Fishing for trout on New Zealands West Coast of the South Island is a treat not to be missed. Brent Beadle is based at Moana on the shores of beautiful Lake Brunner where the trout die of old age. Brent is the longest serving local guide, 15 years in the area and he is a member of the N.Z. Professional Fishing Guides Assn.(NZPFGA). There are five lakes and upwards of 40 rivers or streams within an hours drive of Moana that hold trout, the great thing about Lake Brunner is that it is open 365 days of the year and it can be fished in any weather.
