This day has been put together with the following aims:

  • to ensure that all NZ trip participants are as well-prepared as possible for their trip.
  • to allow first-time and ‘first-time in a while’ trip participants to meet each other; and more regular participants to catch up.
  • to give everyone the opportunity to improve their casting proficiency and thereby improve their chances of greater success in NZ.
  • to have a lot of fun with like-minded people.

This free workshop is available to all of our NZ clients for 2020. However, we urge any past and prospective future clients who wish to attend to also express an interest. Once we have confirmed how many of our 2019 – 2020 clients will be attending, we will look to fill the remaining spots from a list compiled via the form below.

This will be a great weekend of skill-acquisition, with all of our team being available on the day. It also represents a terrific opportunity to meet other people on the trip / like-minded folk. There will be a gourmet B.B.Q. lunch on both days, as well an optional dinner in Alexandra on the Saturday night.
