The story behind the book

Darryl was commissioned to take underwater photographs for  New Zealand Geographic Magazine, and became interested in their life. He spent many hours in rivers in both the central North Island and Nelson-Marlborough district taking pictures of both rainbow and brown trout and their young.

Gillian was once a keen trout fisherwoman and as any successful trout fisherman will tell you, she came to understand  that you really need to understand the lifestyle and behavior of these fish in order to outwit them.
