The Introduction of Brown Trout to New Zealand

Post by TheBadger » Mon Sep 11, 2017 8:11 am

Hi guys,

For the past 5 years I've been researching the introduction of brown trout to New Zealand. This year I teamed up with my friend and filmmaker Ben Pierce and together we produced a documentary on the introduction of brown trout to New Zealand. The full version will be released in the coming months but we've submitted a short version into a competition put on by the Royal Society of New Zealand. We need your help to win the competition!! You can vote for our film at this link: https://www.thinkable.org/submission_entries/D85JxV9n Signing up to vote takes 1s with Facebook and there is no spam involved - it's just so they can keep votes legitimate.

By voting for us here you're helping us to be able to produce more films like this, so please take a minute, watch the film and give us a vote.

Nice one! As you well know I was very keen to see a larger celebration of this major milestone, but any form of celebration is a good thing hey? ;)

Hopefully this kind of exposure opens some peoples eyes as to the importance of Salmonidae in NZ? Iv had discussions with some "environmentalists" who have no idea about the introduction of trout into NZ and one that was convinced that salmon were native :roll:

Nice work supporting the team at Epic too! A pity that F&G didn't get more coverage as they are the ones that have managed to perpetuate the existence of trout in NZ.


Bucking trends in fly fishing since 1970!
