If any recreational group could truly be described as ‘mad keen’, it would have to be fishermen. Figures show fishing to be the number three physical recreational activity undertaken by men in New Zealand, behind walking and gardening, with an estimated 464,000 participants, and the seventh most popular activity for women, with 198,000 participants. And many of those people are keen to go fishing anywhere, anytime.
The Mad Keen Fisherman’s Road Trip is for those anglers who want to expand their horizons and explore piscatorial opportunities beyond their home waters. This guide is broken into regions from north to south and includes salt and freshwater fishing options, revealing top fishing spots, the best baits and techniques to use and other tips. It also includes information on boat ramps, where to buy supplies, accommodation options and things to do for non-fishing members of the party. Written in an accessible, entertaining style, The Mad Keen Fisherman’s Road Trip will have any mad-keen fisher and visitor to New Zealand plotting their next weekend away.
John Eichelsheim was the editor of NZ Fisherman and Gamefisher has contributed to a number of other fishing and boating publications. He is a keen angler who enjoys all aspects of sportfishing and has an extensive knowledge of salt and freshwater fishing spots around the country.
