~Gary pokes his nose over the margins hoping to find dimpling trout~
Many of us would be lying if we didn’t admit to a fishing lifestyle of a Trout Bum made popular by john Geirach’s work. Apparently, such people travel the globe blagging, begging and making ends meet to fund their fly fishing addiction! Given this I didn’t feel so bad turning up on Gary Lyttle’s doorstep in Taupo NZ pretty much unannounced. Gary (bless him) already had a house full of fishing junkies and not wanting to turn me away offered me a comfy sofa in the garage. Full of every imaginable fishing paraphernalia (including a boat) this was pure luxury to yours truly. Following a good night’s kip we were up early to check out a spring creek in search of rising trout.
