This is my first post, I am planning a trip to NZ. First of all thanks A LOT for all the posts about river trips in NZ. I carefully read almost all of them and it’'s a great amount of information to prepare my trip.
I would like to ask about fishing there. I am a beginner in fishing, but I think it would be awsome to have a light rod and try to fish in NZ on the evenings after walking or packrafting. I already tried to gather some information and from what I understand, a tenkara would be the lightest and easiest gear to put in a backpack. I am right ? If not what are the alternatives? It is impotant to me that it is light and small in order to forget it, but be however able to try to fish from time to time. If Tenkara seems to be the best solution which rod should I buy?
I think it would be important to have a day with a fishing guide in NZ at the beginning of the trip to increase my chances of catching fishes.
Thanks in advance,
