I was told by a former fishing guide that I must see all of the 'wonderful' fish being carried away from the Tongariro Bridge Pool, but saw no bites among 4 anglers fishing for at least 35 minutes on Tuesday evening.
The adjective 'breathtaking' also was used to describe recent catches, but I said I'd prefer 'mouth watering'.
Thanks to Jason Bleibtreu for working on the
