Hawke s Bay is host to some of
the best trout fishing in the
country and around the world,
says Fish & Game Hawke s Bay
officer Tom Winlove.
The majority of rivers in the
Bay have easy access, and they
hold good numbers of trout.
Access pamphlets are available
at most sports stores and at the
Hawke s Bay Fish & Game office.
With many rivers so close to
the main centres, and with day-
light saving ahead, there will be
plenty of time for anglers to hit
the rivers, even after work.
With the temperatures
warming up and daylight hours
getting longer, there is no reason
why you shouldn t be getting out
there to experience what s on offer
at your back door this summer,
Mr Winlove said.
Be sure to buy your trout fish-
ing licence though.

Love of club keeps events going
Campers are invited to take part
in the Hawke s Bay Caravan
and Camping Club s summer
rally in Eskdale this weekend,
We welcome people with any
form of camping and a love of
the outdoors, says club presi-
dent, Buster Harvey.
The club was established 52
years ago and includes members
with tents, campers, caravans,
or motor homes.
With more than 100 people
involved the club is about pro-
viding recreational and fun
activities in a safe and family-
friendly outdoor environment.
Our restful camp has good
facilities, and even well-behaved
dogs are welcome, says Buster.
We have toilets, showers, a
kitchenette and lounge, while
outdoors we have a covered bar-
becue area, lots of shaded and
sitting areas, with the Esk River
providing recreation and our
important swimming hole.
Members are free to use the
camping ground facilities at any
time, and many do throughout
the school holidays and the sum-
Being next to the Esk river,
with modest overnight camping
costs, makes membership worth
One of the main successes of
the club comes from the love of
Eskdale Camp ,
motivates people to donate time
and skills in the maintenance
and development of the grounds
and running of rallies.

Caravan Club is off the Napier-

Time for change: Abandoning their cars and taking to their bicycles, EIT staffers did their bit to ''Move the
Planet'' on Friday. Other EIT staff, about 80 in total, who met up at the Taradale Town Clock for the event
did their bit to forsake fossil fuels and walked the last few kilometres to work. Cyclists, runners, walkers and
skateboarders arriving on campus then reunited for breakfast -- provided by chief executive Chris Collins in
the staffroom. Spot prizes were provided by Pedal Power in Taradale, EIT horticulture tutor Warren Holden and
Fishbike on Marine Parade as an extra incentive for those taking part.

New Zealand wines
outperformed their Australian
counterparts in a recent trans-
Tasman wine challenge. The
wines, eight from shiraz or syrah
grapes and seven pinot noirs,
were ranked in blind tastings by
judges from each country. Unsur-
prisingly, New Zealand pinot
noirs took the top five placings in
their category, with a Marl-

Hawke's Bay syrah, Craggy
