“ My wife and I were fishing with friend/guide Dean Whaanga in New Zealand when a combination of bad weather and good timing resulted in a fish giving us the experience of a lifetime.

I was lucky enough to do a helicopter fly-in a few weeks ago to some great back-country water – unforgettable day!
