Here is a link to a video from last year's trip to New Zealand:
It was uploaded to youtube a few days ago.
This is the biggest trout I have ever caught. It couldn't have been in a better setting, with better people, or on a nicer day. It taped out at 30" and it weighed in at 12 - 12 1/2 lbs. It took a size 16 black all purpose nymph. The fish was holding in the head of a pool and ate the nymph without hesitation.
My thanks to Rich Meyer for being a great fishing partner that day.
Bryce Curle, a super guy all around, did an awesome job guiding us in our day in the backcountry. Without him this fish and the video wouldn't be possible. Cheers mate.
