T.F.M. Spotting-North Island Trout Bums

Sometimes it is very hard to believe that Tim Angeli and fly fishing guide Joel Thompson are both working in New Zealand since they both look like full fledged trout bums to me.  Tim is a full time student working on his advanced degree and Joel is spending a couple months working with a lodge on their recreation program.

Recently Tim and Joel met up for a few days of fly fishing on the North Island of New Zealand and managed to each score a few T.F.M. Spotting photos as well.  This may be the first T.F.M. post which actually has two different submissions for the photo contest.  Tough to chose my favorites from this mix.

We had some good days, and some tough days, but overall it was one of the most fun trips I've been on. Four days chasing big trout, in beautiful country, with great friends. Life is good!"

I am a little more than jealous.
