Globe-trotting angling guide and World Fly Fishing Championship veteran joins Maven


A New Zealand rod maker has recruited a globetrotting angling guide and veteran of seven World Fly Fishing Championships to its ambassador team.

Christiaan Pretorious, who calls Namibia his home, but travels to fishing destinations around the world for more than eight months a year, has joined Auckland-based Maven. “We couldn’t be happier to welcome him to the Maven family. His warmth, energy and passion are a wonderful fit for our team,” said Gayleen Pratt, founder of the company.

With New Zealand firmly on his destination bucket list, Christiaan is looking forward to returning to a full guiding calendar in 2021 and beyond with his New Zealand-made Maven rod collection. “I am super-pumped to be joining the company,” he said.

“I am excited beyond words to push these rods to their limits and show you what they are capable of. With next year’s season lining up to be a good one, I am excited by this new venture,” he said.
