King Tide Salt Fly

Tauranga, BAY OF PLENTY, New Zealand

Endorsed by 878 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.

Nothing like a good old fashioned tug of war. Taking the @hatchoutdoors Finatic 7+ to the battle puts the fight squarely in your corner.
Hitting Yellowtails under the red Pohutukawas. @burden.a getting a few this arvo after a couple of teases earlier in the day.

Big bronzie stalking the boat this morning. It must be smelling of a few Kingfish already this season.
Awesome morning showing Glen @hulanz the basics of salt water fly. Scored a nice free swimmer first off and then got onto the ray rider treatment. Unfortunately the others came free for the day.
If you don’t own the kingfish it will own you...
The cunning of a wiley back country brown, paired with the stubborn aggression of a bulldog with a chew toy. What’s not to like about New Zealand’s shallow water Kingfish?
It’s a bittersweet feeling. @traveltruly getting the knuckle crack treatment on a fat Tauranga harbour Kingfish earlier this year. #mindthoseknuckles #oncebittentwiceshy
If anyone has been waiting for a decent weather window then now is the time. A few spots available next week, get in touch to secure a piece of the action.
It’s a good sound hearing the backing knot sing out through the guides. But it’s a better feeling knowing you’re getting some fly line back. Epic battles with thuggish kingfish are bound to test any anglers skills to the limit.
