Tongariro Trout Fishing


On our way to Ruapehu last weekend we stopped (cos I'm one of those annoying people who if I see something when we are driving that I think is interesting I say "stop") near a bridge just before Turangi.


As we drove around Lake Taupo I saw these fishermen trout fishing all in a long line down the river.


These two in particular were the only ones who caught one while we were there, the others were throwing their lines in back and forth - no doubt they were pleased with their catch.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday :-)

It's nice to watch people fish. I cannot take the boredom of fishing, sigh.

Great capture. It must be cold out there fishing (at least they have the sun).
