King Tide Salt Fly

Tauranga, BAY OF PLENTY, New Zealand

Endorsed by 721 people

Add a new experience to your New Zealand fly fishing trip. King Tide offers fully guided salt water fly fishing trips. Being based in Tauranga means we have a huge harbour to target Yellowtail Kingfish in super shallow water. These "ray riders" as they're affectionately known follow the black stingrays onto the flats and are a great target for the fly rodder.

Just spent a few hours with @waikatouniversity PhD student Helen Cadwallader. She's studying Stingrays, in particular the Short tail (Dasyatis brevicaudata). A tagging program is in place for Tauranga Harbour in order to find out more about these majestic creatures. #research #science #nerds #stingray #newzealand
Hey @aussieflyfisher, remember this? Awesome charge down from some hyped up beasts. Great result from sighting to release.
Such an angry mug. Sure wouldn't want to be on the menu for these guys. Last few weeks have seen some incredible baitfish action in shallow water, and it's only going to get better!
@flyfishguide71  and @stevemccollam cracked the ray riders time and time again today. The last few eats were spectacular.
@stevemccollam and @flyfishguide71 slammed some fish today. Glassed out and overcast, shallow water fun with big packs of Kingfish working the shoreline hard on baitfish.
Huge bow waves early morning. We chased this Kingfish for 300m while it cruised the surface pushing a big wake. A well timed and placed cast resulted in an instantaneous hook up.
Father and son Rob and Norm Dines with one of a few from today. 100% hit rate, can't complain with that from some new salt converts.
