A challenging spot

Stalking a nice NZ Brownie in a tough spot that required an approach from up on a cliff above. I tied a new terrestrial pattern the night before and was a good chance to give it a whirl... Always fun to see a fish give it the all clear.

Flyman,

The NZ wading gear is something else, and you hit it spot on. Meny Kiwi's often wade in shorts, long underwear (even nylons as I hear it) and a pair of wading boots.

Nice video of the NZ fellow and the big brown - but why is it every time I see a native NZ fly fisher he, or she, isn't wearing conventional waders?
