One the Easter long weekend, Wayne, Steve and another WhereScape hanger on (there's always one or two around) were in Taupo in the middle of New Zealand's North Island and decided to go trout fishing.
Taupo is New Zealand’s largest freshwater lake which is central to numerous adventure activities and has a back drop of not one, not two but three volcanoes and has some of the best trout fishing in the world
Of course we could have trekked for hours through dense bush and had a go at fly fishing on a river in the middle of nowhere or if you are a touch lazy you can hire an expert with a boat to take you out on Lake Taupo itself.
We (of course) chartered the comfortable Stratus launch and our skipper Marty delivered the trout fishing goods with more than ten trout landed and six of those were over the legal length limit.
The tea, biscuits and boy banter were most excellent and Marty proved to be a bit of a "Gandalf of the lake", with no place to hide for trout through his years of fishing experience.
All trout were safely smoked and eaten. A great morning in paradise....
