"Damsels in Distress" on a New Zealand Stream

Damsels in distress on a New Zealand stream
Our colleague Simon Perkins recently honeymooned in New Zealand with his wife, Els, and he captured this amazing footage. Here’s how he explains it:

My wife and I were fishing with friend/guide Dean Whaanga in New Zealand when a combination of bad weather and good timing resulted in a fish giving us the experience of a lifetime.

Swan River Report 1/1/2013

The weather has finally given me the motivation to go for a fish; Trev was pretty keen to give the bream a go as well, so we headed off to the Swan River to give them a go. We arrived there around 11.30 this morning to a slight breeze and soon had the boat on the water.

We were told about some possible hot spots from a couple of the comp gurus and headed straight there, it only took a couple of casts to get the first one in the boat as there were plenty of fish in this area.
After a bit of fun we went down to the cut and had a look, didn't see any in the shallows so we decided to head upstream as far as we could go, just for a look.
Didn't see one fish up there so it was back down to the deep water where all the fish seemed to be.
Had a great day with my boy, I think we could get used to this “bream’ in”.
