I was fortunate to join Greg Pilkington (High Spirited Adventures) for a few days and explored a lovely remote river near Taihape We accessed it via raft, which was an adventure in itself. The scenery and fishing was spectacular, with most pools holding surface active rainbows in the 3-5lb range. A PMX #8 accounted for most fish, and a dozen nice rainbows were brought to the net.

In coming years Greg is looking at guiding this river in late summer, so please get in touch if you would like to book a trip.
