    Trout Dreams
    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.

  • West Coast Walking a Naturalist's Guide
    West Coast Walking a Naturalist's Guide
    The West Coast of New Zealand's South Island arguably boasts the greatest range of the country's natural attractions. From the warm, temperate nikau palm forests at Karamea to the cool beech forests of Haast, from the alpine heights of Arthur's Pass to the dramatic Paparoa coast, glaciers that descend into valleys filled with unique podocarp rainforests, plus pristine lakes and lagoons - the West Coast has it all. New Zealand is a centre of endemicity, with over 80% of our native non-marine birds, reptiles, flowering plants, gymnosperms, land-snails and insects restricted to this country, and hundreds of those species are found on the West Coast. The Coast is an essential destination for any overseas naturalist or bird-watcher, and a place New Zealanders interested in nature should return to time and again. This remote part of the country is New Zealand as tourists and many Kiwis imagine it to be. Remote and wild it may seem, yet most of its natural attractions are accessible from sealed roads and well-formed paths, some even wheelchair accessible.
    This book presents an introduction to the West Coast's physical environment, plants and animals, and a guide to the walks, lakes and highways of the region. Short easy paths are described in some detail, along with the plants, animals and natural features to look for along the way. Longer, more demanding trails are described in less detail. The lakes and lagoons are best explored by kayak, and guidance is given for the paddling naturalist.
