Unless I'm mistaken, we fished together in Auckland quite a few years ago. Things have obviously changed for both of us since then. I've been in Northland since Auckland. Everything they say about fishing in the north is true! Funnily enough, I had a job offer in Timaru last year. It was a good job,...
