These angling stories will whet your appetite to be out on the river again. From one end of New Zealand to the other, these short chapters introduce the reader to some of our country’s fabulous wild waters and the cunning brown and rainbow trout lurking in them. With beautiful photographs of New Zealand’s back country rivers this could almost be a travel book as much as a set of fishing yarns. As author Tony and his wife wander from one river to another you will be introduced to the wild, untamed beauty of our nation. You will experience Tony’s love of nature and the tranquillity of the back country rivers as much as the thrill of landing some of those big trout. Written by the author of The Black Singlet Brigade and Boots ’n’ All, Wimps in Waders is a book for anyone who enjoys a lazy afternoon on a riverbank as much as the adrenaline rush brought on by the hunt for that worthy adversary, New Zealand’s well-schooled trout.
Author Tony Walsh was born in Preston, England, and moved to New Zealand with his family at the age of 13 in 1952. As a young man teaching in country schools around New Zealand he developed a great love for the bush, for hunting and fishing, and for the curious characters that fill the isolated corners of this country with adventure. Now retired with his loving wife at Waimana, near the beautiful Urewera ranges, he spends his days fishing, entertaining the grandchildren, reminiscing, and writing.
