King Tide Salt Fly

Tauranga, BAY OF PLENTY, New Zealand

Endorsed by 758 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.

Found a minute or 90 to tie up some more stock. So many piper around on the flats at present. It's no wonder the kingfish are fat and feeding hard.
@guide_clinch got a taste of shallow water ray riders today. Despite the mad rain bomb upon launching it turned out to be a good day.

Quick tail/handshake before release. If you want speed, strength, smarts and aggression then a Yellowtail Kingfish on fly should be on your hit list.
One kick of the tail for freedom. Harbor is crystal clear after the recent downpours and sighting is easy.
I'll be the first to admit we got outfished by these two yesterday, little grommets had the snapper running scared. Best mini crew the two dads could ask for.
The start of many more. Although he was more intent on eating sandwiches than doing any work! #firethedeckie #snapper #fishing #fatherson
Once bitten, twice shy. Mind those knuckles. New Zealand's shallow water equivalent of a freight train pulling some backing. #kingfish #rayriders #tagakingonfly
After a week off welcoming the arrival of our daughter it's back to the boat. Thanks for all the well wishes, looking forward to the next few months.
