G'day mate
Don't forget to go fishing in my old stomping ground.
The Waitaki river, There should be a few Salmon around.
Also try the Hakataramea river Fly fishing for Trout. (The Haka river is over the hill from Kurow ask at one of the pubs they will tell you)

Good to see you are doing well over there, Pity about the weather.

Heres a tip If you can, Go out on a charter boat off shore fishing, You wont regret it If conditions are right you will catch more fish than you will know what to do with.

Go out off Dunedin, Those blokes know where to go.

Have fun
