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 trip participants to meet each other; and for 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. We will teach a number of practice drills for participants to utilise in the months before their trip.
  • to allow those contemplating booking a New Zealand trip the opportunity to meet us and our team and to speak with others who may have done the trips.
  • to have a lot of fun with like-minded people.

This free day is available to all of our NZ clients for 2024. 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 2022 clients will be attending, we will look to fill the remaining spots from our email lists and Facebook page.

This will be a valuable day of skill-acquisition, with most of our guiding team being available. It also represents a terrific opportunity to meet other trip participants / like-minded folk. There will be a free B.B.Q. lunch.
