{New Zealand} Molly's 12lb Brown!

Saturday, January 14, 2017

After hiking all day through the barren tussocks surrounding river "X" (New Zealand), we'd seen only one fish, a feisty little 12 incher--beautiful, but not quite what we had in mind to catch.

It just so happened that in the last hole of the day, a massive snout eating Manuka beetles caught our attention with three porpoising rises.

We snuck up on him and realized he was truly the Lord of the river. After three refusals and a heart-pounding hour, I had a 12 pounder in the net.

Many thanks to @chris_dorenz for his guidance and to Ben for the amazing pictures!

We couldn't be more proud of Moll's for landing this beautiful brown.
What a fish!
