Go ninja, go!

Bob Ciulla and I have been fishing every day mixed in with a bit of travel. The fishing is a little bit tougher than Bob remembers, his last visit being ten years ago. The other day we saw a massive brown trout feeding on the surface, and swinging below gorging himself on nymphs. I wanted […]

Fishing with Nick Clark

Bob Ciulla and I are loving life at the Clark residence. We are currently in Queenstown again, and have fished a day until the weather turned for the worst yesterday. Nick Clark is a great guide down here in Southland, and has been for 20 years. He knows these rivers very well and has offered […]

Some type of way

Fishing in New Zealand requires a higher order of stream craft, more than any other type of fishing. And usually it helps to have a friend to take pictures and furthermore help spot fish while on the water. Well I dont have any friends. So I have to be resourceful and do everything on my […]

Arrival in New Zealand

Its always a long flight to New Zealand, and no matter how long or short your trip anywhere,  you learn to change your thoughts. Luckily I flew Air New Zealand, and they really took care of me. For dinner I had the choice of either chicken or beef and you know what? I ordered them […]
