Clark Reid

Guide and Spaniel Trainer, Clark Reid, tired, but happy
at the end of the first full-scale Poronui pheasant hunt.

Clark Reid grew up with a passion for gundogs and hunting on New Zealandís North Island. All outdoor sports occupied Clark. He is well known as one of NZís leading fly-fishing guides and flytiers. Recently, in association with Poronui, he added "Pheasant Guide" to his list of occupations. Over the years, Clark has run Labradors, GSPís, and now spaniels. He declares that he will now run nothing elseÖ heís a spaniel fanatic. He is currently bringing on a young ESS, who, at 18months of age, is occupying all of his time in getting ready for field trials. Clark plans on adding two more to his kennels in the ensuing twelve months.
