New Zweeeland

Just got back, and it really is better than I could have imagined. When combined with frequent flier miles, I think it is the best value in fishing destinations. We spent as little as $150 a person for room, board, guide and tip. Can't beat that.
The fishing was amazing. My biggest was an 11# brown that took a #14 Black Elk Hair Caddis. That fish put to rest any doubts that my bamboo couldn't handle a nice fish.
I can't wait to go back.
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.

A trout of that size on a dry fly is one to remember! Congratulations, and glad you had such a good time. Someday I hope to get over there.

Hey Mayflyman, maybe we could drive together?
