well done everyone

That was a hard to pick one all very good catches. :y:
Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

Thanks everybody for your votes !! And thanks Fletcher for your sportsmanship, it was pretty close indeed.

New Zealand IS a great place to live. And not only because of it’s EXCELLENT fishing, in general people in NZ are very NICE. I have only been meeting great people out on the kayak, hope to meet many more in the future.

Cheers,
Niels
