Thank you for that Kev. I saw u fished at “Steel Rd” in one of ur video and it doesnt requires wader, which I wont have as we are travelling light and want to cover atleast 3 rivers, we have short list “waimak,Rakaia, Waitaki” river to do recon this trip, if we get fish this trip then good, and we will come back the following season abit better prepare.
The water does looks cold and windy, im thinking of bringing 4-7kgs spinning rods and maybe one multi piece surf rod.
anyway, thanks for the valuable informations. Thanks again
