Hunting and Fishing
Fingers crossed it's going to be a great
season and the team at Central Otago
Hunting and Fishing in Cromwell are
already counting down to sunshine and
warmer days as the promise of the
upcoming fishing and boating season
looms on the horizon.
Step inside the expansive and con-
veniently located store in Cromwell and
you will find it is a destination in itself.
From the extensive and varied stock of
fishing equipment reputed to be the best
range available in Central Otago, through
to the local knowledge on where to fish
and what to use owner Larry Dougherty
says he and his staff know they can help
their customers with everything from
information and service through to great
products at hard to beat prices.
"From the map on the counter to pinpoint
some great locations to fish, to the
supplying of all types of gear, we can
"We are happy to give friendly advice and
a steer people in the right direction.
Whether it's trout fishing in the many
handy lakes and rivers or a short trip to the
coast for salt water fishing and
whitebaiting, we have the up to date
information and the gear needed."
Larry says that the boys in store are mad
keen fishermen and know all about things
to help customers.
"Fishing licences are also available in
store and for a limited time, a free hat is
available with each full season, adult
"And if a customer buys an adult's full
season fishing licence or spends over
$100 on products over summer, they can
go in the draw to win a $12,000 camping
Now that's a prize catch for someone! Get fishing this season!
If you didn't manage to get out for the
opening of the new fishing season last
Monday, don't panic! You have twelve
months to make up for lost time. Weather
is warming up and the days longer
allowing plenty of time to get out for some
fishing, especially in the evening. The
bonus of living in Central and the Lakes
areas is that a fishery is only minutes from
your home and there are plenty of waters
to choose from with no shortage of fish.
Fish and Game has been busy stocking
some of the smaller lakes and reservoirs so
forget the television and spend some valuable
family time with the children down at a local
Early reports are that Lake Dunstan's Lowburn
Inlet is fishing well and brown trout at
Diamond Lake near Glenorchy are close to
shore chasing bullies. Remember to carry your
licence at all times while fishing and pack
those catches on ice to ensure eating qualities
Have an enjoyable season.
Locator Beacons for life
Time spent hiring or purchasing a locator beacon will pay
dividends should anything untoward happen.
While the first move to take is to ensure you have a
lifejacket with you, having a locator beacon comes a very
John Munro, Manager of the Southland Locator Beacon
Charitable Trust says they already have many stories on file
which reinforces the importance of having a locator beacon
with you when boating -- especially if travelling to a remote
area, or spending a length of time out on water.
There are outlets the length of New Zealand at which these
Locator beacons can be obtained.
"From the tip of the north Island to the bottom of the south, we
have worked to ensure that products, service and pricing are
consistent throughout," Mr Munro said.
"What stands us apart from similar providers is the full
management back-up system we have in place."
"We log the hire, keep all the details, monitor it daily and
keep in touch with the officials when needed."
"As soon as someone presses the button, we can open up
communication immediately. We have the information at our
fingertips to pass on, such as how many in the party, does
anyone in the group have a specific need or health concern
such as a heart condition, and this can help set the rescue
system in place and determine the approach taken."
Currently available for purchase are several second hand
Priced at $250 each, Mr Munro says the normal retail for new
is $650, so definitely a bargain and maybe an idea for a
"They are all perfectly fine with many in a pristine condition
and warranted through until 2014."
Also new to the Trust is an informative new website that is
well worth a look at.
