Just returned from the aforementioned trip to New Zealand. Had a great time fishing the Whirinaki (pronounced Fear-a-na-ki) River in a remote area of the North Island. Beautiful, clear, easily waded river similar to the Little R if it were located in a jungle. Outstanding nymphing, no rises!
Oh! Yeah. It's summer in NZ.
Very inexpensive AFTER you get there. $0.75 US = $1.00 NZ$.
People very friendly and extremely helpful.
LRO was very helpful in helping me obtain the necessary gear.
Pictures when I figure out how to add them.
