"It was my first trip to NZ with NO knowledge about the area at all.
Without your help, my trip could not have been this good.
'Overall,our trip was amazing...it just couldn't be better!!!!!!
We all appreciate your assistance and hospitality.
We hope to come back to Gore in the near future.
We definately have to try the Oreti again for monster browns.
I can't let go the big nose of the brown trout that I missed.
This encourages me to return to New Zealand.
It won't surely go away till I get him !!!!!
Again,thankyou very much for everything !!!!!!
