Klox - I was hoping to look you up when I got to SA on my way 'round.
Leaving NZ soon and then up island and on to yneeb-land for a bit then on to SA,
BUT - fly fishing is a big deal here - mostly on South Island as I recall - but some good trout ponds about on North too.
A good mate or two here are involved in "engineering" - but surprising few have a plasma/cnc set up. Many rely on a hand held torch or a template tool to do the work that a machine could do in a minute or two....
If intrested I could ring them up and pass alnog an email address or 2. Jim
