Team Tuesday - John Gummer Hits The Headlines

Great to see John Gummer in the newspaper for all of the right reasons!

"John Gummer caught his first trout on his own when he was 4 years old. He remembers it vividly, wading out into the Manawatu River on a beautiful summer's day.

"I was pretty pleased with myself and I have not really stopped fishing ever since then."

The Palmerston North Boys' High student is 17 now and his catch tally has gone up a bit since then but the thrill of the chase is still very much there. He's hoping it will translate on to a bigger river when he travels to Colorado next month for the World Youth Fly Fishing Championships."
