Just a quick up date. Most of the rivers are holding great trout like this FAT little four pounder, The picture doesn’t really do this Jack justice and he put up one hell of a fight!!! DOC will be estatic about the increase in numbers of good trout taken around the lake, I sure as hell am!! I am taking fish from all the rivers and even lowered my standards by fishing the Tongariro.
This little fella has been turned into smoked trout dip and Smoked trout fettucine. The next Video I do will be to show you how to get the best out of the little Kilwell smokers you can buy dirt cheap. The quality of product is outstanding if you take some time in preparing the fish and have the smoker set up correctly.
Bring on the winter fishing season.
