Booked a guided trip with Andrew, who advised that he personally wouldn't be able to take us in the day but said he could send some one else, which we agreed to prior to booking. There were three in our party, and we wanted a 6 hour trip, which we got. Both of my sons caught a couple of trout, but I missed out. I did hook what I was told was a 6lb brown, but lost it when the line broke. The guide tied a new leader, which snapped when he pulled it up, and he did this twice in succession. The third time he didn't pull it up so tight, whether or not it would have held if I had hooked another fish we'll never know! I've never fished in NZ before, but I think given the size of the fish, and the rate of flow of the river 6lb fluorocarbon was not the best choice, but on the day it was the only choice. Maybe it was a bad batch, maybe it wasn't, either way it cost me the only fish I hooked on the day.
