The Complete Guide to Surfcasting ebook

ISBN 978-0-9582933-0-3.  Published by Allan Burgess 2008

Improve your surfcasting?

Learn how to catch more fish?

Get greater casting distance?

Make up your own rigs?

Many will have tried surfcasting over the years with mixed results. Perhaps you caught a couple of small ones! Perhaps you got a dose of sunburn but didn’t even catch a single fish. While that guy just up the beach has been hauling them in all day! Don’t worry; we have all been there. Some anglers seem to catch good fish consistently while others appear to be wasting their time? The reason for this can be summed up in one word: knowledge!

As a member of several fishing clubs, I have enjoyed many clubs and inter-club surfcasting competitions stretching back several decades to beaches all over New Zealand’s South Island. One thing I’ve noticed is that many of these events are won by a surprisingly small and select group of anglers. Even if they don’t win outright they often finish in the top ten! Why? Knowledge!

Why is it that given the large numbers taking part just a few fishermen can so often catch not only the most fish but also the heaviest of the day as well? Believe me its true. I have seen it happen many times. It isn’t just down to luck. These guys know what they are doing. They are using the knowledge they have gained over a lifetime spent fishing! Perhaps most importantly they are good at putting everything they know together to get the best results every time!

Top surfcasters have an awareness of their fishing environment. This is essential as it enables them to select the best places to go surfcasting, the best times to fish, which baits to use and so on. This means they are always maximizing their fishing potential in a given area. For many old hands, this knowledge eventually becomes instinctive. They just know which are the best options to take without even thinking about it.

Welcome to the first edition of 4×4 Motor Bikes And Sport Utility Vehicles For Fishing. This book is aimed at those who already own, or are considering owning, a 4×4 of some kind to get them to their favourite fishing water.

I have owned numerous 4x4s over the past twenty years or so. Some have been better than others. You can’t beat a four-wheeler motorbike if, as I do, you live in Canterbury and chase the quinnat salmon that flood into the South Island’s east coast rivers for roughly five months each year – along with the big sea-run brown trout in the spring.

Allan was also a founding member of the Canterbury Sport Fishing Club in the late 80s and it’s first newsletter editor. He has had numerous articles published in fishing magazines. In 1999, he founded this website

For over 30 years Allan Burgess has fished for trout and Chinook salmon in his home waters along Canterbury’s east coast, trolled for Southern bluefin tuna in Fiordland, hunted big sharks off Canterbury and Otago, kingfish and snapper in the Marlborough Sounds, and perhaps more than anything else; has been surfcasting all around New Zealand’s South Island.

He has fished in many surfcasting contests over the years and has also been fortunate to have fished some of the South Island ‘s most isolated and pristine beaches – where the fish bite all day long!

In this book, Allan Burgess has combined his immense fishing and surfcasting experience with his ability to explain things simply and clearly in words and pictures. There are over 198 photographs in The Complete Guide To Surfcasting, most of which have never been published before. Order your own .pdf version now for just NZ$11.99
