I’m Lucas Allen, a fly fishing fanatic based in Tauranga, the sunny Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. Here you’ll find all things fishing related with the emphasis on the many salt fly options we have on offer.
I offer fully guided salt water fly fishing trips based mainly around the Tauranga harbour. Spring through to Autumn (September-May) is the prime time to target the many exciting species available. Kingfish, snapper, kahawai, trevally and tuna all present great fly fishing targets. The main draw card being the shallow water flats style fishing chasing kingfish. It’s visual, challenging and really tests the anglers mettle. This was the turning point in my fly fishing career and saw my attention diverted from the amazing freshwater fishery New Zealand presents. For further information and any queries you can reach me here.
King Tide is a 14ft aluminium Fish City “tinny” responsible for many New Zealanders recreational fishing. It is fully surveyed to stringent commercial requirements and provides a safe, stable and uncluttered casting platform. Fitted with a bow mounted Minnkota electric motor we can stalk fish in shin deep water with no issues.
Please look through the site and follow the blog which sheds more light on this unique sport.
I look forward to seeing you on the water.
