Scoop Netting for Whitebait at the mouth of Canterbury’s Rakaia River. It is essential to wear your lifejacket in case you fall into the tide. Also film footage of an old VW beach buggy. It can be a long walk along the shingle spit over the loose stones to the river mouth. This exclusive video can only be seen on this website.

Exclusive video from The Complete Guide to Searun Trout Fishing online version. When I first started fishing for sea-run trout about forty years ago, some anglers would use smelt as bait for trout. The method was to catch the smelt, mostly called silveries in Canterbury, earlier in the day. Later that evening armed with a dozen or so smelt in a bucket, they would lip-hook one and let it drift downstream towards a likely looking spot using their lure rods. It was a simple yet surprisingly effective fishing method.
