Hey Joe’s House of Porn

After intercepting BHK’s first NZ field report of the new year we decided to send our very own Hey Joe Hyde down south to see if indeed NZ trout fishing doesn’t suck ass or if BHK had finally figured out how to use Photoshop…

Hey Dave, Brad says you’re looking for NZ fishing porn.  Here’s today’s catch!  It’s been pretty amazing so far….Brad knows his shit, and the fish (for the most part) have been accommodating.
Anyway, here’s some more pics, and we’ll send you the one of Brad’s 12 pounder tomorrow!

How are things in MT?


Mr. Magoo

A recently intercepted email from Sweaty Waders New Zealand field emissary BHK, who dispels the myth that trout fishing in NZ really sucks balls…

Before you look at the pictures I sent you guys, remember to keep your expectations low when you come and play in New Zealand!!

SO…. Repeat after me…. “one fish a day is good, and a 4 pound trout is a big fish”! Again…. “one fish a day is good, and a 4 pound trout is a big fish”!!…… O.K now you can look below:)

I had very memorable day today on a stream called Magoo creek. Pxx,Jxx and Jxxxx fished it with me three years ago. But this time I went much further up river. So far that I had a 3.5 hour return walk back to the car! I landed 23 fish up there today. I bet I spotted 60 trout or more.  Big guy’s were- 10 pound brown, a 7.25 brown, and a 7 pound rainbow. The rest were all nice bows around 2.5 to 5 pounds. I pulled two mice out of the ass of a smaller 4 pounder as well.

On Febuary 28th I left Livingston to meet up with Jeff Vermillion and Captain John Donnell in Miami to head down to Manaus to conduct an exploratory in the headwaters of the Branco and the Negro. Although many of our fishing days were in previously fished water, we were able to spend at least three days in virgin territory. Time well spent too I might add.

Not only were we able to see the desired water conditions and fish quality to make it a successful trip it was also a great experience to fish with John Donnell. John and Jeff Vermillion have fished together a lot in the keys in recent years and Jeff opted to invite him on this peacock mission. It was great to see a dude with so many years of guiding and fishing experience still have such incredible passion for the sport, the environs and the people we encountered on our trip. Keep the faith John!

I had to give him my lunch money.
