Unlike most Kiwi Fly Fishermen, I was brought up on a diet of Lake-Edge stalking. In fact it was a few years of of fishing before I ever threw a fly into a river. My old man has been an avid fly fisherman for as long as he can remember, so as soon as I was old enough he had a rod in my hand.
These days I spend a most of my fishing time exploring the Rivers of the North Island. During the season I fish as much as I can. Most nights of the week I'm out on the local rivers and on the weekends I try to travel and explore as much as possible. I still consider my trips to the South Island High Country twice a year, as the highlights of my season however, the snowy mountains and cruising brownies can't be beat.
As well as fishing I am a really keen Duck Shooter and Deer Stalker so all of my free time is spent outdoors. In early 2012 Rob offered me a job in the website/marketing section of the company and I am loving working for a group that makes great gear, designed for real fishermen, by real fishermen.
