North Island Trout Fishing Guide is a practical handbook that provides accurate up-to-date information on trout fishing in the North Island of New Zealand. It is aimed at local anglers and overseas enthusiasts attracted by New Zealand's unsurpassed fishing waters.

Many lesser known, more remote but equally rewarding back-country waters are also described. In all, just over 60 lakes and dams and 320 streams and rivers are covered.
Watch your coast unroll from the road to fall silently into the peaceful water. Feel the strike on the rod, the running of the reel, the intense concentration of playing the fish. With the South Island Trout Fishing Guide, you will discover all the tips and techniques you need for a successful trip to the world-renowned waters of this anglers' paradise. Drawing on over sixty years' experience of fishing New Zealand's back-country rivers and lakes, John Kent has created an unparalleled, practical guide for local and visiting anglers alike.
