Spin Fishing

Spin Fishing Image smaller2Spin fishing in New Zealand is an ideal way to begin trout fishing as the skills involved are easily mastered. A basic outfit of rod, reel and line, plus a few lures are all that is necessary to give the novice a chance of catching trout.

Watercraft and knowledge of trout habits learned while spin fishing are equally useful in other forms of trout fishing such as fly-fishing.

Spin fishing is fishing for trout with lures that imitate small fish. These lures are cast with a threadline outfit consisting of a mixed spool reel loaded with suitable monofilament line, and a short, single-handed spinning rod, ideally between 1.80m and 2.40m long.
