    Her fish has held the family trout record for 42 years but it has now been broken by my 7 year old. I can't tell you how special that is for both me and her.

    Amazing !!



    That is very cool! Congratulations to your girl.

    It seems this paragraph might have confused a few of you. The "her" I was referring to was my mother. I don't have a daughter, my 7year old is a boy

    He's a jammy wee bugger that trout is not the only family fish record he holds

    Thing is he has a relentlessly positive attitude and gives it 110 all the time. A good reminder that if you do that anything is possible !!

    ATM he is constantly pestering me about tuna !!

    Caught in the canals?
    Talk about great condition.

    Rotorua lakes are pumping with this warm weather, another handful of nice condition trout ready for the smoker tomorrow.

    You have to play those seagulls different to a trout Dundee. Definitely need to keep the tip of the rod low after you set the hook. Ha ha ha ha.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
