Two happy tourist anglers, Lina Rylen and Markus Lindstrom from Sweden. Two fish bums who have driven all over NZ in the last three months to explore trout fishing rivers and lakes.
After three months touring in the North & South islands they finally found the perfect affordable laid back place with the most trout – Turangi.
They are the type of tourists TRM love and need to encourage much more.
They might feel intimidated being classified in the category of “freedom campers” but this couple concentrate on taking only photos and leave only footprints.
Their only real fault is they make us other fishos feel really old. So young and fit and enjoying life to the full – that is so unfair. We are so jealous.
They were about to depart again on a bike circuit around the Tongariro River trail.
Their favourite pool was Kamahi – why? Nothing to do with the fishing so much but it ticked all the scenic boxes and they had it all to themselves all day.
They will be back.
