Losers is a bit strong, but hey, that's not a bad idea. I guess it would be kinda cool to see the season unfold.

Thanks for the good words guys, and Tail, drop me a pm if yer serious about visiting NZ.

More to come in a few minutes.... :cool

My mate handed the kids off to school duty to his mrs, and we went on a bit of a roadtrip yesterday to some more early season backcountry goodness. I limit myself to one visit to this stream a season and certainly don't guide there,as its small and a pretty fragile fishery.
Casts aren't long, but the scrub will get the best of an errant cast and the fish go bonkers once hooked. We had fish running upstream and around corners quicker than we could run and with a bit of teamwork, kept them from busting off under the banks. Some of the better looking browns I've come across as well.
I'll be posting my TR's on this thread for the season....hope you enjoy. :cool

Thanks for the trip. Gotta visit those streams one day. :cool

You sir have some of the finest scenery and fish teh suk has ever seen you bastard keep that shit up. The coloration of those fish is insane, is it just me or do they seem to taper more off the back to the snout down there??? They seem a little more streamline than most Browns I have seen from up here. And no I am not medicated
