Member since August 2016

Wanaka, New Zealand

Background
I grew up on a sheep farm and have spent many years of my life enjoying the great outdoor lifestyle that New Zealand has to offer. I have fished since I was a little boy. Fresh water lake and river fishing for trout and I have also spent many years of sea fishing in coastal waters mainly for reef fish. Adventure Wanaka has given me the opportunity to combine the two things I love doing the most. Fishing and boating. I offer lake fishing experiences from trolling, spin and fly fishing around our beautiful lake Wanaka.
Techniques
I spend most of my time trolling on the lake. I use two types of lines. Lead lines and a down rigger for the deeper fish. My rods are very soft allowing maximum feel and excitement for the fisherman. Choice of lures depends on the day and conditions and the recent catch rate of the different colours and types of lures. I will also happily spend time on the lake shore with keen fly or spin fishermen, spotting and tempting fish to take the fly.

Thanks John for your review ! “Great” But as they usually say ” you should have been here yesterday” but I say you should have been here today! We caught the five you missed yesterday! Look forward to going fishing with you again! Great company. Davy

The boat was real nice well equipped for any kind of weather, Davi was great and helped us out with everything even home made cookies, muffins and BBQ’d a trout for lunch.  The Lake is perfect mirror smooth which can be a challenge for fishing but we did great. 1/2day, caught 7 fish up to about 4 lbs. 4 big browns and 3 tasty rainbows. We were just throwing them back as we caught what we needed to eat. lot’s of action and gorgeous scenery
