As he already has a 6 weight and an 8 weight and only has two arms he thoughtfully decided it would get more use being freely available for TRM inmates. How kind is that?. That is what SWMBO admires with fresh water fishos. They are such nice considerate generous people.
Trent is better known as the ex-President of the Waiouru Fishing Club.
We should add Trent is not even an inmate. He advises as he is now based in Wellington he is selling his holiday home at Turangi so we hope we will see more of him at TRM in the future – as he has plenty of credit…
We have been asked several times recently whether there is a formal ‘casting school’ in Turangi for actively tutoring newbies wanting to try out fly fishing? Sadly no, but we are willing to assist those keen enough or refer them to Carol Harwood – Ph. (07) 386 6404 – who is an excellent fly casting teacher.
However TRM’s enthusiastic assistance to encourage new anglers inevitably results in consistent casualties to our formidable arsenal. Last week alone two rods were returned, damaged beyond repair. So many thanks to Trent.
Also above on right are SWMBO’s sunflowers and biking inmates from New Caledonia setting off for the Tongariro River Trail – note the tiny pillion passenger… She loved the ride.
The free draining pumice surface on the Tongariro River Trail makes it suitable in all weathers. TRM bike team heading off in the rain are Michelle, Jared, Caitlan, Josie & Marco from Albany.
Last – back by popular demand, TRM’s favourite holiday fun image below is the TRM water ballet class practising their equestrian skills in the lower Tongariro.
