New Zealand has an amazing variety of trout rivers, streams and lakes. Some are rightly world famous – like the Tongariro and Mataura Rivers – while others create excitement among New Zealand anglers. Then there are the special spots that are known to just a few ‘locals’. In this fascinating collection, Tony Orman presents some of the showpieces of New Zealand trout fishing – including the Tongariro, Mataura, and Upper Clutha Rivers.
But he also shares trout fishing ‘secrets’, such as the Hutt River, Ruamahanga River, Pelorus and Tukituki Rivers
and draws the angler’s attention to those waters that are often underrated or overlooked. And there are some surprises, such as the Aorere River in Golden Bay and the new, exciting trophy trout water, Lake Dunstan, in Central Otago.
For each trout water, the specialised knowledge of local anglers, who know the water intimately, is combined with the author’s wide experience of New Zealand trout fishing to give a detailed account of the personality of each river and lake and the vital information on trout behaviour, insect life, flies and lures to ensure a successful fishing trip.
