This was only the 3rd or 4th trout I casted too in New Zealand. After a good bit of walking we stumped upon this large rainbow feeding heavily on tiny mayflies beneath this willow bush. A few changes to the rig and it didn't take but the right cast to get him looking up.
So happy to be sharing this short video of me releasing a few hefty wild brown trout back into the water which they belong. The trout in this video were caught throughout a couple trips to different rivers. They all swam away safely!! Catch and Release everyone - definitely the way to go!
