I’m Lucas Allen, a fly fishing fanatic based in Tauranga, the sunny Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. 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. Affectionately known as Ray riders these kingfish cruise the backs of Stingrays looking for easy pickings as they cruise the vast flats. This presents the ultimate sight fishing challenge and is sure to get any fly casting enthusiasts heart racing.

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.

For all bookings and further information you can contact me here. I look forward to getting you on the water and into the action.
