Trout fishing in North and South Island. "Lake Taupo and its streams are celebrated wherever anglers gather in any part of the world. But Greg Kelly also takes the reader to lesser-known places with a beauty of their own as well as a potent lure for fishermen. We meet men of many kinds. In Southland, Canterbury and Nelson; in mysterious bush-rimmed streams deep in the King Country, Greg Kelly casts a seductive line. His book has the feel of the country, the charm of the unknown and unexpected, good stories told with simplicity, humour and knowledge." Chapters include: The flies in my hat; Snobs on the Riwaka; Mr Greenwell's glory; A happy trio; The story behind the tup; One can never tell; The dry-fly angler's paradise; The big one that did not get away; Broad hint to glory; The best fly for the water and season; The Apron Pool; 'What's the difference?'; A lesson without words; The seductive nymph; The snaky cast; There's many a slip; Flash floods; Birds of the riverside; Disasters are not impostors; 'Fantastic fishing'; The ugly duckling; All they got was the ride; Whakamaru fighters; Waiteti interlude; The turbulent Tongariro; Night fishing; A word and its meaning; The Whakapapa.
