The depth of body on some of the New Zealand fish is astonishing.

Here are some awesome photos from our guide Dylan Rome from his adventure in New Zealand last winter. Dylan has been guiding for Willowfly Anglers for four years. Despite being young, he is an exceptionally fishy guy and an absolute pleasure to fish with. Dylan hails from Texas, where he returns for mud seasons to fish for redfish between his many other fishing adventures.

Patrick Blackdale is a fishing guide for Willowfly Anglers at Three Rivers Resort, in Almont, Colorado.


You need to do a lot of hiking to find fish, but even the walk is gorgeous.

A buck like this puts up a big fight.

The tail on this fish is a sign of its advanced age. What a beast.
