TRM had a common request from a novice angler, who believed he was not quite ready for a professional guide but was looking for an experienced angler to improve his casting skills and learn the basic techniques for “reading” the water, etc.
SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed rules everything at TRM) often receives similar queries from inmates and their wives/partners. It is so important for ‘beginners’ to get the basics correct from the start.
For any requests like these we refer them directly to The Trout Man. He offers such a good value package as his ‘clients’ always stay at TRM. So TRM promised to post Harvey’s details on the Daily Report.
The fee schedule below was pinched from NZFishing.com website followed by a brief video of Harvey explaining what he is all about…
Just to let you know he operates on the Tongariro River as well as Rotorua – a more convenient half way house for those from Wellington/Manawatu regions to the south.
