I can second the dead supple jack being good for kindling, any vines that break off easily should be good to use.

Hi Tim

Dead standing Supplejack vine burns quite well as kindling. I also found dead and dry Kie Kie leave to be a good tinder. It seems to contain oils that help it light quite well. What works for me is having a bundle or Kie Kie leaves and rubbing and distressing them into a soft fiberous birds nest. This will hold a spark from a ferro rod and ignite into flame with a bit of blowing.

Can't really help you on the fishing front but you might find this thread useful for some tips on primitive fire methods. Best of luck!

Also keen on tips for making nets and traps from native flora if you know of any good sources?

Hi Zebedy, thanks for the reply. Mostly looking for NZ specific stuff around which wood is best for primitive fire lighting techniques and tips on catching fish etc. Cheers.
