Turangi is reputed to be the fishing Capital of The World. I first went there from Australia, in 1995. I was guided by Ken Drummond.
Ken is a great teacher, who challenges his clients to get the best out of them.
He is a very professional guide, skilled in the use of wet or dry fly, polaroiding and different casting techniques.
He knows the "Hot Spots" in all the crystal clear rivers in the area, including the mighty Tongariro River and Lake Otamangankau (best known as the BIG "O" or Lake "O"). whether wading in the river, or in a boat on "Lake O" or in the back country by helicopter he knows the "Places".
I have so enjoyed myself that I have been back twice a year since then with my mate Joe.
I have also introduced my stepson, grandson and son in law to Ken and fly fishing.
There are rainbow and brown Trout in all the rivers but Lake O has the biggest, we have caught many there to 13lbs.
