Fly Fishing Basics | Part 1

A few fly fishing basics suited for all fly fishermen, but really aimed at those looking for some straightforward fly fishing tips for beginners.

In this video, Tim Gaunt-Baker talks about how to choose the right rod and line and offers some great advice on choosing a fly fishing vest as part of your basic fly fishing gear.

In the follow up to this, Part 1 of fly fishing basics, Tim demonstrates the two building blocks of fly fishing: the roll cast and the overhead cast. He will show you the right and the wrong way to do it! Look out for Fly Fishing Basics | Part 2 coming soon.

‘It’s All Part Of The Story’ Fly Fishing New Zealand.

Come along on a late season overnight guided trip with Dane Kresten Ovesen. A few ‘hitches’ along the way mean a rough start for the big fella but some quality fishing more than makes up for a heavy cold, wasp stings, broken sunglasses and busted rod.

Mike Kirkpatrick is available for guided fly fishing based in the Nelson district

Fly Fishing Is A Joke

Please actually watch the whole film before commenting. I’m noticing some folks are drawing conclusions without watching the whole piece. Thanks. This was a film I made to complete my MFA in Science and Natural History Filmmaking. It comments on the nature of fly fishing and the difference between observation and experience. It’s gotten about 150k views on Vimeo so I’m adding it here as well.

Attempting The Impossible! Goliath Grouper On Fly Fishing Tackle

Our goal was to attempt the impossible, hook and land a giant goliath grouper on fly fishing tackle. To my knowledge, no angler has ever accomplished this before. I was fishing with fly fishermen John Kelly and Tom Kazazes. Goliath groupers are one of the toughest and strongest fish in the ocean. We started the day off fishing for false albacore (bonito) to use for bait for the goliath groupers. After catching half a dozen albies, we headed offshore to begin our quest for a goliath grouper on fly fishing tackle.
