A handsome and attractively illustrated journal of Taupo trout fishing. "The majority of New Zealand's somewhat sparse trout-fishing literature to date has been of the 'how-to-do-it' variety, but Alex Gillett provides here a poetic record of the day-to-day observations of an angler, together with practical advice, recipes, fishing secrets, and comments on Taupo's history, folk-lore, old identities and natural life. Jane Perry's sensitive paintings and drawings reveal an intimacy with the many moods of the lake and capture the essence of its abundant wild-life and natural beauty. Fishing for Taupo's magnificent rainbow trout is the common thread linking day-to-day living with the total ambience of this lovely part of New Zealand. And if as a non-fisher, you have ever wondered why fishermen fish, this book will provide a memorable answer." The foreword is by Sir John Marshall.
