“New Zealand is blessed with an abundance of rivers. They start high in the hills as mountain streams gathering power until they reach the lowlands where they spread and become rivers flowing through farms and forests on their way to the sea.
Trout, both brown and rainbow, inhabit most rivers of both main islands in New Zealand, they are pursued by fishermen and woman wherever they exist. Because of the differing nature of New Zealand rivers that can be as diverse as spring creeks to braided rivers, to fast flowing freestone rivers to slow lowland rivers, each type of river requires a different approach to be consistently successful in catching trout. This book will show you how.
