If you follow my posts you’ll know I respect the effort it takes to find and catch our elusive native Brook Trout. The angler pictured above and below is a great friend of mine and definitely deserves special recognition. He came all the way from Christchurch, New Zealand to get the beauty pictured below. Okay, maybe he didn’t come just just to catch a Brook Trout…but he did that, too! If you’re wondering, no, I don’t typically guide barefoot. It’s a long story I’ll tell you the next time we go fishing.
