Re: Hi fellow paddlers

Hi Codjigger, welcome. I am in Chch and hoping to get down your way sometime for a fish but in the mean time if you get up to Canterbury give me a holla and I will see if I can get out. I am starting to head up to KK a bit too if you get that far north?

Re: Experience

I got one off trade me for 16 bucks, good for depth and structure. My catch has increased but whether it because of my FF or the fact I follow Downtown around??

Re: Canterbury Yak Scene

Thanks Andym, Im lucky that work takes me past there every couple of weeks and I had a chance to fly over there last weekend. I see there is plenty of foul close by that looks interesting and would be keen to have ago there. Would an evening fish on a weekday be out of the question?

Canterbury Yak Scene

Hi I am new to town and want to know if there is a Kayak club/group that gets together frequently?

I am based in Woolston and would love to know where are good places to fish?

Would love to meet other like minded people for company and safety out on the water.
