Volcanic Trout by Brendon Mathews

It’s 20 years since the last comprehensive book appeared on the marvellous Taupo trout fishery in the North Island of New Zealand. Since then the pools in the great rivers running into the country’s largest lake have changed radically as have fishing techniques and even the regulations, which seek to ensure that the fishing remains at the highest possible standard. Brendon Mathews’ book should be an essential companion for the thousands of anglers who seek high adventure in Taupo waters every year. There is no facet of the fishery that this book doesn’t cover – from an introduction to the region’s violent and explosive past, through a detailed description of all lakes, rivers and streams, to fishing equipment, methods and techniques. Taupo’s secrets are revealed: discover not only the best way to go about catching those big trout, but also where to go to find them. The author offers advice on keeping, eating or releasing your catch, how to protect the resource, and general information on accommodation, guides, charter services, and all the other practical aspects so essential for a successful expedition to the Taupo fishery.
