No one could be better qualified than Rex Forrester to write this sort of informative, useful book on all aspects (not forgetting the fun and frolics) of trout fishing in New Zealand today. This new book from his practised pen compacts all his trout-fishing experience and experiences and offers the reader an unmatched complete practical coverage of the sport in New Zealand. Also included is information for the salmon fisherman. From basic chapters on the types of fish and fishing available, the author goes on to provide detailed advice on where to go, at what time of year, and how to fish your chosen spot. Rivers, streams and lakes are all localised and described from north to south of the country, with their angling prospects itemised by example and often accompanied by an amusing story. In addition there are sections on tackle and lures, on fishing guides and tips for visiting anglers, down to cooking and smoking the catch, all of which add greatly to the book's value both for the local fisherman and the tourist".
