Ha Ha RDJ, you are on the money chap. Shaky aisles = shaky future so we elected to stay outside the cordon.
Close enough to touch base with home, far emough away for confort and security.
Be good to put some fear in the local species down there, and some new blood into the local community.
Be nice to have fishing choices again, sea, river, lakes, so many choices……14/10/2011 at 5:54 am #18862
aww come on give us cantabs a break you make it sound like the whole city is a cordon zone lol :p14/10/2011 at 6:11 am #18863
(Chuckle) we’re Cantabs born and bred too remember!
Not really mate, just that we like to be independent and comfortably in our own zone.
Our chosen destination is far enough away to be separated yet close enough to just jump in the car and be there in short duration, should the need arise.
Whenever we have relocated, it has been to a specific area for a specific reason.
The greatest reason in this pending shift is to fish again.
The fishing’s usually crap up here and when the fishing is good the weather blows its tits off preventing an outing.
At least down south, I know the rivers and lakes down there and the sea is always there as a pleasant alternative.
Besides, when you feel you need a break yourself, it will give you another option as to who to look up for a fishing excursion!16/10/2011 at 5:43 am #18886
Yeah just pulling ya leg mate i know you’re form here and actually where u used to live on Niagara St is looking a little worse for wear, and for sure if I’m ever that way I’ll look you up.16/10/2011 at 6:44 pm #18888
Yes, have to agree about the old place but you too are in a crap area for uncertainty and damage repairs etc, Avonside?
Jeez, who’d buy a house in Avonside??
Thank goodness for the need to be up north to sort out the slack retailer response to our brand.
In some respects, the same applies where we are heading but we’ll be doing some new stuff down there and focus greater in other areas such as freshwater products etc.
The new immigrant wholesalers smearing tackle shops is highly evident up here and the further north the worse it gets.
The whole industry is falling into the traps of cheap reproduced products at $2 shop prices and retailers up here anyway, are buying for bugger all from bulk sellers and putting enormous margins on so the end user doesn’t get the benefit at all.
All they see is a new brand, usually not written in English!
The only winners are the bulk wholesalers and the greedy retailers who don’t give a fat rats **** for NZ companies.
Not sure where all this is heading or where it will end but at least we do what they aren’t and that is make New Zealand designed and manufactured products, made by NZ’ers for NZ’ers and in most cases at the same or less retail price point.
Be good to touch base down the track when we get sorted, so let me know when and if you are down 45 degrees south sometime and we’ll make you and any members welcome for that matter.
I can feel a fishing event coming along…….16/10/2011 at 8:51 pm #18889yellowfinParticipant
I can understand why you are starting afresh Fishy.It has been hard yakka for lots of people the last year.Next year I am putting my place on the market and going to shift to Golden bay area.No house damage where we are now, but just want a change of scenery and new spots to suss out.Scallops and snapper for a change.Might even get a decent sized boat.Have heard of kingis and rig to be
caught up there.The hunting isnt bad either.Wanted to move to Kaikoura but the missus said piss
off, so north here I come.18/10/2011 at 7:56 am #18908
Looked at Golden Bay, bloody expensive living up there tho’ all the stuff has extra freighting surcharges on it.
Gorgeous place in the world tho’ be nice if money was no object, we’d be on our way there tomorrow.
One of our biggest accounts is in the bay, you’ll know who it is when you get there.
So looking forward to getting the boat wet in anger, battling Salmon and Trout again and walking onto a riverbed and not have some cretan who thinks the country owes him a favour tell you to P*ss Off!
Friendlier people down south too, far less of that northern arrogance.
Good luck with the house sale, but why wait?19/10/2011 at 3:32 am #18913yellowfinParticipant
My son and family going to live in Canada next year , so will time it to fit in with him.You are right in saying that things are somewhat more expensive up there, but I am happy to pay that extra
to live and play there.Not having to get a job is a big help in moving north.If I get homesick for
salmon and eles I would consider buying a batch in Kaikoura to do extended trips away.What a bugger, the missus doesnt like Kaikoura so I will have to go on my own.( heheheh, chortle,chortle)19/10/2011 at 3:48 am #18914
……..and you will miss her too I bet…..23/10/2011 at 5:47 am #18953
Nah all good where i am fishy, still in the Avonside area but slightly off the beaten track away from the river area, all we have here is plaster cracking and thats it. BTW are you setting up shop again when you settle back down?
