …..  it could sure making for some funny video footage. Let me know if you have any ideas?

To make the most of your time between rugby matches I have some excellent fishing trips for you to enjoy. For anglers who prefer to spin fish rather than fly fishing I can offer some awesome opportunities to hook into big NZ trout especially during the early season period which is often the most productive time of the season for the spin angler. Here’s a picture from a client I guided who hooked a mighty 10lb trout on light spinning tackle

….. wets the appetite some?

You will of course require a NZ fishing license which you can get online or from a local sports store or outdoors store.  If you are coming out to NZ and are planning some fishing while you are here make sure you check out my pre trip info which will give you some handy info. Feel free to drop me a line if you need any help or would like to make a booking so you can really enjoy your time fishing and watching rugby.
