Reply To: Forum SurfCasting Trip 2


I have been thinking about this for a while.

I was thinking it could be worthwhile to try and see if there is interest to have a SurfCasting trip to the ‘Westcoast’ on Labour weekend.

Like most of you guys should know, the westcoast is a big place.

Greymouth/Hokitika would be the most convenient location for the Canterbury members. The Gret river would also provide a good source of trout fishing.

Going to Westport would increase the chance of getting a few ‘warmer water’ species like KY or even Snapper. Westport is 85km north of Greymouth.

Personally I would like to go south of Hokitika and head toward haast, and hope to get into less fished waters. But there is decent water along the entire coast.
