I hear all the time about New Zealand's south island and its magical trout fishing. I'm sure the fishing is pretty impressive. But I came across this video about a couple of Kiwis wandering up a river on the less-heralded north island. Seems like New Zealanders really do have it all.

My evolution as a #TUVolunteer
It almost feels like I was born an angler.   From among my very first memories growing up in my Grandma's house along the banks of the Norwalk River in Connecticut, the most vivid and frequent ones are of time spent at the river. Playing. Splashing. Fishing.

I love the recent trend in fly fishing videos where anglers are transported completely off the grid to chase game fish in far-flung places. And I'm insanely jealous, too.

Video spotlight: Engler
Yeti's film series on guides is just outstanding. The latest installment, focusing on Colorado northern pike and trout guide Mark Engler, digs pretty deep into the psyche of a socially awkward kid who became a guide because fishing and hunting were the only things that made him happy. 
Dressing in muted colors, or even plaid or stripes, can help you blend into the background, making you harder for the fish to see.
