Manic Monday - The Dream Stream

With a long winter fast approaching, myself (Mike Kirkpatrick) and good mate Hans Kreuer, have planned a last fishing trip for the season to the North Island. We'd make a made a tentative contact with Miles Rushmer, who guides up around the Bay of Plenty region. We were to find out it was indeed a 'a bay of plenty'...
A big thanks to Miles for giving so generously of his time. It was great to experience something so completely different from what we have at the top of the South Island for sure, and while it may not be every anglers cup of tea, we left with permanent smiles for a few days.
Its important to note that these are pre-spawning fish moving up the system and we made a pre-trip decision not to target any fish in spawning mode. We also practiced 'limiting our catch' not 'catching our limit' I certainly hope you enjoy my wee movie and tight lines.
