Early Season Big Trout
In this Pure Fly New Zealand season finale, three of the country’s best big fish anglers hike into the wilds of the south island looking for some of the worlds biggest Brown Trout. These rive systems are one of the only places where Trout regularly push double figures, but catching them is no picnic. It’s early season, which means rain, snow and perilous conditions, but our hosts know that higher water can bring the real monsters out of their hiding places. Tom Hodge, Mike Kirkpatrick and Hannah Clement are big fish connoisseurs with a lifetime of experience on these waters, but it takes real cunning before the fish start coming to the bank. After days of frustration, it’s Hannah that steals the day, with a colossal wild brownie of over 13 pounds! What a way to wrap up season 4!
