  2. Hello Members,
    This may be of interest to fishermen intending to fish Southland New Zealand.
    Have aquired a comfortable cottage close to Mataura river and it’s confluence with Waikaia . Can provide accomodation for 2 fishermen and include breakfast /lunch for the princely sum of $60 per day each. For those who enjoy smoked trout and a cold Speights after big day stalking large brown trout you have found the right location. Many visiting anglers scratch their heads when rain turns rivers brown , but a lovely lake containing Rainbows and Browns is 100 Kilometres away. I have 2 waterstrider float boats which for a price can make lake fishing a truly interesting experience without sinking into the mud.
    For those interested in quality sight fishing please feel free to phone me Mobile 0422594280 or email jdsalmo@yahoo.com.au
    Regards Johannes de Vreeze.

  4. Just a note to say thank you for hosting the 2014 Southern Lights Fly Casting Tournament. I love casting at Southern, which I believe to be the best casting venue in the country, and it is even better under lights. As a competitor, thanks to the Southern members who cater for and administer the event, a first class job at a first class venue.

    Thanks again, and I look forward to my next visit to Southern.

    John

  5. Greetings from New Zealand

    A plea from a NZ fly fisher to any of your members who fish in my country. If they value the experience of clean streams and would like it to continue, they can help by emailing the NZ Prime Minister (who also happens to be the MInister of Tourism). Email address is john.key@national.org.nz

    All they need to say is that they won’t be interested in visiting NZ to fish our waters if dairy pollution continues at current rates. (Irrigation is depleting our waterways, and industrial-scale dairying is ruining what water is left in our lowland fisheries).

    Members will no doubt want to make up their own minds. I suggest they Google “New Zealand dirty dairying” for leads. See also http://garethsworld.com/blog/environment/dairy-dirty-environment/

    Just be prepared to be shocked.

    Tight lines
