Dave is a fly fishing guide. He enjoys talking and studying American politics and didn't hesitate to let me know he doesn't like George Bush (I'm being gentle), the Republicans (although he admitted one of his favorite clients is a Republican) and Australians. He's retired, living off his pension (all Kiwis get a pension once they reach a certain age) and guiding, and is a black belt in karate (so if you are a Bush fan, pretend you're not). He's fished several times in the US but prefers New Zealand. Dave patiently taught me how to fly fish but we mostly had fun joking around. His website is at http://www.mataura.co.nz/.
