Video: New Zealand Saltwater Fly Fishing in “King of the Flats”

King of the Flats – Aussie Fly Fisher from Aussie Fly Fisher on Vimeo.

It’s not too often we see fly fishing footage from the flats of New Zealand, and this is some outstanding action from the crew at Aussie Fly Fisher.

From the filmmaker:

“South Island New Zealand, famous for its rugged coastlines, clear mountain streams, and large healthy trout, isn’t known for its saltwater fly fishing. That is, until now.

Join Joshua Hutchins, Aussie Fly Fisher, along with Collingwood local, Anton Donaldson, NZ Trout Adventures, in the Golden Bay region of NZ as they unveil the treasures of this emerging fishery.

Enjoy the explosive sight fishing of ray-riding kingfish, in the unexpected warm waters of South Island, NZ.

Special thanks to our film maker, Filippo Rivetti, Timeflees, as well as our supporters: Loop Tackle, Fly Tackle NZ and FlyLife magazine.
