In the years since writing his second book, The Trout Bohemia, Derek Grazelewski has returned to guiding, sharing his passion and secrets for fly fishing with enthusiastic anglers from around the world.

But his life is about to change when he is contacted by `a simple Colorado girl who just loves to fly fish’. They strike up a long-distance relationship, and Jennifer soon flies out to New Zealand to join Derek for a season of fly-fishing – an experience that will transform their approach to life and trout fishing forever. With Jennifer’s fly-casting technique best described as `punk rock’, Derek has his work cut out for him, sharing with her his skills and techniques for successfully fishing New Zealand’s waterways and landing that prize trout.

Join Derek and Jennifer as they embark upon an angling adventure that takes them from the banks of the Clutha River in the South Island of New Zealand, to the roaring rivers of Colorado, USA. Filled with Derek’s wry story telling and expert advice and secrets tips for fly-fishing, this is a true tale of finding trout and love in New Zealand.
