Pete Lamb

Member since August 2014

Lower Hutt, New Zealand

Background
I've been fishing in New Zealand for 45 years and chartering for 25. I've done just about every kind of fishing there is and am passionate about taking out people and showing them the awesome fishing and scenery in Wellington, NZ. I've written articles for NZ Fishing News, appeared on most of the fishing shows in NZ and a few DVD's including my own DVD, Bent Rods and Screaming Reels. I'm keen on landbased fishing as well as boat fishing.
Techniques
We do pretty much all styles from light tackle, lure, bottom bouncing, trolling, livebaiting, straylining, salt water fly and gamefishing.
