Wandering Rambler II

Just a snapshot of a few out of the way places I get so see and visit......enjoy!
  1. New Zealand Kingfish on fly just landed. 
20 kg on 10 kg IGFA specs. Shot taken from the bridge.
  2. Hand to hand combat. Fishing deep off one of the sea mounts.
  3. Even the water tastes different. Pristine mountain springs.

  9. After a 12 hour hike you need to cool down......even if the water is only about 10 degrees. Flash Gordon thought he was fast......he should have seen...
  10. Solitude and another perfect run - now where's that fish?
