After rediscovering footage about fly fishing the Awakino river, I realised that it makes a wonderful fishing story and put it together. Here it is!


This video about fly fishing the Awakino river is about an adventure that start in Auckland. Being stuck for several weeks in a concrete desert, I felt the urgent need to escape the busy city life. Therefore, I drove into the backcountry of the North Island of New Zealand and explored the river on a 3 days trip.

Many unforeseen things happened and the fishing did not convince at first, but in the end: is it about the fish?

Watch the movie to see my conclusion.
