Rainbow and Brown trout were introduced to New Zealand in the late 1800’s and just like every other introduced species have thrived since their arrival.

New Zealand in my eyes is the ultimate paradise and when those first fish got released into our waterways at that time, i’m pretty sure they thought it was heaven!!

We have the most pristine rivers and lakes in the world, but we also have a number of rivers around the country that are not what they used to be.

This makes the places we go even more special..
