Fast action 9' (2.7 metre) rod from 4wt to 6wt teamed up with your favourite line. Confidence is a big advantage to casting to large trout in this area. I have tried all the rods and at the end of the day, you pay for what you get. I stick with the best Sage or Orvis.
Lightweight chest waders, rubber studded wading boots (easy to keep clean to help arrest the spreading of Didymo) once again Sims or Orvis is my preferred choice.
Dull coloured fishing clothes, wide brim hat. Be prepared for changes in the weather bring a pack away jacket.
Good quality Polaroid glasses in either brown or amber.
We can supply top of the range rods and most other equipment. Although waders and wading boot are hard to produce in New Zealand, but I would recommend you bring your own (its more comfortable).
