Born to Fish! Testing out the new OKUMA gear!

I am really stoked to announce I have put together a partnership with OKUMA New Zealandand CD Rods CD Rods, who imports Okuma in to New Zealand is an awesome NZ family owned business. Nick, Tom and the team are some of the keenest, fishos, divers and hunters you’ll find, with a grass roots passion for NZ fishing. NZ is the testing ground for Okuma globally and the team here design everything from the ground up for NZ conditions. With such a great range of gear from softbaiting to straylining, top water, jigging, deep dropping, livebaiting and gamefishing, Okuma are a great match to the many options we offer out of Tairua. I especially like the price points on their quality gear, making it one of the most accessible brands to the New Zealand public. Come and give their gear a try out on your next Provider charter, and if you like what you fish with, we can help kit you out.

I’m currently testing out some siiiick new snapper set ups which I’ll be reporting on soon, and we’ll be kitting out Provider with a full range of Okuma and CD gear for all scenarios which the team are going to help keep in tip top shape. Come and jump on board and do some testing with me soon!!

Our first few trips, I fell in love with the Okuma Tournament Concept softbait rods, and the trusty Makaira 10/CD combos proved they have a stack of drag to stop any solid kingi in their tracks.
