Up there with the most enjoyable places to fish in the world, the backcountry of the North Island can be heaven on the right day. On this day we managed to hook about 60 fish between over the course of a day - equal to the most fish i have had on a New Zealand river. With 95% of the fish taking the dry fly in the form of a #12 royal wulff, and, beautiful scenery in which to fight the fish, it was angling heaven.
