November in the South Island of New Zealand ushers in a second opening season following the first in October. From the 1st of the month the remaining rivers, mostly around the lower half of the South Island open, these include all those in the tussock basin that is Mckenzie Country and the ‘Backcountry’ rivers around Queenstown, Wanaka and Te Anau.

To kick off another new beginning I went for n express overnight trip into one of these freshly opened backcountry waters with my mate Dave before he took off overseas. The fishing proved to be tough with the mostly rainbow trout, being very spooky and difficult to deceive. Although we did get into a few fish they were mostly a consolation to a memorable trip into a spectacular valley that lasted only 24 hours!
