Monthly Highlights

Below are photos and a story from the recent month's guided fly fishing trips.

January 2013

John is a regular client and it's always a pleasure to welcome him back to Twizel. He stays in our self contained flat. I keep this for my guided clients to ensure there is always accommodation available for them.

Back home John gets few opportunities to cast a fly so he makes up for it when he comes to Twizel and then down in Southland, the second part of his regular "beat"!

"John has a relaxed attitude to his fishing and I'm sure being that way means more success on the water.

I have seen an angler get so worked up after a few dropped fish, missed strikes etc. you could almost sense the increase in blood pressure with each successive cast! That's the time to take a break, have a drink and try and settle the nerves.

In fly fishing, as in life in general, it is rare for everything to go to plan all of the time ............"
