Fishing The Edge


A guide to surfcasting in New Zealand

Gary Kemsley



New Zealand is surrounded by over 17,000 kilometres of coatline.  Surf-caressed sand and shingle beaches, rocks that fall into deep water, all provide a stage for New Zealand’s most participated-in sport, surf and rock fishing.


It is hard to find a spot in New Zealand more than a day’s drive from the coast, making it accessible to all who want to try their hand at catching a fish.  New Zealand’s coastline is virgin by world standards and despite commercial activity we still have healthy populations of fish available made up from a number of species that inhabit our coastline.


The basic set-up is cheap and ongoing costs are minimal, so anyone can get involved, fishing the edge.


In this book you will learn the basic knowledge required to be successful, from where to go, baits to use, reading the beach and the different types of beaches, fishing around rocks, tackle, rigs, accessories, fishing lures, casting, night fishing; in fact everything you need to know for successful surfcasting.


Gary Kemsley is author of six books about fishing in New Zealand and a columnist for New Zealand Fishing News; he lives in Napier.
