Love it out there. You're doing really well.  I've seen very few cruising kings over there yet it screams out as a great locale for them. This is not a criticism but have you considered learning how to double haul? It'll make your casting so much easier. Plenty of how to's on Youtube.

Snuff - I’m all for criticism as it helps me improve, One of the main reasons I post videos is to get comments on how I could do things better and other areas I should consider
Double haul is a work in progress 😀

Yip. The fly fishing learning curve can start to look like a mountain on some days. Probably wouldn't be so captivating if it was easy.

Snuffit's on the money with the double haul. Rod needs to load, just in the same way a spinning rod loads just before a cast is released.

Love the structure in the harbour. Looks very fishy. That cool westerly was giving me Kaipara memories though

Nice video. Happy to give you a few tips on the double haul if you want to join me out east one day. Might still be the odd kahawai school around.  PM me if you are keen. We can do a collab video as well.
