We're planning to do the unconventional by visiting South Island on foot. We are looking for the three dimensions it offers, as well as the originality factor - I am well aware of the rip opportunities on the tip; and the outside beach casting... but how about Powder Hole? Is there much of a flats experience on the inside lower end of South Island around Powder Hole? Is sight fishing out of the question down there?
I am thinking a light wind out of the east would be best for fishing that inside area (obviously)... any thoughts on that?
