Welcome to Geekzone and New Zealand.  You'll find plenty of good hunting and fishing spots all this country.  Trout fishing in Taupo is good right at the moment...

Welcome Azlan! I can immediately tell from your handle that you belong in this community ;]

If hunting and fishing rate high for you then NZ is a pretty good place for you too!

Thanks for your comments geeks...
Yes Hunting/Fishing is healthy sport. You can watch nature closely and is refreshing to
get outside from artificial world where we live.
I have been surfing the net to see how Kiwi's do hunting/fishing and getting good ideas.
Beside fly fishing what other kind of techniques used by anglers to catch trouts???

Well, netting is a popular (but illegal) method used by poachers.  Dynamite (powergel) attracts too much attention and while easy to obtain is also illegal.

But seriously, many people use boats at slow speed (3-5 knots) for the trolling/harling and downrigging fishing methods on lakes.  For actual angling (standing with hand-held rod) you can only use flys.  Live bait and weights are a no-no, although you can buy weighted fly line.

Fear not young fella!

I would say that Dratsab was was being witty (I thought it funny at least!), NZ is pretty good at maintaining a healthy Hunting/Fishing enviroment, and they do have people enforcing the law in those areas pretty darn well.
