Innovation, Dreams, Fish
Hello, I hope you are all having fun.
As you can see it was great to get reunited with Trigger when I arrived back after the months away working.

The web site has also had some great new upgrades and you can now book NZ fly schools, guided fly fishing and Casting lesson online. book away.:)

The startled back-country fisherman that's naked was found somewhere in Nelson area, having a wee dip in the river. He got a fright when he was caught, he was from France and looked like he needed a good feed,poor skinny bugger.
The start of the trout fishing season has been pretty good with clients catching some good conditioned trout. In the afternoons for the past four years there has been a flutter of may flies coming off mid afternoon on the Mataura river that is only a few hundred meters from my home.

STU'S SEXY MINNOW now comes in two size's, the latest addition is tied on a size 2 SL12 hook. Customers hare having fun with them in the fresh in the salt water.

The Innovation never stops. I have now added a new Stu's wiggly worm to the worm collection , it took me years to figure it out. Its also got the Stu's signature worm and grub hump

Bombs away!!
So you want to get down fast or not so fast in the water coloum to the feeding zone. Stu's May fly bombs are the heaviest mayfly nymphs. Have a tungsten bead and lead inner body as well as Stus Unique spindly nymph legs ,one of reconcilable features incorporated into many of his designs. They come in size 18-6

DO YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO FLY CAST LIKE A PRO AND ALSO FISH LIKE A PRO?


PRIVATE GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS

The other day, I caught this big fellow in a small lake near Christchurch. I was lucky it did not bite through the 3.5lb tippet. I caught it with a sexy minnow fly, it could not resist it. Normally I practcie catch and release though this time I donged it on the head and took it home. I have decided not to eat it and preserve it for the future as it was such a one off catch .:)
DAMSELS IN DISTRESS

Here is your chance yet again to buy the best damsel nymphs in the world . The Deadly Damsel has been nailing fish around lake edges and backwaters for years.

Did you know? That it is very easy to order a custom selection of flies from Stu. Boxed or unboxed.
He can make you a great selection of the best flies for when, where, species and country you're fishing. Stu wants you to catch fish.Only the best flies used in all the selections.


This book I found in a store in India and was the only book i smuggled back to NZ. It was written years ago and is a great read if you like reading about, nature research, hardships and trying to be the first people in the world to capture and track snow leopards. Worth finding a copy if you like that sort of thing




What an amazing group of women and a true story and film that looks awesome.
