Hi Guys
We are having a go at getting a proper club set up for the local Yak fishers in Wellington.
I see this has been tried once before some 10 years ago, I guess there was a lack of engagement.
There seems to me more and more of us on the water and I reckon it's time to try again. I have put some feelers out on Facebook and there seems to be more than a bit of interest
Would be great to have a club to rival some of our Northern neighbours, hold regular club events, guest speakers and eventually a big comp to attract some of those from up north, see how they handle our conditions! :lol:

I want to hear from anyone who would be interesting in joining, or if you have some ideas about how it could be run, what you would like to get from it and if you are really keen, to be involved.

Any further info or interest on this? Seems wellys is abit hit and miss with clubs, seems to be a heavy amount of kayakers out there, when I started it was LTDGO, BAM, huntngather and xtreamz were the main players. Now the numbers out west on a light southerly out class the fizz boats. I've been on the low end of fishing for a few years with injuries and money being a huge factor at the upper end of it now and able to seperate some fishing time in my schedule now. What are you ideas for a meet up?
