Essentially a heavily revised and updated edition of the author's previous book, Fly Fishing in New Zealand. "The Trout are Rising is a comprehensive guide to fly fishing in New Zealand. ...Every aspect of preparation is covered, for it is only after sound grounding in the fundamental skills that an angler can gain the assurance which is necessary to success and which ensures that he will gain enormous enjoyment from this sport. ...A guide to the waterways of New Zealand is provided in part two, covering almost all the trout lakes and rivers and including advice on accommodation and access roads. For the tourist, in particular, this is a most valuable section. For those who are interested in the maintenance of trout fishing the author has included a most useful appendix. In this he presents well documented information on the introduction of trout nearly one hundred years ago, and offers a summary of his views, based on long experience, on the present day problems of re-stocking and tracing trout populations."
