Perseverance in testing conditions reaped rewards for Matt and Jakub after they spent a few days down south exploring new waters. Heading deep into untouched water meant a gruelling 20km round trip, followed by another long walk into the Fiordland forest the following day.
Wind, rain and glare all tried it’s best to hamper spotting but slowing down and taking time to cover the water proved effective. Several nice fish came to the net, all whilst soaking in the surroundings and some special water that dreams are made of.
If you’ve come so far, and your legs are screaming to turn around, sometimes its worth persevering for just that little bit longer and going beyond the limits of most other anglers and the rewards can be worthwhile!
