New Zealand Trout Frontiers
New Zealand Trout Frontiers – a journey of exploration through a range of fishing venues, challenging myths along the way – is the kind of book you read when you can’t go fishing, or when you’d like to go, but need inspiration to get you moving.
In a relaxed and readable style, the author entices his readers to follow him as he faces a variety of frontiers that must be breached for progress to occur in the art of trout fishing. Whether following a wild trout in a hazardous setting or grieving for a fish recently lost, he communicates the feeling of being there in the midst of the challenge.
Techniques required to fish a range of waters in both islands are explored: all the way from rainbow streams high in the Ruahines to the braided rivers of the South
However, this book is not just about trout and the challenges they present. There is a pervasive sense of gratitude as the writer marvels at the beauties of the New Zealand countryside, and the trees and animals which populate it. Possums, a deer, a mouse, tuis and skylarks inhabit this world.
Relationships generate humour as the quirks and vulnerabilities of the author, his family and others are exposed in a variety of fishing situations.
Superbly illustrated with photographs to support images vividly evoked by the text.
