    From '97 - '00 I worked with a Sth African bloke in Scotland. We terrorised the Highland lasses, and a good few thousand trout. Havn't seen him since them days, but he arrived here a few weeks ago. We've played around in the Ruahihi canal and Waioeka River with no real luck. Today we hit the Ngongotaha Stream, saw plenty, but no luck. Back down to the mouth and he was chuffed to land a 58cm brown(he literally dropped a second similar from his hands), and a 54cm rainbow. We didn't have scales. Good craic though.

    Thought I should add to my above post detailing the gear he used. Clothing consisted of a pair of Croc like things on his feet, a pair of K-Mart type shorts, a cheap long sleeve polyester t-shirt, un-branded baseball cap. Rod is a freebie given to me by neighbour, a Taimer 4pc 9ft #6. Reel, BFR RimFly given to me already spooled with an unknown floating line. Fly was some harling fly he found in my trolling lures. That's it, none of that fancy, expensive, trendy shit you can't catch fish without.
