4 Seasons in One Day


Old Man Nor'wester blowing like a b.....d!

Yes Akihiro, brown trout do jump!

My friend Akihiro has been visiting New Zealand in the worst possible fishing conditions with storm after storm lashing the mountains. He now knows what a Nor' west wind feels like rocketing down stream, head-on into your face. Thankfully though, he caught a few nice trout. It was a steep learning curve, hooking and landing heavy trout requires a lot of knowledge and skill. Akihiro raised his fishing skills to meet the challenge. The rain again is rattling on the tin roof as we sit inside and think of the next place to go........ 1 afternoons fishing left!
