A guide to trout fishing rivers and lakes of the South Island. Now hopelessly out of date. It contains information such as the stocking of waters by the Acclimatisation Societies. Of some interest all the same to South Island anglers. It is a small size book with only 50 pages and so can be read from cover to cover in just ten minutes!

There must have been many copies of this book printed as it is readily available from second-hand bookstores for about NZ$10.00
