This looks like a good run. I should get one out of here if I'm careful, I'll get one from each side of the centre current. Don't be too eager, short casts up this near side first. About half a metre to the left of the main current is where my line needs to be. ...continue reading Busmans Holiday


Explore further, fish longer is apt when it comes to Riverworks gear, clearly the guys who came up with this had been fishing where I was about to go, the wild back blocks of Hawke’s Bay. Leaving in sunshine to be greeted with a coolish overcast day and a forecast promising light but continual rain ...continue reading Back Country Hawke’s Bay


Having recently become part of the Riverworks Pro team I've been keen to try out the new gear. I've done a few local solo trips to the river but have not really had anything to test the gear.  Other than being very comfortable and functional I had nothing of note to comment on.  A few ...continue reading All hail the new X Series Jacket

This November I returned to the North Island for a week fly fishing the Hawkes Bay region with Peter Godfrey. We explored sections of the Rangitikei, Taruarau and Ngararoro Rivers, camping at many spectacular places. We predominately caught Rainbows around 45 and 55cm lengths along with the occasional Brown. I was impressed with the speed ...continue reading Fraser Perry – Hawkes Bay


This jacket is one serious piece of kit – it looks the part, and performs completely. Hiking and wading hours on end whether it’s New Zealand’s backcountry or Australia’s high country streams, inclement weather is always a challenge, but it’s never going to be an obstacle. Made with 3 layer HydrafuseTM PacTough fabric, this is ...continue reading Riverworks X Series Wading Jacket – Let’s Sum It Up


This year I had the privilege of fishing in the 20th New Zealand One Fly competition held in Hawke’s Bay which was a highly successful and enjoyable event. The New Zealand One Fly competition is a friendly tournament based on the original One Fly competition in Jackson Hole, USA. Contestants have three days to fish ...continue reading Fraser Perry – 20th New Zealand One Fly Competition


Earlier in November I explored the Geehi, Upper Swampy Plains and Murray Rivers in NSW with Eddie Savkovic. Contrary to conditions on the more popular rivers in the Snowy Mountains, these rivers had good numbers of fish and offered enjoyable fishing. Warm temperatures, an abundance of insects and feeding fish made for a satisfying weekend ...continue reading Fraser Perry – Southern Snowies


Last weekend I explored two new alpine waters in the Snowy Mountains with Tumut local Trent Jeffrey. We fished the Tumut River and its tributary the Goobagandra River which both produced a few Rainbow and Brown Trout for us. These rivers aren’t quite as far as the more well-known streams in the Snowies, but offer ...continue reading Fraser Perry – New alpine waters
