We have come to our Christmas New Years break already this 2014/15 season at Cedar Lodge! Time flies when you are having fun. Overall our early season has been a success. Despite some very “spotty” spring weather we managed to lose only one fishing day pre-Christmas. We scrambled around the South Island a bit to find fish-able water at times but all in all we had some good fishing. The last week was particularly fishy with fine and stable sunny conditions bringing the fish to the surface more than at any other time of the year.
While rural home and land improvement projects never end we managed to avoid major items and concentrate on new plantings, golf course maintenance, animal husbandry and gardening when time allowed.
Our new chef Steven Weiler has been amazing. Not only has his food and presentation been outstanding, his organizational skills have made everyone’s day to day much smoother. He has been able to source high quality food from smaller New Zealand suppliers and it has made a positive difference in our cuisine this year.
Our summer/fall session (Jan-March 15) is at full capacity for the 2015 season but it’s never to early to make plans for Cedar Lodge’s 2015/2016 season ( NOV-10-2015-MARCH-15-2016). Heli-fishing in New Zealand for a Christmas present anyone?
