Great report and pics ofuros; thanks for posting! Nice brownies, too! Australia doesn't get nearly the same amount of angling press as your Kiwi neighbors. Sure would love to make it down there someday to hang and chuck bugs at some wily southern hemisphere trout.
“Simplicity in all things is the secret of the wilderness and one of its most valuable lessons. I think the matter of simplicity goes further than just food, equipment, and unnecessary gadgets; it goes into the matter of thoughts and objectives as well. When in the wilds, we must not carry our problems with us or the joy is lost.” -Sigurd Olson
