concept of nzfishing.com as a one-stop online resource for planning
a New Zealand freshwater fishing trip came about when Doug was researching
a visit to British Columbia. The information he needed was mostly
there on the internet but scattered and hard to find.
Doug realised that visitors to New Zealand as
well as New Zealand anglers fishing different parts of the country
needed a single comprehensive guide to New Zealand fly fishing.
The feedback from visitors demonstrates
how true this was.
nzfishing.com has grown and developed to be
the leading New Zealand freshwater fishing website, top of relevant
Google search results, and attracting thousands of visitors every
In 2009, nzfishing.com visitors voted it one
of the best New Zealand web sites in the NetGuide People's Choice
Web Awards. In addition, nzfishing.com was recognised in the 2008
Writemark Plain English Awards, where designer and editor Bev
Stevens was runner-up in the Best Individual category.
