ONE MORE THING TICKED OFF THE BUCKET LIST

It is true every cloud has a silver lining. Last minute invitation to do a raft fishing trip down the Tongariro thwarted by heavy overnight rain the night before, arrived to find river very swollen and dirty. No Tongariro trip. Bugger! What to do ?! Alternative plan hatched. Spent yesterday on Lake Otamangakau with Ken Drummond Fly Fishing Adventures and caught my FIRST EVER brown trout, a 9 lber !!!!! Jack Brown-Trout was a very handsome specimen indeed! Prior to that a beautiful 8 lb rainbow followed later by two more rainbows. All successfully released back into their home, all swam away strongly. I'm hooked, Lake O I will be back, thank you Ken for introducing me to a beautiful part of our wonderful country.
