Video: Fly Fishing for Backcountry South Island Trout in “Pure New Zealand Part 2”

Todd Moen and Catch Magazine continue to roll out great video shorts, and for anglers itching for some action from New Zealand, Moen’s new video should be well-received!

From Catch Magazine:

“New Zealand’s South Island has to be the closest one can get to heaven without actually dying first. Truly, New Zealand is my all-time favorite place to film, fish and explore. For the T-Motion Theater back in 2015, I had the chance to film angler and lodge owner Shauna Daughters, along with her husband Chris Daughters, on one of their favorite South Island rivers. Together they own and operate the South Island’s Cedar Lodge, located on the Makarora River just about an hour’s drive of the adventurist town of Wanaka. It was Shauna’s birthday, and last February she was able to escape the usual chores of lodge operation and parenting for the day. Shawna spotted, hooked and landed a few fabulous birthday trout, and the adventure on the river was captured in ‘Pure New Zealand Part 2’. Thanks to the phenomenal helicopter guide and pilot, Dion Matheson, who flew us into the clear pools and magical stretches of water only offered in New Zealand. Sit back and watch Shauna simply rock this fly fishing adventure into New Zealand’s backcountry!”
