Marlene began the business One Cast Fly fishing Adventures with passion, a stance to remain connected to her indigenous river heritage. We are extremely grateful to you and Craig for all the guidance and direction you set us at the beginning of our New Zealand fly fishing adventure which culminated in the success we had in the Commonwealth Championships. Your expert advice and tuition undoubtedly contributed to our success as we all used what we had learnt from you in our approach and understanding of catching the trout of the Tuki Tuki.. Through out the preproduction we found her to be very professional and always to give sound and solid advice. One of our stars was an accomplished fly fisherman and he was able to land many good size fish which added to the excitement of the story and filming. I would have no hesitation in recommending Marlene to anyone for her knowledge, professionalism and her genuine friendly nature which is encouraging and unfussed at all times. Also thinking of usingthe services of a guide. An equally good idea. I can vouch for these experiences, having just returned from N. Well look no further.
Of course I also used to flog them in the stream mouths of the Western Bays, Lake Taupo and other areas too with great success. As time went by and my skill level became higher I moved away from fishing streamers and used a lot more nymph and dry fly technique which I tend to enjoy the more on our crystal clear rivers down in the South Island and the streamers went by the wayside and until a few years ago this remained the case.
On one particular day I was guiding a longtime client of mine who had already landed 2 fish just over 10lbs in size on a standard nymph approach and had lost another couple of large trout. We came across another hog sitting in a small eye of a wee pool weaving from side to side occasional taking something. I had a chat to my client who is an excellent caster and has many other very good fishing skills about our approach on this fish. All was set and the client put cast after cast in the right spot but no take came from the hog.

Hundreds of whales wash up dead on New Zealand beach February 10, by Neil Sands Over whales were stranded on a New Zealand beach, one of the largest beachings recorded, with about 70 percent dying before wildlife officers reached the remote location More than whales were stranded on a New Zealand beach Friday, with most of them dying quickly as frustrated volunteers desperately raced to save the survivors.
It was one of the largest mass beachings recorded in New Zealand, where strandings are relatively common, the Department of Conservation said. Andrew Lamason, the department’s regional manager, said pilot whales swam ashore at Farewell Spit in the Golden Bay region, on the northern tip of South Island. About 70 percent had perished by the time wildlife officers reached the remote location and about volunteers pitched in to get the remaining whales offshore.

New Zealand was originally settled by Polynesians from Eastern Polynesia. Genetic and archaeological evidence suggests that humans emigrated from Taiwan to Melanesia and then travelled east through to the Society Islands ; after a pause of 70 to years, a new wave of exploration led to the discovery and settlement of New Zealand. This was not possible in the south of the South Island, but wild plants such as fernroot were often available and cabbage trees were harvested and cultivated for food.
Warfare also increased in importance, reflecting increased competition for land and other resources. As elsewhere in the Pacific, cannibalism was part of warfare. Leadership was based on a system of chieftainship, which was often but not always hereditary, although chiefs male or female needed to demonstrate leadership abilities to avoid being superseded by more dynamic individuals. New Zealand has no native land mammals apart from some rare bats so birds, fish and sea mammals were important sources of protein.
They also cultivated the cabbage tree , a plant endemic to New Zealand, and exploited wild foods such as fern root, which provided a starchy paste.

Wicket wasn’t easy to increase the scoring rate. Saying that, we were probably a few off from where we wanted to be. We were able to pick up wickets, some of which were quite fortunate.

Early Career Researcher Awardees: Her research has been published in international science journals and is regarded as leading edge. Her strong international reputation is reflected in regular invitations to speak at international conferences and contributions to book chapters. He gained his PhD in materials science and nanotechnology from the University of Auckland in and has shown a flair for setting up innovative scientific projects with industry partners and end-users.
He leads several applied research projects and mentors students and young scientists at GNS Science. His teams research and develop surface coatings, sensors, and surface modifications. A good deal of the work is accomplished at the nano-scale. For instance, some of the new-age surface coatings are times thinner than a human hair. The result of these novel enhancements are properties such as ultra-smoothness, improved electrical conductivity, greater corrosion resistance, super hardness, and greater wear resistance.
Applications include industries such as medicine, agriculture, manufacturing, energy production, transport, and construction. He has been effective in opening up new external networks and developing new industry linkages. Kim formed effective working relationships with the oil and gas industry, Department of Conservation and Ministry for Primary Industries as well as the leading cetacean research groups in New Zealand.

Jan 22, From rafting whitewater to glamping among the sheep, these adventures will keep everyone happy The many draws of New Zealand are well-known: The country is safe, and the scenery will blow your mind—from emerald-green sheep paddocks to golden beaches, surf-pounded shores and spiky alpine peaks, every square inch of this South Pacific adventure mecca is stunning.
Sure, getting there means at minimum a hour trans-Pacific flight from the West Coast, but if your kids are like most, they could happily circle the globe six times over as long as they have a tiny TV screen and a full roster of movies six inches in front of their face. Have them change into their PJs before the flight takes off. These suggestions should help. Break up the five-hour drive from the airport with a mile-long walk to Hupa Falls, near Lake Taupo, where the ice-blue Waikato River funnels through a skinny gorge.
In the morning, guides will get you kitted out in wetsuit and booties for a four-hour float downstream from the lodge on Class II—III rapids. Like so many remote properties in New Zealand, River Valley Lodge has been in the same family for five generations the kids go to the rural school just up the road , and their connection to the river and its canyon is contagious. It also happens to be the perfect multiday trek for families. At Awaroa Glamping , in tiny settlement of Awaroa, Mike and Birgit Crawford will ply you with delicious homemade pizzas from their outdoor pizza oven while you sip Marlborough sauvignon blanc overlooking the beach.
