Fishing Bruny Part 2 Storm Bay and the Channel

The Channel and Storm Bay area adjacent to Bruny Island provides a picturesque and productive fishing location which is well catered for boating anglers with numerous launching ramps and quiet bays.

New Zealand's Mataura River

by Ian Puller

If you have ever fished NZ, desired to fish NZ or are going to fish NZ the Mataura River is a "must visit" river. It is a dry fly fisher's dream, but other methods are also tolerated and successful. In writing this book describing the beautiful Mataura River in Southland, Ian Pullar has raised the bar for a book of this type.

Ian has presented the reader with a near mile-by-mile description of a dynamic river system that includes all but a very few of the originally recognized fishing access points. In so doing, he has managed to capture the moods of the river and its surroundings in a manner that is both informative and entertaining. By including maps and wonderful images, Ian has also succeeded in enhancing the reader's journey down this world renowned trout stream. This is much more than a mere guide book. Indeed, Ian has managed to produce a valuable work that is useful for planning a trip, but also designed to be carried to the river in the glove box of the car as a working reference tool at the streamside.
