The world's best flyfishing site.

Picture of the Day

It may surprise you to learn that there are still a few of them to explore, and they aren't in Mongolia. For instance, the lakes of New Zealand's South Island. For all the talk about fishing pressure down here, you won't bump into many anglers on these big lakes. Or the small lakes, for that matter. Sure, there are usually a few boats dragging trolling gear around and tossing empties over the side, but almost nobody searching the edges and drop offs with a fly rod. These lakes are stuffed with cracking rainbows and brownies that never see a fly. Little bullets like this one, from two to four pounds, are in my view the best freshwater fly rod quarry on the planet

Frankly, South Island anglers don't know the meaning of real fishing pressure. You know, with respect, they really should get out more.
