spey clave new zealand

this is a copied post written by peter morse...

The Southern Spey Clave

To be held in the town of Kurow on the Waitaki River on New Zealand’s South Island in early March 2019. 
Supported by Sage and Epic this event is FREE

Put these dates in your “must do” fishing calendar for 2019
March 1-2-3 – Prime salmon time on most South Island east coast rivers including the Waitaki
VENUE. The town of Kurow is 3.5 hours south of Christchurch or less than 3 hours from Queenstown. It’s ideally situated on the Waitaki River. This event is self catered – except for Saturday night when we’ll adjourn to the Kurow pub for a feed - details to come. Kurow has 2 pubs, several cafes and restaurants and a supermarket. The Waitaki Valley region has wineries and leads to the heart of the Mackenzie Country and the Mount Cook region so non-fishers can find plenty to do.
Our base is www.kurowholidaypark.co.nz There’s plenty of simple accommodation and a hall which we’ll use as our HQ - Those who aren’t equipped to camp get in early, the huts and bunk rooms are basic and clean.
The Program will Feature FREE Spey casting lessons with a line-up of experienced instructors. There will also be a range of rigged Spey rods available for you to try on the river.
Knots, Fly Tying, some great “How To” presentations and lots of fun!
We’re very fortunate to have one of the original US Skagiteers George Cook doing several demonstrations, George will be available for plenty of Spey chat, and teaching. George is a long time Alaskan guide, tackle industry rep and Spey fisher who has been at the forefront of this sport, especially Skagit style, since it first began to take off in the Pacific North West 30 years ago. A line-up of presenters, including FFI THCI instructors, and local Spey gurus will also be sharing their knowledge about how to cast and when and where to apply two handed fishing techniques to NZ fisheries over the 2 days.
So bring your Spey gear, we want to see your flies, and hear your stories. Also bring a folding camp chair for the sessions on the river!



right.
so how many of you deep-pocketed big notes are going to join us???

and can someone bring us a foldy chair?
I have petrol money.


cheers,
shawn

Shawn,

First off I’m not your mate.

Curious in California,
Nate

I believe that quinnat salmon is the old Pacific King/Chinook salmon introduced to Oz/NZ donkey's years ago.
There are also Atlantic salmon farms in NZ of which there were sure to be escapees (I'm sure my friend visiting caught some)

Surprised to see this as there are few salmon rivers in nz and their stocks are under severe threat.
I read somewhere they had build a hydro one one river system in recent years and omitted a fish pass!!

I have seen Armageddon!

Apologies for dour news
