Mousing in New Zealand

First a history lesson from BBC Earth.

Now videos for mousers.

Awesome! I seen the Bluemoon video before but not the others. Thanks for posting. New Zealand is a dream spot for me. I have some relatives that live there so I really need to make that trip happen…

Almost ironically, the South Island is probably more famous for the possibility of hooking huge brown trout on very small flies - one of the few places in the world where an angler can do that.

I was fortunate enough to get down there about 15 years ago and, though I had an arsenal of big streamers, we caught fish on small nymphs and dries.

Cicadas came out later in the month and changed the dynamic somewhat, fish became excited by them...but most of the allure of the South Island fishing, along with the natural beauty and local hospitality, was the opportunity to hook those big browns on size 14-18 ( and even smaller) hooks.
