Many will have tried surfcasting over the years with mixed results. Perhaps you caught a couple of small ones! Perhaps you got a dose of sunburn but didn’t even catch a single fish. While that guy just up the beach has been hauling them in all day! Don’t worry; we have all been there. Some anglers seem to catch good fish consistently while others appear to be wasting their time? The reason for this can be summed up in one word: knowledge!

As a member of several fished clubs I have enjoyed many club and inter-club surfcasting competitions stretching back several decades to beaches all over New Zealand’s South Island. One thing I've noticed is that many of these events are won by a surprisingly small and select group of anglers. Even if they don't win outright they often finish in the top ten! Why? Knowledge!

Why is it that given the large numbers taking part just a few fishermen can so often catch not only the most fish, but also the heaviest of the day as well? Believe me its true. I have seen it happen many times. It isn't just down to luck. These guys know what they are doing. They are using the knowledge they have gained over a lifetime spent fishing! Perhaps most importantly they are good at putting everything they know together to get the best results every time!.

Top surfcasters have an awareness of their fishing environment. This is essential as it enables them to select the best places to go surfcasting, the best times to fish, which baits to use and so on. This means they are always maximizing their fishing potential in a given area. For many old hands this knowledge eventually becomes instinctive. They just know which are the best options to take without even thinking about it.
The author has gathered together as much of this surfcasting knowledge as possible and released it now in this first ever edition of The Complete Guide To Surfcasting by Allan Burgess
This book also contains a substantial North Island surfcasting perspective, thanks to the considerable and greatly appreciated assistance of Denis Moresby. Denis has regularly fished New Zealand's best known surfcasting competition; the annual Lion Snapper Classic held on Northland's Ninety Mile Beach.

About The Author

Allan Burgess was the founder and editor of Southern Fishing and Boating magazine which he ran for 11 years. He was also a founding member of the Canterbury Sport Fishing Club in the late 80s and it's first newsletter editor. He has had numerous articles published in fishing magazines. Then in 1999 he founded this website www.Fishingmag.co.nz

For over 30 years Allan Burgess has fished for trout and Chinook salmon in his home waters along Canterbury's east coast, trolled for Southern blue fin tuna in Fiordland, hunted big sharks off Canterbury and Otago, kingfish and snapper in the Marlborough Sounds, and perhaps more than anything else; has been surfcasting all around New Zealand's South Island. He has fished in many surfcasting contests over the years and has also been fortunate to have fished some of the South Island 's most isolated and pristine beaches - where the fish bite all day long!

In this book, Allan Burgess has combined his immense fishing and surfcasting experience with his ability to explain things simply and clearly in words and pictures. There are over 198 photographs in The Complete Guide To Surfcasting, most of which have never been published before.

Free Bonus Ebook
4x4 Motor Bikes & Sport Utility Vehicles for Fishing
Plus, for a limited time we'll give you a free copy of 4x4 Motor Bikes & Sport Utility Vehicles for Fishing. This is also a totally exclusive title that is not available anywhere else in the world! It is not sold separately. You can only get it here.
Welcome to the first edition of 4x4 Motor Bikes And Sport Utility Vehicles For Fishing. This book is aimed at those who already own, or are considering owning, a 4x4 of some kind to get them to their favorite fishing water.

I have owned numerous 4x4s over the past twenty years or so. Some have been better than others. You can’t beat a four wheeler motor bike if, as I do, you live in Canterbury and chase the quinnat salmon that flood into the South Island’s east coast rivers for roughly five months each year - along with the big searun brown trout in the spring.

Most of Canterbury’s beaches are made up of loose shingle and you just can’t beat these little four wheeler motor bikes with their soft balloon tires for getting quickly over the stones. I’m not saying that it is impossible to get one of these machines stuck. It is just that I have seen hundreds of them in use and have never once seen one of them get stuck at the beach - ever! I’m often asked which is the best 4x4 bike or SUV to buy.

Just as importantly you have to ask yourself what you will use it for most often. If you are mostly interested in surfcasting and salmon fishing a four wheeler motor bike is more useful and much less expensive than a big heavy gas guzzling SUV.

On the other hand if you are wanting to tow a twenty foot trailer boat and launch it in out-of-the-way places where there are often no concrete boat ramps it is hard to beat a big Nissan Safari or a Toyota Land Cruiser.

Nowadays with the cost of diesel and petrol rising all the time fishing is becoming an expensive sport if you have a long way to travel. Many of us have had to adjust our mind-set to look at cheaper options rather than traveling 200 km for a single day’s fishing. Staying longer and car sharing with fishing mates are also good options to consider. SUV makers have also seen the light and are now making a wide range of smaller and lighter vehicles which use less fuel.

Vehicles like Suzuki Vitara and Toyota RAV are good options for light off-road work without excessive and costly full usage.Finally 4x4s are good fun and make a day at the beach or river more enjoyable by allowing us to carry a few extra items that we would otherwise have to leave at home or back at the car should walking be our only option. The vehicles mentioned in this book are by no means necessarily the best or the only ones you should consider. It is just that I have had personal experience with them.
