Though my son has now finished his Otago degrees, I have a lot of affection for the region, being myself an Otago graduate and having worked in Southland as my first job in my profession.

It would take very little encouragement to get me to take my ute with a kayak on top when travelling down to race bikes in the Burt Munro thing in Southland at the end of the year.

So what can we put together?

Well im in invercargill, always keen to get out fishing in any way shape or form. Heading to Wanaka this weekend to chase some trout from the kayak while my mates from Chch go mountain biking.

I also have (well, will have soon) a decent wee pontoon boat (Frewza F14 Dinghy) to provide powered support when kayaking out in the strait, much easier to fish with my wife and kids this way ;)
For all the fishing methods, tips, and tricks out there, the most important is that the hook is wet ...

If you stop by Warrington,dunedin..I have lawn you can sleep on and a beach you can fish from,and an estuary you can flounder in. We also have a small free campsite with toilets. It would be great to meet you.
