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.

How did people get on, haven't seen any trip reports yet. What was the winning fish, who caught it, any photos?

With all the sponsorship some people now have I would of thought the forum would of being flooded with TR’s!

Or did all the fish play hide and seek since they knew EAKFC are coming down to Papa Aroha in two weeks.

My impatience and general bad mood is due to a lack of fishing, bloody work, and young family duties!

Don't take offence, I'm like an addict on a bad come down at the moment :envy:
