    Fish New Zealand Fly Fishing

    Just got back from my annual trip to the South Island of New Zealand and I'll post a few pictures if I can figure out how to do it. Fishing was great this year, topping the list of memories was a 9 lb Brown on my 5 wt St. Croix Legend rod taken on the Ahurriri River. He fell for a size 14 parachute black gnat. My net was a bit small for the critter!

    Another nice one was a 7 lb Brown on the Waikaia River, followed by a 6 lb just a little further upstream. These were fooled by titanium beaded hares ears, size 18. Such fun! Many more rainbows and browns were taken in the 3 to 5 lb class

    Regretablly, we must sell our place and the campervan due to changing priorities in the grandkid department. If you know of anyone interested, check out my website at www.mcfallrentals.com/nzfishhaven or call me in Boise at 208 342 4530.
