Listing Detail Tabs

First published in 1966, Douglas Stewart's book is still considered the classic account of fly-fishing in Australia and New Zealand. To the stories of fishing, from Lake Taupo to the Snowy River, Stewart brings his poet's eye for nature and for the human beings encountered along the way. Fishing, as he makes clear with his sense of humour and drama, is about much more than fish. The introduction commissioned for this reprint is by the poet's daughter, Meg Stewart, a Sydney author (Harry Moon) and film-maker.

Stories about trout fishing in the Australian Alps and the Awakino in New Zealand but includes stories of charming creatures in the wild like the Kiwi in Omoana, the wombat on the Badja and the yellow bellied water rat at Brindabella. The author was an angler and one of the nation's foremost poets.

One of the most enduring NZ & Australian pieces of fly fishing literature. Several fantastic chapters on the seven key Taranaki Rivers (plus some saltwater locations). The Awakino River chapter will inspire you to beeline straight for the river's rainbows!

A fabulous gift for any fly fisher!
