Book Review : Rotorua Trout Fishing Guide

Rotorua, a Trout Fishing Destination.

Rotorua Trout Fishing Guide / Rotorua Anglers Association c.2000

A guide to many trout fishing venues in the Rotorua and Bay of Plenty area. It is mainly for the inexperienced or beginner, but experts may find something of value in these pages.

Members of the Rotorua Anglers Association have generously shared their experience, tips & advice, local knowledge, fishing techniques and photographs.

I do not fish, but found some of the history on the Rotorua Lakes Fishery and the Ngongotaha Hatchery an interesting read. I especially liked the, “Anglers Prayer.”

The Angler’s Prayer
Lord suffer me to catch a fish
So big that even I
When telling of it afterwards
Should have no need to lie….

From : Papers Past, Auckland Star 30 January 1923, pg. 5
