Thank you for much need advice. I will keep al that in mind and get gears together, cant wait till i hit the river mouth there. I do alot of deep sea and beach fishing here in Oz. but salmon is a totally new species to me, so see how I go. hopefully wil hook up with a few locals for drink or bites. I’m even thinking about getting a guide for the first day there, and spend one day driving around ” with gears in the back of course” and do abit of sight seeing. I have narrow list a couple of hotel in Christchurch and Oamaru.
thanks again Kev. It was much appreciated.
