North Island Tiki Tour

In this episode of Pure Fly NZ, Matt Hince joins fellow fly fishing nut Andrew Harding on a camper van, North Island Tiki Tour. The rugged area of New Zealand's lower North Island, just outside Wellington offers a huge variety of fly fishing opportunities, from wide open rivers in gentle farmland, to small streams carved deep into mountain gorges. And it's into one of these steep valleys that they first descend, to find a crystal clear river. The guys opt for 5 weight rods, floating line and long leaders, so as not to spook the fish and a classic kiwi dry-dropper rig enables them to use both drys and nymphs at the same time. They've obviously got their tactics right as Matt catches a beautiful, large wild Rainbow on his first cast. Then its Andrew's turn and he too hooks a large Rainbow. The guys decide to split up to cover more water and both find fish in every pool they reach. As the day brightens up, the fish start to look upwards so the guys switch to single dry flies, again with great success. The steep climb back up to the van doesn't see quite so bad after such a fantastic day. Next morning they travel to find bigger water, Matt has one of those days when nothing seems to go right, Andrew though has another great session bagging a combination of large Rainbows and stunning Brown Trout.
