Story: Freshwater fishing

Three fishermen (2nd of 2)

Three fishermen

George Yerex, retired director of the government’s Wildlife Division, visiting American angler Mr Cornelius of Field and Stream magazine, and Robert Biddle, chief ranger of the Lake Taupō fishing district, pose with their rainbow trout, in February 1958. They are all wearing waders and it is likely that they caught the fish at the mouth of a stream where it flows into Lake Taupō.
