No two anglers are alike and no two rivers are the same. One of the key aspects to guiding is for the guide to find suitable water that matches the anglers ability with consideration to the local weather and river conditions on any given day.
In saying that anglers can really help themselves by getting casting tuition or at least practicing before coming to NZ. In Australia there is no better casting instructor than Peter Hayes. I've many spent days with Peter and his dedication to developing casting skills and teaching techniques sets him at a high bar above all others.
We are often faced with challenging situations, whether it be the wind or where a trout lies dictating an unorthodox approach. The angler with a good grasp of casting is simply better equipped to fine tune, with tuition, their existing casting as well as learn and execute new casting techniques. The fly rod and what it can do as a fishing tool is only limited by one's imagination and I take great pleasure in helping anglers discover this.
