Innovation, Dreams, Fish
HI to all :) It was amazing to receive so many supportive emails from guides, locals,farmers and the fly fishing community out there.I fight my battles, not just for myself, also for other artists. I would not be able to do anything, without the amazing support from you all. I"m always positive and moving forward with my dreams and goals, the bullies,negative people and fly thief's will never stop me. Spread the word, support all the small guy's, that care.
Thank you, Stu & Trigger :)
The top photo, I carried that book over two countries before I got that shot.There is an amazing story behind it all. The next shot down ,is a very fresh tigers pug mark(mins old), it was maybe even watching as took the shot. Jungle fishing is fun! you're always looking over your shoulder and into the water.The next shot is my new NZ guiding transport, hopefully it arrives soon. Get ready clients! :)
This was the lake that took me over 8 hrs trek to get to and I was exhausted when I arrived. Apparently, no other westerner had ever fished it, let alone with a fly. Even the locals had not managed to catch fish out of it, so a challenge was set. I did not even know what fish were in it at 14000ft., the locals accidentally mentioned it. I found this homemade rod on its shore. It was hard to lift the rod, as it was the heaviest rod I've ever seen or used on my worldly travels.
Last month I had no choice due to location and had to spend nearly a month without internet, I told some people recently and they all nearly fainted and said they could never do it.(without it). It was actually quite liberating and I recommend to all to experience it.
If you need a new box of the best flies or know someone starting out in your club or a friend. I sell full boxes and empty ones.

Whilst I have been away Trigger, has put on some weight. She's been getting over fed and resembles a small barrel with legs. The good thing is she's alive and well. I will do my best to get her out with me chasing the bike and get her back into good shape for the clients who like her to come along for the day, campout's or road trips. I think she will remember what a trout is?.
Those of you that may not know me , to help me be creative I have never owned a TV for well over ten years. Recently on the last few days of my winter adventures,I ended up in a city waiting for my flights back to NZ. I decided to treat myself and upgraded to a TV room, which was worth the extra just for the photo.I laid on the bed and stared it for two days ,never once switching it on.
The Deadly Nymph this one knocks the pants off any old pheasant tail nymphs. It catches lots more trout and is 100 times more durable. Comes in sizes 18- 12 unweighted(slightly weighted) and also comes with black tungsten beads and gold.Only tied on the best Strongest TMC hook.

The river in Jungle was flowing over some rocks and forming some white water and rapids.I hoped that there was no crocodiles around and was wading out, when I noticed on a rock that was just breaking the surface this fellow, clinging on for dear life, so I did a little rescue mission. As the chameleon was recovering and changing colour from wet and dark brown to light brown clamped to the safety of my fly rod. I got this cool shot and others.They can swim though this one was exhausted and stranded.


I read this book years ago ,I think!.
The book is classic and was worth reading the re-print again.The quote on the back is a killer, gets me thinking all sorts, very quickly.

Jim Corbett, has written or should I say did write lots of books quite late in his life. Though with all of his adventures and work he would have had no time, earlier on. This book is a collection of some or if not his best stories and books one. I learned allot reading it about tigers and many more other interesting things. His job was to kill man eating tigers and I maybe should have not read it alone in my tent most nights. Was glad I read it after my tiger trip to Nepal as maybe I would have not been as casual in the jungle. Worth reading if you are going to go on a tiger safari or maybe not!.
